slow it down, if only for a moment just breathe and close my eyes why make plans for tomorrow? when tomorrow’s just a matter of time science knows we all got one shot don’t let it slip away but there’s comfort in distraction and i’ve got time to waste… …all i need’s another lifetime don’t let it slip away killing time’s a capital crime and you end up doin time hold on! we’re not done with yesterday! it’s just a temporary plan some say there’s no place for nostalgia “don’t focus on the past!“ but there’s comfort in what has been and no one will ever change… …all i need’s another lifetime don’t let it slip away killing time’s a capital crime and you end up doin time don’t let it go to waste… …all i need’s another lifetime don’t let it slip away killing time’s a capital crime and you got hell to pay

eyes closed, sippin on your morning coffee oh the next few days will feel like hell for you and there’s no crutch left for you to use and run back the cover’s blown, it’s too late why don’t you just take a number, stand in line I remember all the best words that you said and all the fun we had, the times we spent and it’s so easy just to fall back and pretend that all we had were good intentions (and) red-eyed, sippin on a late night drink again it’s easier that way to stay half sane and through self-medication you don’t have to be so patient it keeps the demons quiet why don’t you take all the pills that you can find? I remember all the best words that you said and all the fun we had, the times we spent and it’s so easy just to fall back and pretend that all we had were good intentions (and) I remember all the best words that you said and all the fun we had, the times we spent and it’s not easy just to bend and not to break cause we just keep repeating our mistakes

all these words coming out of my mouth hear myself talking, it's my voice, no doubt and I can read all the signs over there I know this place I know why we came here we got so high along the way chasing whatever would get us away slowly the reasons to stay get lost in all the decay and now we’re fading into places I don’t… …don’t ever want to be don't you say it out loud, put on a smile, get a drink, shut your mouth unless you plan on giving in to the fear let's roll with the punches, just don't let em near the days go by, we lost our way maybe it’s never going to be ok Slowly the reasons to stay get lost in all the decay and now we’re fading into places I don’t… …don’t ever want to be Slowly the reasons to stay get lost in all the decay and now we’re fading into places I don’t… …don’t ever want to be
