lyrics

Verse 1

For years I’ve been looking at my life like it’s two bit
No if or and's, no question when I will improve it
Just ruthless decisions, no heart whatever the mission I do it
True shit, these loose lips could sink two ships
Now I’m trying to think before I speak
Put my heart into my words, trying to eat before I drink
Now I’m trying to look before I leap
Put my soul into my actions, trying to sow before I reap
See I never gave a fuck
Thought no one ever gave me enough
But I see the error in that mind state
The crime rate keeps growing, but now I know that I’m safe
I turned my back upon a lot
But I never ran, I simply walked away before I got shot
Now I’m sitting thinking ‘bout the realist shit
Life seems meaningless, until you start to feel it slip

Chorus 1

Never looking at my life, only looking for the prize
No one can budget proper ‘till they start looking at the price
The mirror had me looking in my eyes
Thinking what would it be like to start looking with my mind
One day you’ll hear the knock and you’ll know that this is it
But only once you reach the edge and you start to feel it slip
We feel it slip, we feel it slip, we feel it slip, we feel it slip
Life is quick so right the ship, before it slips

Verse 2

Remember one thing when you start to feel you’ve been bested
The lesson we never truly learn until the deathbed
The hows and whys don't matter much, it’s bad enough
We spend our time staring at numbers always trying to add ‘em up
You’ll never have enough until you give on that dream
Scrooge McDuck was sad as fuck, this life is not a magazine
This life is not always bad as it seems
Go soak it up, become a sponge, spend the cash on magic beans
It doesn't matter if they're real or not
The realist shit in life is the day when you stop feeling that knot
In your stomach, always wondering when is that and where is that
Why is his better than mine and why is hers better than that
Be happy with what you have
It’s so cliche and yet we all forget and live like Mr. Crabs
The truth about money, it can only buy shit
And you'll realize the truth when you feel this life slip

Chorus 2

Never looking at my life, only looking for the prize
No one can budget proper ‘till they start looking at the price
The mirror had me looking in my eyes
Thinking what would it be like to start looking with my mind
One day you’ll hear the knock and you’ll know that this is it
But only once you reach the edge and you start to feel it slip
We feel it slip, we feel it slip, we feel it slip, we feel it slip
Life is quick so right the ship, before it slips

Verse 3

The clock keeps ticking every day
Incessantly we try to master our time in every way
But life is not about a clock, about an hour or a minute
Life is about how you spend it, the good times we find within it
The clock doesn't care when you die, it just keeps spinning
Time is venom, take the time to feel the rhythm
Its cliche, but stop and smell the flowers
It’s ok, even if for just one minute every hour
I know this is tough for the restless
I wrestle with this, my brain is constant congested
It’s like all my thoughts are infested
Always trying to cook the food without stopping to ingest it
But that road is a dead end
The only finish line we cross is loneliness and dead friends
So stop to take in the fresh air for a bit
If not now, then you'll do it once you feel the world slip

Chorus 3

Never looking at my life, only looking for the prize
No one can budget proper ‘till they start looking at the price
The mirror had me looking in my eyes
Thinking what would it be like to start looking with my mind
One day you’ll hear the knock and you’ll know that this is it
But only once you reach the edge and you start to feel it slip
We feel it slip, we feel it slip, we feel it slip, we feel it slip
Life is quick so right the ship, before it slips
