Everything gone I’m feeling the blank dimension That needs to be filled With the choice of life that appeals to me Singing a song About my conciliation With me in the past And the brand new man that I want to be I know that I can prove it again I know that I can groove it again I know that I can do it again I know it I know it I know it It’s all I need to know As I greet the dawn I’m waking tall and strong Yes, my heart’s at ease Having found the peace I’m cured from all the wrong I’m not alone In sharing this new direction As if I’m reborn I engage in this, which belongs to me Sensing the tone Of newly revealed vibrations Grateful and sound I’m burgeoning like an almond tree I know that I have found me again I know that I have caught me again I know that I have got me again I know it I know it I know it Can you feel my beat? Running down the street I’m flying like a kite By the almond trees Curving like the breeze I’m soaring fast and high Can you see me thrive? Getting back to life Set free from letting go Swimming in the stream Following my dream As I did once long ago

Calma Calma 04:05
I met a man who told me how to measure All the precious treasure we enjoy Each and every day Each and every day He told me "Hey, young fellow with the smart sombrero Running through the yellow, don't you ever forget Life's a holiday Celebrate It" And on the other side there's a fine magician Juggling, shuffling, yearning recognition Will it ever come? Will it ever come? Sometimes you throw just once and get the double sixes And other times you reach the end of the line (and) Throw it all away Throw it all away Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey Calma, calma Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey Calma, calma Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey Calma, calma Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey Calma, calma No matter how important or demanding All of these things are anchors on our ankles What've we become? What've we become? How many times I see me pass right by me Coming and going but where is it at? Come and have a look Come and have a look Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey Calma, calma Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey Calma, calma Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey Calma, calma Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey Calma, calma And every time I feel condescending Full of pride and arrogance, oh so trendy I shut my mouth and bite my tongue Instead I power up and grab a microphone I got my record player spinning Joy Division Turn my back to my big mother fucking television It shakes me up and sets me straight Crocodile Dundee is no longer my mate Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey Calma, calma Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey Calma, calma Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey Calma, calma Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey Calma, calma

Hello quiet confidence, where have you been? I guess you couldn’t stick around, no you couldn’t stand the sin Old subconscious laughter, is he with you my friend? Have you been hanging out with happy beyond the rainbow’s end? I’m glad you came to visit, thanks for stopping by What’s that, you say you’re leaving because I’m getting high Why can’t you hang with Mary Jane, she’s really kind of fly? We used to be a trio until you left but why? You say you were her partner, you were her right hand man But Mary Jane destroyed you like only Mary can She made you lose your car keys, forget your master plan She burned away the world while you held it in your hand But what about the good times, the times she made us laugh? She’d help us feel music and dissipate our wrath Come on now my quiet confidence, Mary’s not all bad Some of the times I spent with Mary were the best I ever had I’m glad you came to visit, thanks for stopping by What’s that, you say you’re leaving because I’m getting high Why can’t you hang with Mary Jane, she’s really kind of fly? We used to be a trio until you left but why? I’m glad you came to visit, thanks for stopping by What’s that, you say you’re leaving because I’m getting high Why can’t you hang with Mary Jane, she’s really kind of fly? We used to be a trio until you left but why? Sure she makes me sleepy, but only when I’m tired I’d rather be irie, than continuously wired More mellow than the fiends I’ve seen society has sired The only reason most don’t burn is fear of getting fired You say when Mary’s with you everything is cool But when she starts to leave she leaves you feeling like a fool She smothers your ambition and slowly starts to rule Your every waking moment and you’re more than just a tool I’m glad you came to visit, thanks for stopping by What’s that, you say you’re leaving because I’m getting high Why can’t you hang with Mary Jane, she’s really kind of fly? We used to be a trio until you left but why? I’m glad you came to visit, thanks for stopping by What’s that, you say you’re leaving because I’m getting high Why can’t you hang with Mary Jane, she’s really kind of fly? We used to be a trio until you left but why? I’m glad you came to visit I’m glad you came to visit I’m glad you came to visit I’m glad you came to visit I’m glad you came to visit, thanks for stopping by What’s that, you say you’re leaving because I’m getting high Why can’t you hang with Mary Jane, she’s really kind of fly? We used to be a trio until you left but why?

So many ideas come to mind But none of them jive at this time I wonder if I am not going mad And just 'cause I do I might be right It better be true when I open my eyes Next time around I don't wanna lose sight Of what I've just found This better be good 'cause I'm not in the mood I don't wanna hear "would, should or could" I've gone all in just to see it through I've come all out for a glimpse of you It better be true when I open my eyes Next time around I don't wanna lose sight Of what I've just found I wanna be, wanna be, wanna be bound In this moment alone Frozen in time, burning inside Don't let me go Oh no, oh no I'm ten feet tall in the dancing hall Never been more self assured Stepping on clouds I can dance all night This better be true or I'll lose my mind It better be true when I open my eyes Next time around I don't wanna lose sight Of what I've just found I wanna be, wanna be, wanna be bound In this moment alone Frozen in time, burning inside Don't let me go Oh no, oh no Oh no, oh no

You gotta cut me loose It's time I break the news Can't you see I'm not amused? I'm about to blow a fuse This time I got it right I've been at it throughout the night I must put it to the test Gotta bust it out of my chest Madness is my home Cos I am a mathematician Madness is my home Because I know its definition Madness is my home When I turn on the ignition Madness is my home That's where I breakthrough with ambition We're running out of time I can't say I'm doin' fine I think I'm losing my mind All I got down is my rhyme The numbers just don't add (up) And I am turning rad (ha) How long do you think we got Before this world breaks in half Madness is my home Cos I am a mathematician Madness is my home Because I know its definition Madness is my home When I turn on the ignition Madness is my home That's where I breakthrough with ambition

When I was a little boy I thought the sky was blue There was nothing that I couldn’t do When I was a young adult I thought I knew it all Had the whole world in my crystal ball Never felt the fear of today Never thought I’d live to see the day My face in the mirror Distorted in disbelief The eyes of a killer Staring back at me My face in the mirror Distorted in disbelief The eyes of a killer Staring back at me I have come to realize Nothing is as it seems All my idols have betrayed my dreams Never felt so empty and blasé Never thought I’d live to see the day My face in the mirror Distorted in disbelief The eyes of a killer Staring back at me My face in the mirror Distorted in disbelief The eyes of a killer Staring back at me Never felt the fear of today Never thought I’d live to see the day Never felt so empty and blasé Never thought it’d come to this charade My face in the mirror Distorted in disbelief The eyes of a killer Staring back at me

A younger version of me Who wasn’t completely free Invited me to see A choice I did not make And as I gazed intently Where this choice of mine had sent me I hungered for a way To bring me back that day So that I could choose again Because in this choice of mine I had left the light behind The light that made me blind To think that money matters And as I walked away The chains began to shatter But that was long ago So long ago as though I didn’t choose that choice Now I’m driving this Rolls Royce So accustomed to these chains I only feel them when it rains As the raindrops hit the pane So I hang my head in shame Oh, how wonder who’s insane Is it the beggar with his bane? Or the top hat with his cane If only I could choose again Because in this choice of mine I had left the light behind The light that made me blind To think that money matters And as I walked away These chains began to shatter

Because you asked I’m going to tell you How my road brought me here where I belong I wanted acclaim, I needed admission Into a world full of fame and glamour life I hopped on a plane, a mustang of freedom That took me away far beyond from where I was born I landed these docks across the Atlantic Eager for crowns, gold and grandeur in Kodak dreams But then I began the schooling of life The one that is real and the one that is tough I learned from mistakes, my ego got roughed Down to the depths of my natural self Because you asked I’m going to tell you I paid an arm and a leg to earn this prize The man I was then, cosmetic and fragile I buried behind and my soul is placid again Because you asked I’m going to tell you The warnings were there, on the wall, for all to see I trained to be me, I learned to be helpful And tend to the child deep inside, unspoiled and true All of those years I fought to become The one that I always imagined I’d be The path was abrupt, tough and obscure I couldn’t perceive how it ends or begins All of those days of hard work and strain All of them turned to be wonderful grains And then there were sprouts, the blossoms of self They taught me to be as sincere as I can

Tic-toc, clic-clac… clock hands Moving like a picture Flip-flop, hip-hop, foxtrot… Pepper to the mixture Just shake it Don't fake it We're junkies of the rhythm Don't fake it Just shake it We're junkies of the rhythm Just like always you make A very tall impression And I glide like a kite Never felt more alive Just shake it Don't fake it We're junkies of the rhythm Don't fake it Just shake it We're junkies of the rhythm Flying bits of crass And nasty information You're hot and fuming - so compelled To say "correction", Your Honour You see right through me And you freeze me with obsession And I glide like a kite Never felt more alive Just shake it Don't fake it We're junkies of the rhythm Don't fake it Just shake it We're junkies of the rhythm Just shake it Don't fake it We're junkies of the rhythm Just shake it Don't fake it We're junkies of the rhythm Just shake it Don't fake it We're junkies of the rhythm Just shake it Don't fake it We're junkies of the rhythm And I glide like a kite Never felt more alive

Selling myself into a sort of slavery All I’ve got now is this cubicle I’m told if I work twelve hours a day For prostitute’s pay, well then maybe They will put a window in my cage As if that could ever appease my rage I guess that I should act… act my age But I heard somewhere that life’s a stage Yes, life’s a stage And not a competition So print that on the front page Of the next Sunday edition I had to leave all the corporate worlds Behind in the wake of my succulent swirls Their corporate fake and material girls Just got in the way of my cutbacks and curls So I got a night job, shared a house with a slob Started bartending with Jake and Jarrod Ran my own business as a daytime job Well I might con ya, but at least I don’t rob Yes, life’s a stage And not a competition So print that on the front page Of the next Sunday edition Yes, life’s a stage And not a competition So print that on the front page Of the next Sunday edition Claim half of what I make, in the cooler getting baked Take as much money as I can take From every alcoholic for alcohol’s sake Because they are the leaves and I am the rake Can I get another beer for you? Is there anything else that you’d like me to do? Should I get down and shine your shoes? Just as long as you leave me a dollar or two Yes, life’s a stage And not a competition So print that on the front page Of the next Sunday edition Yes, life’s a stage And not a competition So print that on the front page Of the next Sunday edition

Hypnotize me once And I assure you I'll be back for more Mesmerize me once And you'll see me knocking at your door Satisfy me once And I'll show you what I've got in store Just open up your heart Don't be afraid, no, no, no more I know it is wrong to repeat it I know it will hurt but I can't let go I'm falling for you can't you see it I'm setting the stage for the same mistake Never mind if we lose Track of time or common sense I just wanna get lost again Take your soft face in my hands I wanna wake next to you Hear your voice caressing mine I wanna make the same mistake I wanna make the same mistake I know it is wrong to repeat it I know it will hurt but I can't let go I'm falling for you can't you see it I'm setting the stage for the same mistake I know it is wrong to repeat it I know it will hurt but I can't let go I'm falling for you can't you see it I'm setting the stage for the same mistake

I Had Enough 06:17
I still remember how we cheated death And how we didn’t give a damn if we got hurt I still remember all the nights we spent Roaming streets without a care in the world And every time I look into the past I realize quite fast that those were sacred times Abound with innocence and pure beliefs I wish there was a way for me to get it back I had enough, I had enough (I gotta get back my sanity) I had enough, I had enough (I gotta find a new way ahead) I had enough, I had enough (I gotta wipe off that vanity) I had enough, I had enough I still remember all the dirty streets The smell of borsch and meet, the clutter in a heap I still remember that December When we all made a pact to never turn our back I still relive that sharp adrenaline Rushing through my veins and pounding in my head And feel the crater hole it left inside As if a part of me is forever dead I had enough, I had enough (I gotta get back my sanity) I had enough, I had enough (I gotta find a new way ahead) I had enough, I had enough (I gotta wipe off that vanity) I had enough, I had enough I had enough, I had enough (I gotta get back my sanity) I had enough, I had enough (I gotta find a new way ahead) I had enough, I had enough (I gotta wipe off that vanity)

When your blood starts pounding Inside your veins Come magic purple haze With sparks of red The birds start singing The sweetest tune Then you taste, you feel, you breathe The wonderful smack The wonderful smack When your lids get heavy And you think you’re dead Your entire room gets swallowed up Inside your bed Your mind starts chasing The dragon’s tail Then you wane, you fade, you drown Into the wonderful smack The wonderful smack The wonderful smack The wonderful smack Now you flirt with it And now you don’t Now you dance with it And now you don’t Now you sleep with it And now you don’t Now you run with it And now you don’t Now you fear it And now you don’t Now you fight it And now you don’t Now you hate it And now you don’t This wonderful smack This wonderful smack The wonderful smack The wonderful smack The wonderful… Now you flirt with it And now you don’t Now you dance with it And now you don’t Now you sleep with it And now you don’t Now you run with it And now you don’t Now you fear it And now you don’t Now you fight it And now you don’t Now you hate it And now you don’t This wonderful smack This wonderful smack The wonderful smack The wonderful smack The wonderful…

Win Win Win 03:47
Words can’t go where I’ve just been Bought me a book about a fallen friend I learned of Satan’s origin Hanging in hell about a half past ten Demon tried to con me, sell me a sin A potion of control over mortal men As a matter of fact, I’ve got plenty of Zen But I’ll take two sins, you got change for a ten? Messed up, drawn out Running back to my hole now Messed up, drawn out Running back to my hole Messed up, drawn out Running back to my hole now Messed up, drawn out Running back to my hole Sit right back and watch the world pretend That the meaning of life is to win, win, win And heaven knows where Satan has been So wash your hands before you eat with him But that was then, way back when The sword was so much mightier than the pen I’m a fisher of men every now and then No, Daniel didn’t die in the Lion’s den Can you conceive of what he believed in? Is there more to life than a long weekend? A world devoid of all gentlemen Is a land that man has wandered within Messed up, drawn out Running back to my hole now Messed up, drawn out Running back to my hole Messed up, drawn out Running back to my hole now Messed up, drawn out Running back to my hole Sit right back and watch the world pretend That the meaning of life is to win, win, win And heaven knows where Satan has been So wash your hands before you eat with him Messed up, drawn out Running back to my hole now Messed up, drawn out Running back to my hole Messed up, drawn out Running back to my hole now Messed up, drawn out Running back to my hole

You call me a coward When I object your war Condemn me for asking What it is we’re fighting for You call me a coward When I refuse to kill Solely for profit So you can get your high and thrill You call me a coward For questioning your lies Collateral damage Is no solace when children die You call me a coward But I don’t give a damn No smoke and mirrors Will ever make me wonder who I am Men will fight and men will die Many men will never know why They’ll come up with a million ways to justify But murder is murder in His eyes Men will fight and men will die Many men will never know why They’ll come up with a million ways to justify But murder is murder in His eyes You call me a coward For questioning your lies Collateral damage Is no solace when children die You call me a coward But I don’t give a damn No smoke and mirrors Will make me question where I stand You are the coward Behind your mighty force Calling us heroes Because we plow with no remorse You are the coward Within your hallowed halls With your executive orders For your belligerent sick cause

My Heart 05:02
I saw you walking through the open door There you were, you could hide no more I waited long for this day to come To embrace me like the morning sun You never left even though you'd gone I heard your voice many times before Soft spoken in a time of war You calmed me down and I’d cry no more My heart was dead on Always knew you’d see me home My heart, it knows Your soul will always lead me on You always knew how to take a stand To moderate like Superman You mesmerize me with your haunting smile And stupefy me with your commending style You paralyze me as you read my mind And hypnotize me with your magic bind Your signals beam like a satellite They shudder deep and mystify My heart was dead on Always knew you’d see me home My heart, it knows Your soul will always lead me on My heart was dead on It always knew you’d see me home My heart, it knows Your soul will always lead me on

I Know That 05:52
Building equals burning Aiding means enslaving Propagating equals lying Multiplying means more dying Weighing equals seeing Sacrificing equals feeling Starving equals yearning Thinking equals learning I know that Tell me how to live With all that I know that Come and help me breathe When I’m mad Poverty bears frustration Misery breeds desperation Business means assassination Conclusion spells illusion I know that Tell me how to live With all that I know that Can you help me breathe When I’m mad I know that Tell me how to live With all that I know that Come on help me breathe When I’m mad
21.
I see you through the foggy window Head to toe in black you tread I’m starting to discern the symbols And peacefully I lay my head I’m ready to begin the journey And travel back in time with you I fear not what lies before me I need to hear your point of view Tell me a little story About those giant men About those days of glory Make me feel ashamed You enter like the wind from shore And spread out like a shadow’s shade I feel as if we’ve met before But I can’t remember how it went You’ve come to tell a bedtime story Or something else you have in mind? I give myself to you, don’t worry Just promise me to treat me kind Tell me a little story About those mighty men About those days of glory Help me comprehend Tell me a little story About those noble men About those days of glory Help me understand
22.
Each time I turn around Hoping you will be behind The empty room keeps laughing at me Break down, hit the ground My mind has locked me out And I just can't keep it real Right on, gotta move on Pick myself by the ropes Shine my shoes and get some new clothes Deadlock - bust it up New start, gotta crank it up There will be no more messing around Tell me off Let me down Brush me off Sell me out But don't twist my mind Set me up Turn me in Shut me up Kick me out But don't twist my mind Step up, pick it up Never mind we messed it up Look at me I'm ready to dance A time bomb or sweet romance come closer and take a chance No matter if it makes no sense Come on, just once more Buckle up, it is time to go Rack 'em up this time it's for real Head on, fear no more Stand tall, the game is on Sometimes you gotta crash to break free Tell me off Let me down Brush me off Sell me out But don't twist my mind Set me up Turn me in Shut me up Kick me out But don't twist my mind

You believe in magic You believe in dreams You don’t even know What fear means You bestow to people The eternal youth With your words And with your every move I can hear them whisper All in disbelief As if you’re from another time And place away from here I can see the madness Creeping up their eyes And the fear taking over Their sensors in their minds They got no melody They got no melody They got only dissonance They got only dissonance Look at all the people And their fancy shoes Gathering around this crazy fool Look at all the people Blinded by the light Paying tribute to their choice of vice You can see them dreaming You can see them yearn The life they always wish they had But never got their turn You can see the fire Growing in their eyes The anger feeding off the flames Now they want your life They got no melody They got no melody They got only dissonance They got only dissonance They got no melody They got no melody They got only dissonance They got only dissonance They got no melody They got no melody You believe in magic You believe in dreams You don’t even know What fear means You bestow to people The eternal youth With your words And with your every move I can hear them whisper All in disbelief As if you’re from another time And place away from here I can see the madness Creeping up their eyes And the fear taking over Their sensors in their minds They got no melody They got no melody They got only dissonance They got only dissonance They got no melody They got no melody They got only dissonance They got only dissonance They got no melody They got no melody They got no melody They got no melody

Digging deep into my bag of bullshit I realize I’m just a man An animal evolving faster Than evolution’s original plan Money makes, makes me happy Twenty dollars for a tan NASA bought, bought the moon And the moon men they all ran Next week we’ll lasso Mars Incorporate the stars Every night we all get wasted At hip new Martian bars We are so, so complex We even pay for sex It is easier than marriage To generation X It is time for you to make a decision Take a step back from your television Don’t just be another paranoid pigeon How many wars in the name of religion? The atheists’ greatest fear Is the possible power of prayer So I’ll pray for their souls And give them all a scare My favourite part of being Is the beauty that I’m seeing When I look at waves and trees Every envious evil flees Magic floats, floats in dreams And I can move the world The only thing that I need is An electronic girl So now I have, have to heave This final thought at you If in something you believe It just might make it true It is time for you to make a decision Take a step back from your television Don’t just be another paranoid pigeon How many wars in the name of religion? It is time for you to make a decision Take a step back from your television Don’t just be another paranoid pigeon How many wars in the name of religion?

You can spend all your life Finding meaning on the ground You can simply close your eyes Start chasing dreams that do not count You can waste all you've got And end up stuck in a rut You can drift like a leaf Falling slowly to settle down Move on beyond You shouldn’t wander Keep on moving on Life's a wonder You can set yourself free With the power of your mind Best if you can realize What it is you need to find Lift your head up and breathe Let the wind be your guide Turn your eyes to the sea And feel the breeze, it'll let you fly Move on beyond You shouldn’t wander Keep on moving on Life's a wonder Move on beyond You shouldn’t wander Keep on moving on Life's a wonder Read on beyond These gloomy headlines Rise on above This sea of stillness

It makes me blue I don't know why Just opened up my eyes The sun is soothing but I'm sad More tired than last night Is it right I should remind me To be happy and content Say it loud to believe it How did I descend? Hold on, hang on Tell me blue is power Blue is like my soul Hold on, hang on Tell me blue is power Blue is like my soul Yes, I wasted quite some time But how could I have learned? See me blue, I sing to you A tear is cutting loose It is not a battle The key is to endure Hold on, hang on Tell me blue is power Blue is like my soul Hold on, hang on Tell me blue is power Blue is like my soul And now you know How blue, how naked Is my soul when I sing this song to you Hold on, hang on Tell me blue is power It takes me home from wherever I've gone And now you know How blue, how naked Is my soul when I sing this song to you Hold on, hang on Tell me blue is power It takes me home from wherever I've gone

You can ignore me but the more you do The more I’ll keep on getting up so it’s understood I’ve come a long way to tell the tale For this life is truly meant for living, and not for rent or sale The more I know the less I see How logic shakes hands with reason while they disagree Is this the path I chose or did it choose me? I feel blinded by the obvious, so please help me be Ordinary life - undisputed master of will Herd us down the hill, spin us like a ball Till we give in The more I see the more I wish There was more than what I care to see inside my dish I wake at night and I can’t fall asleep So I carry on sleepwalking as I drag my feet Ordinary life - undisputed master of will Herd us down the hill, spin us like a ball Till we give in Ordinary life - it knows how to keep us at bay Feed us just enough, spoil us just a bit And tuck us in bed
28.
Another moment and what you hold is gone Another moment and you're all alone A single moment is all it takes to blow Away forever everything you know Such a long time since I thought this way I thought I got it but I got caught in the fray As if tomorrow never came my way And yesterday was light years away Another moment is standing in your way It's like a dirt road, dry and hard, a fork ahead Another moment and we start again From the beginning, one more time, the end Take a deep breath now and look ahead Here we are in the moment So many moments never ever count And then there comes one and turns everything around Such a long time since I thought this way I thought I got it but got caught in the fray As if tomorrow never came my way And yesterday was light years away Such a long time since I thought this way I thought I got it but I got caught in the fray As if tomorrow never came my way And yesterday was light years away

Tell me, tell me, tell me Tell me how you see it now Tell me how you see Tell me how you see it now Tell me how you see it ‘Cause I can feel the tear down my eye My mouth is dry ‘cause you’re not the guy I dreamed and cried, I can’t believe (it)… what a lie You make me sweat, then you make me wet This craving I can’t let it go and you know You’ve got control of my rock’n’roll You promised that you’d catch me but I still fall Tell me how you see Tell me how you see it now Tell me how you see Tell me how you see it now I don’t want to know, I’m gonna let you go ‘Cause you fuck my mind from behind Come on hold me tight with all your might ‘Cause this will be the ride of your life You make me sweat, then you make me wet This craving I can’t let it go and you know You’ve got control of my rock’n’roll You promised that you’d catch me but I still fall Tell me how you see Tell me how you see it now Tell me how you see Tell me how you see it now I need a fix of your special mix ‘Cause I’m flying to the beat of your heart And you’re the lie with the alibi Yeah, your special brand will tear us apart Oh, tell me how you see it ‘Cause I can feel the tear down my eye My mouth is dry ‘cause you’re not the guy I dreamed and cried, I can’t believe (it)… what a lie Tell me how you see Tell me, tell me Tell me how you see it now

Once in a lifetime is every day Once in a lifetime got to find a way To follow the sublime for there’s no better time to grab onto your dreams before they die Once in a lifetime Every morning the sun will rise But every morning do you realize The sky is endless and your dreams are too The only limits are inside of you Every evening the sun will fall But any evening will you heed the call? Your choice is endless, what will you choose? Create a life in which your limits lose! Once in a lifetime is every day Once in a lifetime got to find a way To follow the sublime for there’s no better time to grab onto your dreams before they die Once in a lifetime is every day Once in a lifetime got to find a way To follow the sublime for there’s no better time to grab onto your dreams before they die Once in a lifetime Every morning the sun will rise But every morning do you realize The sky is endless and your dreams are too The only limits are inside of you Every evening the stars will rise And every ending is a compromise Love is endless and if it fades away it will return on a brighter day Once in a lifetime is every day Once in a lifetime got to find a way To follow the sublime for there’s no better time to grab onto your dreams before they die Once in a lifetime is every day Once in a lifetime got to find a way To follow the sublime for there’s no better time to grab onto your dreams before they die Once in a lifetime
