about

Life makes you old faster than you anticipate, this song is about that.

lyrics

Nowhere to go
Nothing to say
Label on your toe
On a frigorific tray

For you there will be
No more regrets
But there'll be plenty
For those who are left

Be sure to carry out everything you wanna do
Every single little thing that truly matters to you
You'll never be able to know when your time will be
So even if you're young, death is something you should foresee

It will be too late when you're dead
too late when you're dead
too late when you're dead

Go see the world
If that is your thing
Build a flying saucer
or a pretend time machine

Go meet people
Write a novel
A poem, a rondeau
A guitar solo

###SOLO###

plant a tree
cross a sea
be a daddy
or a mommy

wear a hat
get a cat
grow a stache
give some cash

Play a game
Have no shame
Be a kid
get married

build a house
give advice
take your time
learn to sign

Be yourself
Or someone else
Choose a path
Take a bath

Bake a cake
Take a break

Enjoy rain
fly a plane
go to spain
use your brain

Be insane
start again

let people know
how you feel about them
express your love
before you're above

Actually, do what you want
but enjoy every moment
cause life can be painfully short

Be sure to carry out everything you wanna do
Every single little thing that truly matters to you
You'll never be able to know when your time will be
So even if you're young, death is something you should foresee

It will be too late when you're dead
too late when you're dead
too late when you're dead
