Awakening

lyrics

I see where I am
I’ve come to realize I'm living in a constant rush hour

Priorities seem so misplaced
Inherent hunger for significance

Calligraphy engraved deep inside
Empty pursuits dominate time
Slaves to pleasure only result in hollow lives!

It's so easy to overlook this!



If this life is not the end,
What happens when the temporary is as far as our sight extends? 



I've only got one life to live
Awaken me and let's make this count!
I don't wanna reach the end of my days
Building with straw when it could have been gold

I've carried these scales on my eyes,
Leaving me lost in the wrong direction

Lift the veil, mend the rift
These shackles need to be broken
Temporary perspective has been held for far too long

If this life is not the end
Then we have gotta get this right
This isn't a game,
 where you get a second try
Where is my heart? 
Where is my treasure?

What is the purpose of my endeavours?
Is my hope secure or will it fade to rust?

Oh God, I've got to make this count!



I've only got one life to live
Awaken me and let's make this count!

I don't wanna reach the end of my days

Building with straw when it could have been gold
