The Way of Life

can you say you know more than you knew when you were young

do you live with your regrets for the things that you have done

and can you say you wouldn't risk it all again

yeah I suppose that this is the way of life

it keeps you awake as you lie beneath the knife

as you dream of things red and unreal

you awake to a stomach full of steel

but you'll know your last breath

and this one is not that

so dark come as it will

the clock will push on even still

you fall asleep at your desk with bloodshot eyes

contemplate what next to sacrifice

you've fought your way on up with skin and bone

swore you would be happy if you could just be alone

yeah I suppose that this is the way of life

you work until you are checking your pulse twice

monkey suits and working boots are dragging through the mud

as you crawl through your darkened hall

not doing or breathing much

well you'll know your last breath

and this one is not that

so dark come as it will

the clock will push on even still
