about

This song's about living life to the fullest.

lyrics

holding on to the past like to pin on a hand grenade
giving each moment love like a serenade
these challenges and obstacles that block the road from view
i clear my thoughts and think only of the truth

and you with your way you see the world i see its beautiful
and you give me optimism hope in spite of cataclysm

if you got a funny feeling or a story to tell
ignore the callings of the devils in your own little hell
we ain't got time to lose we got a battle to win
let your heart open up and revolution begin
if you're feeling that you don't know what the world's all about
don't worry mate just take a guess and then just work it all out
we ain't got time to live if we got time to die
remove the weight from your back and throw it up to the sky

rewrite each song as if it were a eulogy
and sing along as if it were just you and me
love for your fellows proclaimed across this desert land
that's how i see the world the future is at hand

and you with your way you see the world i see its beautiful
and you give me optimism hope in spite of cataclysm

if you got a funny feeling or a story to tell
ignore the callings of the devils in your own little hell
we ain't got time to lose we got a battle to win
let your heart open up and revolution begin
if you're feeling that you don't know what the world's all about
don't worry mate just take a guess and then just work it all out
we ain't got time to live if we got time to die
remove the weight from your back and throw it up to the sky

i see the wax of a brighter world burning tonight
the smell of change in the air and i'm feeling alright
does anybody know how far we're going to go
either way i feel fine

if you got a funny feeling or a story to tell
ignore the callings of the devils in your own little hell
we ain't got time to lose we got a battle to win
let your heart open up and revolution begin
if you're feeling that you don't know what the world's all about
don't worry mate just take a guess and then just work it all out
we ain't got time to live if we got time to die
remove the weight from your back and throw it up to the sky
