Torn as I watch, my life as a whole.
Leading a path that's rebroadcast.
Crumbling are my hopes.
Yearning for a vane, prosthetic side.
My thoughts shift without order.
My thoughts direct to what's real.
Looking back, I see signs of finding out what matters most.
But all that time, I was too concerned with building status.
When making life decisions, don't throw it away.
When making decisions.
And I know why.
What it means to be truly alive.
And I'm feeling that it's done,As my life had just begun.
All I'm hearing beyond is beautiful laughter.
Right Now, there is no before and no after.
