Why do I keep it all away from me
There must be something there subconsciously
Keeping my thoughts underneath
So I try to pull the past into a future tense
But to leave this world with no suspense
You first have to open your teeth

Only one life, live so full
Once again we ride the bull
Even though it bucks like hell
We ride it oh so well
Couldn’t stop me if you tried
No matter who else has lied
In these thoughts I confide

When does it get to where it needs to be
When everything seems to just come free
All that’s missing is time
Where’ve you been?
I’ve been waiting here so patiently
Now its becoming plain to see
I’ve got to go take what’s mine

One thing in life I’ve learned
Is that you’ll always get burned
All that matters is how you deal
What you think not how you feel
When all is said and done
I say fuck it, have some fun
Wild ride has just begun
