lyrics

AS I WAS WATCHING ON THE FLATSCREEN
WHILE FLOODS OF WATER STOLE THE TOWNS
PEOPLE SWALLOWED UP BY FORCES
IN HORROR DREAMS IN SECONDS DIED
MY LENSE OF COMFORT JUST GOT SMALLER
I MISSED THE MEANING BY A MILE
THE PANORAMA DOSEN’T HIDE NEED
WITH A PSUNAMI STREAMING LIVE

SOME PEOPLE ONLY GET A FEW DAYS
OTHERS EPIC NOVEL LIVES
THE TEST OF TIME NOW HAS NEW MEANING
WHAT HAVE I DONE WITH ALL OF MINE?

I THINK OF STRANDED PEOPLE STARVING
WHILE BUYING GROCERIES AT THE STORE
AND ALL THIS COMFORT I’VE BEEN HOARDING WHILE
MY BROTHER BEGS, MY SISTER WHORES
I’VE BEEN A FOOL IN CALCULATING
TO THINK I’M OWED A BETTER LIFE
TO PURGE THIS GLUTTONY OF COMFORT
WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO REALIZE?

IF THESE WORDS IN RED ARE REAL
THEN HE HAS NO HANDS BUT MINE
MY RESPONSE TO THIS WORLD
COULD THEN BE A LIVING SACRIFICE…
IS MY COMFORT WHERE
I DRAW THE LINE?

SOME PEOPLE ONLY GET A FEW DAYS
OTHERS EPIC NOVEL LIVES
THE TEST OF TIME NOW HAS NEW MEANING
WHAT HAVE I DONE WITH ALL OF MINE?

AND SO ANOTHER GOES ASUNDER
HOPING HEAVEN’S NET WILL CATCH
IT’S NOT THE DYING THAT I PONDER
MY QUESTION IS WHY I AM I LEFT?

SOME PEOPLE ONLY GET A FEW DAYS
OTHERS EPIC NOVEL LIVES
THE TEST OF TIME NOW HAS NEW MEANING
WHAT HAVE I DONE WITH ALL OF MINE?
WHAT WILL I DO WITH ALL OF MY TIME?
WITH ALL OF MY TIME?
