Lyrics

I don't have time to play
I got no time to spare
I'm only here for a little while
Until I'm up in the air

I don't have time to think
I got no time to shrink
I gotta do something real meaningful
Don't wanna work out the kinks

I'm just withering away
As I speak right now
I'm just falling apart
As I break on down
I don't have that sense of security
Of a Christian soul
This is the one little life I've got
So it better be whole

I can't deal with today
It doesn't feel like my dream
It's just the same old boring story
Of every other species

I just work, fuck, play when I can
And die a little every day
This isn't how I want it to be in the end
This isn't how I'm gonna stay

I'm just withering away
As I speak right now
I'm just falling apart
As I break on down
I don't have that sense of security
Of a Buddhist soul
This is the one little life I've got
So it better be whole

I wasn't born to be tried and true
Wasn't born to be just like you
I wasn't made to stand in line
Wasn't made to die inside

(Throwing away your humanity)
(Push it all down just to be a machine)
(Hiding away creativity)
(Push it all down just to be a machine)

I won't let the world make me who I am.
