I remember a time
My frail, virgin mind
Watched the crimson sunrise
Imagined what it might find

Life was filled with wonder
I felt the warm wind blow
I must explore the boundaries
Transcend the depth of winter's snow

Innocence caressing me
I never felt so young before
There was so much life in me
Still I longed to search for more

But those days are gone now
Changed like a leaf on a tree
Blown away forever
Into the cool autumn breeze

The snow has now fallen
And my sun's not so bright
I struggle to hold on
With the last of my might

In my den of inequity
Viciousness and subtlety
Struggle to ease the pain
Struggle to find the sane

Ignorance surrounding me
I've never been so filled with fear
All my life's been drained from me
The end is drawing near

Carpe diem, seize the day

I'll always remember
The chill of November
The news of the fall
The sounds in the hall
The clock on the wall ticking away

"Seize the day", I heard him say
Life will not always be this way
Look around, hear the sounds
Cherish your life while you're still around

Gather ye rosebuds while ye may
Old time is still a-flying
And this same flower that smiles today
Tomorrow will be dying

We can learn from the past
But those days are gone
We can hope for the future
But there may not be one

The words stuck in my mind
Alive from what I've learned
I have to seize the day
To home I returned

Preparing for her flight
I held with all my might
Fearing my deepest fright
She walked into the night

She turned for one last look
She looked me in the eye
I said, "I love you, goodbye"

{It's the most awful thing you'll ever hear
If you're lying to me
Oh, you dearly love her
Just have to leave all our lives
Seize the day
Something happened
Gather ye rosebuds while ye may
She was killed}

So far or so it seems
All is lost with nothing fulfilled
Off the pages and a TV screen
Another world where nothing's true

Tripping through the life fantastic
Lose a step and never get up
Left alone with a cold blank stare
I feel like giving up

I was blinded by a paradise
Utopia high in the sky
A dream that only drowned me
Deep in sorrow, wondering why

Oh come, let us adore him
Abuse and then ignore him
No matter what, don't let him be
Let's feed upon his misery
Then string him up for all the world to see

I'm sick of all you hypocrites
Holding me at bay
And I don't need your sympathy
To get me through the day

Seasons change and so can I
Hold on boy, no time to cry
Untie these strings, I'm climbing down
I won't let them push me away

Oh come, let us adore him
Abuse and then ignore him
No matter what, don't let him be
Let's feed upon his misery
Now it's time for them to deal with me

I'm much wiser now
A lifetime of memories
Run through my head
They taught me how
For better or worse, alive or dead
I realize there's no turning back
Life goes on the offbeaten track

I sit down with my son
Set to see the crimson sunset
(Gather ye rosebuds while ye may)
Many years have come and gone
I've lived my life, but now must move on
(Gather ye rosebuds while ye may)

He is my only one
Now that my time has come
Now that my life is done
We look into the sun
Seize the day and don't you cry
Now it's time to say goodbye
Even though I'll be gone
I will live on, live on
