rhythm of life

Originally taken from the album Natural Freak, 2003CE

each step eats the future up
as we walk along the ledge
each heartbeat is the countdown
to the day we reach the edge
distracted by the journey
we never think about the end

& the rhythm of life is coiled inside my head
won't stop until I'm dead

the fairy tale afflicts us
every time & every place
& searching for the perfect love
we quicken up our pace
just to find we've missed our only chance
to really change the world
