  • Lyrics:   A grain of sand in an hour glass, time slips by us each day. So make the most of life or let it pass. Winter follows Fall either way. And time will devour you eventually, but you will never know quite when. So grab a hold before you drift to sea. Today’s a great time to begin. Honestly…you will never be — what you’re meant to be. Honestly…you will never be, but what you’re meant to be. As the seasons change so do we, but that’s no need for distress. ‘Cause as a seed will become a tree, so can change bring true progress. Honestly…you will never be, but what you’re meant to be. Honestly…you will never be, but what you wanna’ be. Fuck fate. Fuck destiny, and all this banality. Get lost in reverie, ‘cause in this life there’s no guarantee. Life is short but different everyday. You can live in awe or in strife. But while you work don’t forget to play, and really live this life. Honestly…you will never be, but what you’re meant to be. Honestly…you will fall like poetry. Honestly…you’ll figure it out eventually. But honestly…that’s more than good enough for me.
