"We're All Dead" lyrics


"We're All Dead"

We're all dead!
Excuses and shaking heads
can't put stop to it
constantly approaching nothing left
Our reflection, gods and guns;
hollow distractions
life begins when trust is placed in death

So every day's a brand new chance to
stop throwing our lives away
Idle disconnect won't carry us through
'cause it's steady progress or swift decay

The rest of time starts today
I've spent so many hours fighting
myself over how I'll die
So many sleepless nights denying
it's over when we close our eyes
I need to make the most of my time
it's over when we close our eyes
Every day we chase our dreams
until they become reality
Every day we feed our dreams
to give ourselves something to believe
So get up, it starts today

[This song is the introduction to this record. I wouldn't call this a concept
record, but all the songs loosely circle around the idea that at some
point every one of us will die, and when that happens, that's it.
There is no life after death. The notion that there is an afterlife,
among many other things ("our reflection, gods and guns"), serves as a
distraction to keep us from pursuing our true desires. This can be
either incredibly depressing and cause us to feel helpless and wander
through a life devoid of meaning, or it can enlighten us and keep us
motivated. For us in WATU, it serves as kick in the ass to follow our
dreams and strive to be the best we can at what we do. Our reason to
live is life itself.]
