Life’s short, most too busy they’ll live it later
But a sunrise ain’t the same hooked up to a respirator
Un-plus the escalator, walk like you was made to
Not for peace of mind, but just to prove you ain’t afraid to
Even if you paid dues, even if you made news
No matter if you pray to the father, God or Jesus
Stay loose, & let the rythm unite us
Stay true, to them visions we have inside us
We might just learn that the tide does turn
You will find the sublime in due time, concern
Yourself with inner goals, not just at certain intervals
Progression as individuals is integral, but…
I know we’re all different
But really we’re all the same
It’s lame how division
Comes between brothers, stop the charade
I hate it how it’s mano e mano
Everything’s just a sport
But if I’ve learned anything it’s
Life’s too damn short

// Chorus //

Too damn short

So make the best of it,
cuz ‘for you get a chance to question it
your friends & fam are looking through
your last will & testament
Try not to waste ya time
Depressed at all the steps you missed,
Check ya wrist,
You already let two minutes & thirty seconds slip
Death is definite, Best to learn dat lesson quick
Get a grip, Realize that every breath’s a gift
Ya got a girl, fo sho man, caress your chick
Hey, you got a gang, go on reprezent your clique!
You gotta fight? Make sure that you connect the hits
Graf-writer? Here’s a can, tag the edifice
Your life’s done, your life’s done?
what does the contestant win?
