The Human Race

They tell you to forget the past.

Live for the future

Try to live fast

Try not to stop to watch time pass.

Don't think about sadness or you'll surely place last



They tell you to move forward

Put your sail at full mast

Don't worry about shadows your lost loves will cast



But when you finally find your mind starting to unwind.

You may be placing first, but your pace makes you feel worse

You'll finally take the time to stop before the finish line

In an attempt to rewind what you've left behind.

At that moment you will see what happened to what you used to be

You'll see a reflection of your former face and realize you don't need to win the human race.
