"and all you f***ers go beep beep beep in cheap,plastic cars. If It's to dumb to see or say you'll still sing it, and I'll just cue the applause" - Marilyn Manson


Every minute of every day,
We try desperately to find our way.
We that we've
Molded the future like clay.
But to all of those
I have this to say.

You don't know where you're headed,
It could all end any minute.
You're life will only give back what you put in it.

And you've got to do your best to win it.

It doesn't matter what you look like
It's just a shell until you die.
That's when the real soul inside
comes alive.

Don't become part of the lie.
Let you're insecurities fly into the sky
let them fly into the sky.
Don't let them get to you or you'll never get by
You'll never get by.
Don't let them ruin your life
Ruin your life.

We think that
We've molded the future like clay.
But to all of those
I have this to say.

You don't know where you're headed.
It could all end any minute.
You're life will give back what you put in it.
And you've got to do your best to win it.

I've felt the pain
Of what all the haters say
What the haters say.
But i stand before you today
Before you today.
To tell you they don't mean a f*** anyway.
Don't mean a f*** anyway.

Every minute of every day
We try desperately to find our way.
We think that we've Molded the future like clay

But to all of those I have this to say.
This to say



You don't know where you're headed,
It could all end any minute.
Life only gives back what you put in it.
What you put in it.
And you've got to do your best and win it.

Nothing's set in stone.
Nothing.
If you don't like where you're at
Where you're at.
You gotta change the tone.
Change the tone.
You have to do it for yourself.
Do it for yourself.
But you are never alone
Never ever alone.
You have to do it for yourself.
But you are never alone.
You are never alone.

You don't know where you're headed.
It could all end any minute.
Live only gives back what you put in it.
And you gotta do your best and win it.

You have to do it for yourself.
Do it for yourself.
But you are never alone
Never ever alone.
You have to do it for yourself.
But you are never alone.
You are never ever alone.


The author's comments:
I wrote this in Algebra II. Somewhat inspired by all of the songs about self-love, acceptance, etc. This is basically me saying that nobody really knows when this crazy thing we call life will end, so While you're here you have to love and accept yourself, as well as everyone around you.
