Memento Mori: the most important thing in the world
One day you'll look up at the ceiling above If you're lucky you'll be surrounded by the ones that you love when The lights in your eyes fade and life flashes by One day you're going to die One day you'll sleep and you'll never wake again Heaven, hell, Nirvana, nothing, no-one knows how it ends Rest in peace or pieces and won't even know why One day you're going to die Read your horoscopes, your palms and tarot cards But either way your destination ain't very far You could drown, or choke, or burn, or be hit by a car What doesn't kill you makes you stronger But something will eventually One day you'll look back at the life that you led, No more future left to fear that you'll have the past to regret But your worries will be over if you truly realize One day you're going to die Take it away, hands In the fabric of time, and in the vastness of space A billion amounts to nothing in infinity's face At most a couple generations will remember the ways in which Your life never mattered So, who cares if it's a waste Well, one day you'll be not even a faint memory, no At most a ghost or falling leaf from your family tree Your legacy's not yours to see. Nor is your eulogy And you'll never know what it all means But you'll be at peace before you sleep if you just keep this in mind That everything and everyone goes with the passage of time So whether it's cancer, murder, or suicide One day you're going to die No need to fear 'cause when it's here you won't be alive Try not to think about it One day you're going to die And there's probably nothing after One day you're going to die So if you only have one chance you oughta try your best to live as you like One day you're going to die
