TIME IS RUNNING OUT

I didn't forget what this weekend symbolized and who was honored for their courage and valiancy. If you follow me on Instagram I posted a few pictures that served as reminders to remember the fallen. But I was far from feeling courageous in the mediocre life I live. Today, as my heart filled with gratitude for those who served our country, I forced myself to live and take advantage of the freedom that the fallen sacrificed their lives for. I don't know why but I've been telling those closest to me that I feel like I don't have much time left. The feeling is palpable especially when I work in a job that drains me, when I am surrounded by petty people and nitpickers, and when I place my happiness in the hands of others. I know that time is fleeting and it doesn't wait for those who squander it. 


I have a Muse playlist that contains all of their albums. Today, for the first time in years, I drove my car with the top down and programmed this song on repeat mode. It was my weekend anthem. 





I think I'm drowning
asphyxiated
I wanna break this spell
that you've created

you're something beautiful
a contradiction
I wanna play the game
I want the friction

you will be the death of me
you will be the death of me


bury it
I won't let you bury it
I won't let you smother it
I won't let you murder it

our time is running out
our time is running out
you can't push it underground
you can't stop it screaming out

I wanted freedom
bound and restricted
I tried to give you up
but I'm addicted

now that you know I'm trapped sense of elation
you'd never dream of
breaking this fixation

you will squeeze the life out of me

bury it
I won't let you bury it
I won't let you smother it
I won't let you murder it

our time is running out
our time is running out
you can't push it underground
you can't stop it screaming out
how did it come to this?
ooooohh

you will suck the life out of me

bury it
I won't let you bury it
I won't let you smother it
I won't let you murder it

our time is running out
our time is running out
you can't push it underground
you can't stop it screaming out
How did it come to this?
ooooohh
