Everybody Dies Everyday

Everybody dies everyday

When you wake up each day, not knowing why you do,

When you look at the mirror and see that it's not you,

When you believe in words that are rather untrue

And you build up people who eventually break you.


Everybody dies everyday

When you keep comparing yourself and sulk on one corner,

When you convince yourself, things will never get any better,

When you pity yourself too much, while you give others praise

And you push others far but you're still stuck on the same phase.


Everybody dies everyday

When you give up your triumphs and give in to the tests,

When you trade anniversaries to arguments,

When you let love leave you scarred and you're filled only with hate

And you let pride overrule you, then regret when everything's too late. 


Everybody dies everyday

When you watch starving children stare at your full plate,

When you refuse to right the wrongs and make every mistake,

When you take for granted, everything you should value

And you trash the only planet that took good care of you.


Everybody dies everyday

Because we abandon more than we appreciate,

Because we only care for ourselves and for the people that we relate. 

So we choose to turn a blind eye on things that deserve more than just a peek.

We chose to pursue our greed and abuse the meek.


Everybody dies everyday 

Because we let our hearts speak, 

Too loud that we don't hear the hearts of others,

Too loud that we forget we've got sisters and brothers,

Too loud that we forget their lives also matter.  


Eveybody dies everyday

The lies become lessons.

And with every death, we are born anew.

But many are called, chosen are few. 


Everybody dies everyday

But only those who choose to make the most of everyday, 

Only those who refuse to be blind and close their eyes to pray, 

Only those who choose to walk in the right way, 

Don't die in vain like fallen warriors who've gone astray.  


Everybody dies everyday. 

But you my friend, will rise up today.
