The world we live in is a frenzied one. Moving ever so fast and only quickening its pace as time flies by, everything must happen at the snap of a finger; pronto.. We all go about our lives in this chaotic space, hungry for time and so caught up in it all that I sometimes feel we forget to experience things for what they really are, to truly live our lives rather than just plough through them in record time.
Perhaps we should all take a moment and just be? Maybe even groove a little...
ENGLISH LYRICS (Translation):
Consciousness flows like the snow melts
Rushed by the tempo of the city, I'm puzzled
As the pure white slowly becomes tainted,
Each time the sun goes down, bitter anxiety bubbles up
It's because I'm tired of dragging myself around
Searching for a sense of satisfaction
December, no longer the only hectic season
All we do is run around every day and night - our hearts are empty
I can tell so easily how my humanity has worn thin
Too afraid to be left behind that it doesn't matter if we're being dragged along
Let's all fall together
Today the people who look both ways are old fashioned
Glued to what we hold in our hands, we walk straight into waves of cars
At the rate we're going, it seems like we'll be destroyed before we get to the other side
But the pace doesn't drop, who knows where we're headed...?
Let's stop this craziness
Stand still, and regain yourself
Feel yourself, be alive
