Hourglass

It’s been said that you can never step into the same river 
for the river’s always changing with the current 
but then again it’s been said that you should never say never 
because nothing never ever lasts forever 
Well either way I’m determined to nourish the thirst inside 
yearning to find fulfillment is an eternal burden
constantly burning and I’ve learned that you can put out the fire for a while  
yet still the urgent hunger always re-emerges to the surface  
level flat boil kettle black evaporate to gas  
state of self preservation after mass destructs 
into the many and the one, said and done 
now it’s time for the hunter to go and make another run 
gather up enough stuff & supplies for the tribe to survive 
and stay alive until the time comes for us to thrive again 
ride the waves of the wind through the days til the end 
making sure you always appreciate what you get 
cuz it’s so easy to lose yourself among all these hopeless wants 
that we’ve forgot to cherish getting what we need 
see life is short before you know it, it’s gone 
so best believe you better cherish everything you receive 
find a balance between the things you have and the things you don’t 
cuz no matter what this glass will never be full 
and the fact remains still that there’s one thing you can’t change 
the hourglass is always only up to halfway 

Life is like a hole that everyday we wish to fill 
and it’s never quite full until you’re buried with a will 
Life is like a hole that everyday we wish to fill 
and it’s never quite full until you’re buried with a bill  
Life is like a hole that everyday we wish to fill 
and it’s never quite full until you’re buried in a hill 
Life is like a hole that everyday we wish to fill 
and it’s never quite full until you’re buried........ 

Feeling like a schizophrenic living in the 5th dimension
seeing all the possibilities but can't find my inner essence
wondering if i get to choose or if all of this is destined
leaning toward the latter cuz nothing is independent
It's all connected....so I'm just following the plan
just another grain in this bottle full of sand
solid at one end but hollow at the other half
that's why they call it fatal cuz tomorrow never lasts
seems the glass is always cleaner on the other side
trying to learn to be content with the one on mine
cuz i'm tired of comparing what could be and what is
I take the half as full enough as just live
See every moment that I sit awake is a constant give and take 
Sick of waiting for the full course so I settle for a taste 
keeping no expectations that way i ain't so disappointed 
when nothing exciting happens that way the pain can be avoided 
looking towards the grass that’s seeming greener on the other side 
trying to learn to be content with the one on mine 
cuz i’m tired of comparing what could be and what is 
i take the half as full enough and just live 
the funny thing is that when i look at what’s next 
sometimes i feel like that’s really as good as it get
