THE LIFE YOU WANNA LIVE ?
Lyrics: √ćthaka



I only ask of y'all
what I ask of myself.............

ARE YOU DOIN' IN LIFE -- WHAT YOU WAS MEANT TO ?
ARE YOU DOIN' IN LIFE -- WHAT YOU WAS SENT TO ?
ARE YOU LEADIN' THE LIFE THAT YOU WANNA LIVE ?
ARE YOU LIVIN' YOUR LIFE IN A WAY TO WIN ?

ARE YOU DOIN' IN LIFE -- WHAT YOU WAS MEANT TO ?
ARE YOU DOIN' IN LIFE -- WHAT YOU WAS SENT TO ?
ARE YOU LEADIN' THE LIFE THAT YOU WANNA LIVE ?
ARE YOU LIVIN' YOUR LIFE IN A WAY TO WIN ?

Here and now -- limited hours on earth
Make the most of yours -- recognize time's worth
Formulate somethin' solid just for you...
BEFORE this crazy ball splits in two

ARE YOU DOIN' IN LIFE -- WHAT YOU WAS MEANT TO ?
ARE YOU DOIN' IN LIFE -- WHAT YOU WAS SENT TO ?
ARE YOU LEADIN' THE LIFE THAT YOU WANNA YOU LIVE ?
ARE YOU LIVIN' YOUR LIFE IN A WAY TO WIN ?

Do you accomplish the things you set out to do ?
Did you realize the dreams you had when you were twenty-two ?

Do you keep responsibility -- MINORITY ?
Do you keep freedom n liberty - PRIORITY ?

Do you get back on your feet when you take a fall ?
Do you stand up proud ? Do you stand up tall ?
Did ya end up with the girl you lost sleep over ?
Or did ya get out of bed with a deadly hangover ?

Searchin' affection in all the wrong places
Blowin' all your dough on store-bought embraces

Making the same mistake a million times forever
Loose ground daily - forgettin' your endeavors

Always tripping over yourself when you need to glide
Never seeming to find your stride in this lifetime

Never in the right place at the right time
Never finding yourself the slightest peace of mind

Falling into depths with no hope of recovery
Searching desperately for some kind of discovery

But gotta drag yourself up -- up out of bed
N gotta scrape out your skull -- clear out your head

And Gotta turn shit around - like you know you can
Only YOU got the power and the right to demand

A life of pride -- one to call your own
Where you're YOUR own ruler -- the Man on the throne

ARE YOU DOIN' IN LIFE -- WHAT YOU WAS MEANT TO ?
ARE YOU DOIN' IN LIFE -- WHAT YOU WAS SENT TO ?
ARE YOU LEADIN' THE LIFE THAT YOU WANNA LIVE ?
ARE YOU LIVIN' YOUR LIFE IN A WAY TO WIN ?

ARE YOU DOIN' IN LIFE -- WHAT YOU WAS MEANT TO ?
ARE YOU DOIN' IN LIFE -- WHAT YOU WAS SENT TO ?
ARE YOU LEADIN' THE LIFE THAT YOU WANNA LIVE ?
ARE YOU LIVIN' YOUR LIFE IN A WAY TO WIN ?

Here and now -- limited hours on earth
Make the most of yours -- recognize time's worth
Formulate somethin' solid just for you...
BEFORE this crazy ball splits in two

ARE YOU DOIN' IN LIFE -- WHAT YOU WAS MEANT TO ?
ARE YOU DOIN' IN LIFE -- WHAT YOU WAS SENT TO ?
ARE YOU LEADIN' THE LIFE THAT YOU WANNA LIVE ?
ARE YOU LIVIN' YOUR LIFE IN A WAY TO WIN ?

ARE YOU DOIN' IN LIFE -- WHAT YOU WAS MEANT TO ?
ARE YOU DOIN' IN LIFE -- WHAT YOU WAS SENT TO ?
ARE YOU LEADIN' THE LIFE THAT YOU WANNA LIVE ?
ARE YOU LIVIN' YOUR LIFE IN A WAY TO WIN ?

ARE YOU DOIN' IN LIFE -- WHAT YOU WAS MEANT TO ?
ARE YOU DOIN' IN LIFE -- WHAT YOU WAS SENT TO ?
ARE YOU LEADIN' THE LIFE THAT YOU WANNA LIVE ?
ARE YOU LIVIN' YOUR LIFE IN A WAY TO WIN ?
