“I never enjoy anything.
I'm always waiting for whatever's next.
I think everyone's like that...
living life in fast forward
never stopping to enjoy the moment
too busy turn to rush through everything
so we can get on what we're really supposed to be doing with our lives.
I get these flashes of clarity, brilliant clarity,
where, for a second I stop and I think,
wait, this is it, this is my life.
I better slow down and enjoy it
because one day we're all gonna end up in the ground
and that will be it, we'll be gone.
That's why I think we should flack.”
