Proclaiming Cadence – The Lifetouch lyrics

The days burn away like sparklers on the 4th of July.
And I flat out refuse to grow up and be used like you.

My dreams pass me by and the time with a sigh it keeps burning, burning away.
My heart beat speeds up and gets quicker and stronger and faster and faster and faster until...

Everything stops...

Everything stops now.
Can't we go back now?
At least slow down now?
Just slow down a bit...

Say so long.
Plant your lips in the past, this bliss simply can't last.
The temperatures rising and summer is calling so don't be surprised when it's time...

To step up, and speak up.
And they'll say sit down, and shut up.
And then we'll step out, and scream out...

Breathe like you're twelve leagues under water.
Savor each breath, treat it like a ghost.
Keep it up darling 'cause today's a day worth livin'.
Don't blow it off with a shrug; just like the undertow's tug we're sinkin'... We're sinkin'.
