Time
It's eating me alive
Unable to rewind
Sink deeper while I'm climbing
Never to arrive

I gave you everything
But still you need to feed
And underneath it all I'm screaming out

Just carry on
Just prove me wrong
I know that I'm dying right now
And it seems that I'm so far gone
But not for long
I'll just be strong and keep knowing
That now I will overtake you

Just one that you can use
One risk but you can't lose
Play the victim while abusing
Anyone you choose

Painful consequence
Of standing on your lies
I'm barely breathing but
I'm screaming out

Just carry on
Just prove me wrong
I know that I'm dying right now
And it seems that I'm so far gone
But not for long
I'll just be strong and keep knowing
That now I will overtake you

I know that I'm dying right now
And it seems that I'm so far gone
(Overtake you)
I'll just be strong and keep knowing
That now I will overtake

You'll come to get me, but
You'll end up dead
You'll come to get me, but
You'll end up dead
You'll come to get me, but
You'll end up dead
You'll come to get me, but
You'll end up dead

Just carry on
Just prove me wrong
I know that I'm dying right now
And it seems that I'm so far gone
But not for long
I'll just be strong and keep knowing
That now I will overtake you

You'll come to get me, but
You'll end up dead
You'll come to get me, but
You'll end up dead
(Overtake you)
You'll come to get me, but
You'll end up dead
(Overtake you, overtake you)
You'll come to get me
(Overtake you)
You'll come to get me

    I see it as a sort of literal metaphor, but something that can happen. For example, for as long as i can remember i was ignored by my family and became nothing but a shadow of my older brother, who has been taking everything, but it isn't enough. Now, that i'm getting older, i don't care about attention anymore, but have surpassed my brother after 15 in his shadow.
