Shelter – Time's Ticking Away lyrics

We gave into our passions but were never satisfied
And all the public pressure made us only live a lie
Gave into scripting persons who never wished our best
How much will we give in till we become what we detest ?
So I've gotta say: time's ticking away
I say let's take success in our hands
Let's start taking command
All our short term pleasure is our driving force in life
Which leads us to more suffering, tragedy and vice
Everyone's a victim, only few are safe
So we must take control before we become total slaves
Let's start taking command of life
We're living this life like we watch tv, just see
I can't let this world react upon me, not me
Grab a hold of opportunity at any cost
