Perfect Attendance – Present Tense lyrics

What things today make their way to the top and
What is remembered and what's been forgotten
Where has it all been and where will it soon go
How will we ever find out if nobody wants to know

Have we made our mark
Will we be content
When we're looking back on how our lives were spent
The time we have is precious
What we have is what we get
It's up to us to make a lasting use of it

Understanding that we could build for hours
On an unstable and fragile tower
Helps us to see that our time must be used well
When our clock runs out will we have any stories to tell

How would it be if refills weren't free
I see a need
And it won't be filled by sitting down
