Eat, Drink And Be Merry


While we’re busy makin’ plans, the world is spinnin’ by,
we’re all chasin’ golden rainbows, no one’s ever satisfied.
With the benefit of hindsight, we can clearly see our past,
though we’re doomed to make mistakes, our choices were all that we had.
Pesky detours and diversions, were in fact unique milestones,
we’d have surely stayed there longer, if only we’d have known.
But we always kept on moving, believed the journey was the means,
those happy souls who shaped our lives, are fading memories in dreams.

I raise my glass to the future, raise my glass to the past,
with a tear in my eye and a reminiscing laugh.
Let us/I’m gonna

Eat. Drink and be merry.
Enjoy each moment I/we have left.
Eat. Drink and be merry.
Live for the present until my/our dying breath.

There’s no machine to turn the clock back or to halt old man time,
when we to start to fuck the past up we commit the most heinous crime.
For our memories of our loved ones, no matter how jaded, worn and grey,
are the lattice in the present, our foundation for each day.

PRE-CHORUS

CHORUS

To my friends and my loved ones,
to my enemies and death!
To the brave souls who endured me,
to the ones I never met.
