I'm a victim of time
It consumes me
Puts limits in my life
Stops me from jumping the gun
and makes me think twice

Pushing the speed limit
cause I'm ready to go get it
Put the past behind
I'm stuck in the present,
with the future in my mind cause of time

It asks me, "Who's your daddy?"
It slaps me in the face when it sees me slacking

I get up and keep moving
cause when you sit still, it's time that you're losing

Do what you need to do to get what you want out of life
When things get hard, keep running the race
Overcome the obstacles that get in your way

When you choose to give up,
time is still ticking,
The Earth will keep spinning,
and you never know when it'll be your last day
