Are You For Real?

Do you see it coming
On the horizon
That’s the sunrise
That’s the new day
Every morning
No matter what
It always rises
Rises up
Celestial clockworks
Heaven watches
On every belt
Another notch is
Added on
To the collection
A new day dawns
New reflections

There’s a new day beyond that windowsill
Make of it what you will
Make it sweet or turn it sour
You will taste each and every hour
There is only the fate you make
It’s only everything at stake
It all starts with your attitude
And all depends on your gratitude
Are you thankful for the things you got
Or crying over what you have not
Do you value all you have
Before you end up on that grey slab
With no more tomorrows you awaiting
No more days anticipating
Make the most of the time you’re given
Always move always be driven

I know I know there are those times
Other people committing crimes
Against each other and against you
But do you really know what to do
When you been hit, when you been cheated
When you been knocked down and defeated
Beaten by men and institutions
Challenging your whole constitution
When it all just decides to go wrong
Heed my words and sing this song
Life is just test after test
All you can do is your best
Don’t give up and don’t surrender
Be for real be no pretender
Pick it right up get back in the game
When it happens again just do the same

Are you for real
Or are you kidding
Is this a game
Or the real thing
Are you an actor
On a stage
Are you just playing
At acting your age
