carpe diem lyrics – august burns red

“carpe diem”

i’ve thrown away all of my outside distractions.
i’m diving headfirst to chase a dream that i won’t let go.

it’s worthless – a waste of time. this goal is out of reach. you better fall back in line.

this is what i need. you are what i need.
i need motivation to prove you wrong, and i will prove you wrong.

what makes you think that you are different?
how can you chase these dreams? they’ve become a ch*r*.

i know i’m close. i’m almost there.
just a little more, and i will prevail through what you call “ignorance”. i will prevail.

now i’ve chased this dream to do what i love, and i wouldn’t trade it for a thing.
now i’ve chased this dream and i made it out alive. i wouldn’t trade it for a thing.
i threw away what naysayers say, and started on a race that i had to win for myself.

and you proved me wrong, you proved me wrong.

all i’ve learned is teaching me more. all i know is driving me on.

all i’ve learned is teaching me more. all i know is driving me on.
