Why Carpediem


Carpediem
It means seize the day;
Try and enjoy life
The sky’s not that grey.

Easy for them to say
They have Don’t have it bad
They don’t know how you feel
And it drive you mad

They can seize the day
If they bloody want it
But in this day and age
The day ain’t worth my spit

Your life maybe be hell
And it turns you insane
Carpediem
A phrase for the mundane

So why should I Carpediem
Should I conform and live life for them
I take my dignity
That’s my Carpediem
