Porcelain and alabaster decaying ever faster
Unaware of imminent disaster - open up your eyes

As you ruminate the hopeless sands of time
Did you wander out your days lost and resigned
Or recreate the universals in your mind?

Everybody is a bastard
My world is like plaster
Crumbling apart from pressure by the blaster, waiting for a sign

And the momentary pleasures take their turn
As a wistful boy runs out of things to learn
The episodes of yore are never to return

Scare up some hope - you're gonna need it just to cope
You are the decision, numbers don't lie
When you bite the dust, was it for purpose or for trust?
You'll never relive it; think before you die
Yeah, think, think before you die

Deficit and deprivation in the wake of desperation
Rewrite the morals, rectify the nation
Now may be your time

As you ruminate the hopeless sands of time
Do you wonder how your life has been defined?
You know eternity can't ever change your mind
You know eternity can't ever change your mind

So think, think before you die
Whoa, think, think before you die
