Countdown

Dear friend, you can save your struggle
I've never believed in all that much, I'm afraid
I've grown away from the authoritarian people
I've got it from my dad, let me explain it this way
He told me voting doesn't help
'Cause none of those people can help you when it comes to it
And whenever he helped me with my homework at home
He made me think for myself and not just read through the texts
I think those words helped me
Grew up to believe that we were the salt of Earth
Couldn't sit still like a loyal dog
And believe in everything school taught me
Why were we supposed to think another way
When it's about the stuff you don't see?
Don't get any false ideas
I believe in something, I just don't know what it is
So many people tell me
"Life's a bitch and then you die"
I think that's the easy path
'Cause then none of the rules have to matter to you
I don't think it's a fat bitch
I think it's a countdown
To something else; a new beginning and introduction
 
I'm not saying that I know the way
It's important that you walk your own
What you give out will come back at you
The day when you suddenly have to pay up
 
I don't think it's a fat bitch
I think it's a countdown
I don't think it's a fat bitch
I think it's a countdown
I don't think it's a fat bitch
I think it's a countdown
I don't think it's a fat bitch
I think it's a countdown
 
If there's one thing I can say without blinking
It's that power makes people inflamed
There probably are no institutions
Which aren't abused by certain people
So I suppose it's crystal clear
That I can't take their word for it
Folding my hands, trying to create
Some kind of connection to make this game of solitaire add up
Do I call you God? Do I call you father?
If you're a woman, perhaps Goddess would be more appropriate
But dear person behind behind the gates of Heaven
I know I don't live as I ought to
I don't care what others believe
I believe in you, but not the words of priests
'Cause humans are power abusers
And your world is scarily vast
You saved my friend although the doctors said
He should have died from lying there for a day
So I believe there's a purpose behind
The steps you want
Me to actually take
People in this world are shady
Perhaps you made me depressed to keep me humble
Call me dumb, 'cause it's probably a gamble
I believe there's a reason for everything
 
I'm not saying that I know the way
It's important that you walk your own
What you give out will come back at you
The day when you suddenly have to pay up
 
I don't think it's a fat bitch
I think it's a countdown
I don't think it's a fat bitch
I think it's a countdown
I don't think it's a fat bitch
I think it's a countdown
I don't think it's a fat bitch
I think it's a countdown
 
Karma or the will of God
Doesn't matter how you want to put it
Something I've learned from my time on Earth
Is that everything will be equalized
It shouldn't be so damned hard
For people to see themselves what's right and wrong
Perhaps it's in our DNA and genes
The roles which save or cause problems
So many people tell me
"Life's a bitch and then you die"
I think that's the easy path
'Cause then none of the rules have to matter to you
I don't think it's a fat bitch
I think it's a countdown
To something else; a new beginning and introduction
 
I'm not saying that I know the way
It's important that you walk your own
What you give out will come back at you
The day when you suddenly have to pay up
 
I don't think it's a fat bitch
I think it's a countdown
I don't think it's a fat bitch
I think it's a countdown
I don't think it's a fat bitch
I think it's a countdown
I don't think it's a fat bitch
I think it's a countdown
