Wake up and smell the coffee

Wake up and smell the coffee
you aren't as sweet as toffee
it's all in your head
what they said
you took it upon yourself to take it the wrong way
didn't listen to the words they say
never giving their opinions the light of day

isn't it time
you stopped this mime
realised that you've commited a moral crime?
smell the coffee
stop being so bossy
lighten up
and join the club

Stop and Stare

We have no time to stand and stare
Life is busy and hectic
No time to stop and care.

Eat, Work, Sleep
24 hours goes past in a blur
Leaving you in a shattered heap
then the cycle starts again
Eat, Work, Sleep.

No time to work on that tan
Money makes the world go round
or so some people say
Forever in that same old circle, bound.

But if we never stop
what do we miss?
Singing and dancing to Blitzkrieg Bop?
The lust and passion of that great kiss?

Break the cycle
Get on that bicycle
Stop and explore
Don't just ignore
Life is beautiful
so take the time to stop and stare.
