about

A short contemplation on mortality as I approach the age of twenty far faster than I ever expected to.

Dedicated to Malachi Mitchell-Thomas, who died doing what he loved.

lyrics

From dust I was made,
And it's there I'll be laid,
It's a simple matter I'm afraid,
Ash comes after the flame,
It's all the same,
Dust will be all that remains.

Too cruel to be kind,
I plead search your own mind,
You never know what you may find,
That's what truly matters,
At least to me,
Who'd rather be flattered than free?

I'm almost Twenty,
And feeling like I'm growing old
Faster than I ever was told,
I'm melting,
My youth is fading.

And so it goes on,
This life's marathon,
Can quickly turn into a sprint,
As in days gone by,
Time will continue to fly.

Oh and Malachi knows,
What lies after the close,
The good Lord won't be robbed of his due,
I'll bring his tithe to the storehouse,
Let me offer what he couldn't do.

I'm almost Twenty,
And feeling like I'm growing old
Faster than I ever was told,
I'm melting,
My youth is fading away,
And it may be soon but today,
I feel it's been given away,
It's clearer,
This life's a vapour.

I'm almost Twenty,
And feeling like I'm growing old
Faster than I ever was told,
I'm melting,
My youth is fading.
