You better run
The chance is becoming farther and farther
Reach out to grab it
There’s no turning back now!

Failure is at your heels
Success is running away
You better chase it
Don’t lose it now!

You put your heart and soul into what got you here
One misstep and it will cost you everything you have
Everything you ever wanted
It will all go up in smoke
If you don’t focus on the task at hand
This is called the race of life!

There are ways to get there quicker than where you are right now
Many just take it since they all think it’s faster
But there is a price to pay at the end of the tunnel
Better to take the long way and not get rerouted

Some of those detours will throw you out of the game
They will cost you everything and everyone you have
Take the high road and the long way
Chances are that you will make it out alive

You put your heart and soul into what got you here
One misstep and it will cost you everything you have
Everything you ever wanted
It will all go up in smoke
If you don’t focus on the task at hand
This is called the race of life!

Why do people take these shortcuts
Cheating will cost you fairly high
Just be the better person
And ignore all of the lies
The longer and harder the road
Will make you faster and stronger in the end
So make that decision now
Before it’s just too late

You put your heart and soul into what got you here
One misstep and it will cost you everything you have
Everything you ever wanted
It will all go up in smoke
If you don’t focus on the task at hand
This is called the race of life!

You put your heart and soul into what got you here
One misstep and it will cost you everything you have
Everything you ever wanted
It will all go up in smoke
If you don’t focus on the task at hand
This is called the race of life!
Another song by me! Got the idea after hearing Papa Roach's To Be Loved: [link]

The race of life is pretty much like...a race XD Fall too far behind and you lose many chances to do or be something, get ahead and you have a higher chance at getting there first and seizing the opportunity!

The detours are the things that mess people up from their 'race of life' I used drugs and addictions as the idea. People tell you to do it but if you just say no and move on then you will take the high and longer road that will be worth while!
