ace lyrics – descendents

lyrics and music by b. stevenson)

i see tha anger in the back of your eyes
i know the vengeance running through your mind
you’re up on the cross with a heart full of nails
hanging your head whenever you fail

* you’re thinking. now’s the time
you keep saying. now’s the time
but you still keep standing still
you’re free now. now’s the time
it’s over now. now’s the time
and i believe. now’s the time

and there ain’t a thing now that you can do
you expect everyone to have pity on you
n*body else can put their life in your hands
so get up and move while you still have the chance

** with all of your mind, and all of your soul
and all of your heart, if you want to be smart
you’ve got a lot to give, don’t throw it away
you’ll have your way some day, it will come to you


let’s see what you do with the rest of your days
you had it all and you gave some away
it’s not going to matter when you’re dead and gone
you’ll be rewarded for the good that you’ve done

*** so quit thinking. now’s the time.
and start doing. now’s the time
you’ve got a lot to live for
so quit crying. now’s the time
and start trying. now’s the time
now’s the time. now’s the time to live

you say you’ve been run through the lover’s mill
but people are starving while you get your fill
there’s not time for standing still
there’s another void that you can fulfill
that you can fulfill
