One hundred miles an hour
With your hair lit up… on fire
Might get you there much faster
But, aren’t you getting tired?

Deadlines, quotas, all of it
That can’t be good for you
Too many obligations
Too much for you to do.

The trials and tribulations
The day to day headaches
Will drive you really crazy
All the noise that they can make.

The senseless, idle chatter
The knocking on your door
Always wanting something different
Always wanting something more.

After all is said and done
Can’t seem to catch a break
Too many to keep satisfied
Ease up, put on the brakes.

Always in a hurry
Can’t slow down the pace
Need to dial it back a notch
Life’s a journey, not a race.
