I’d never been good at roller skating
so I had decided not to go
but lately I don’t care what I am bad at
I challenged what I thought I know

turns out, I’m still bad at roller skating
but I’ve got no regrets
I learned something, I left my house
consequences haven’t stopped me yet -

there’s no right answer
stop taking advice
do whatever you want to
we’re all gonna die

there are solvable problems
everything has a price
dance like nobody’s watching
we’re all gonna die

I can’t climb and I can’t ride
but maybe I could if I tried
I can’t fix the broken systems
but it’s still worth it to resist them

life comes at you lightning fast
any day could be your last
but there’s no good in fear or worry
if it doesn’t make you act

I don’t know what matters
and I don’t know why
I’m just making choices
we’re all gonna die

c’est la vie / carpe diem
yolo / diy
your mileage may vary
we’re all gonna die

I’ve erased all the rules in my internal hard disk
I think my new medication may throw off my sense of risk

actions can change you
to outgoing from shy
nothing is permanent
we’re all gonna die

can’t is a tough word
it is sometimes a lie
do things if you want to
’cause we’re all gonna die
but it’s worth it to try
I don’t want you to die
