Life's Not A Race

This song is by 311 and appears on the album Soundsystem (1999).

A day like today is for you
To let your mind unwind like you ought to
Feel the earth turn 'round when your heart rate slows
Contemplating the thing only your heart knows
That life's not a race

So hard to believe
Part of me will fade
In a mystery
In a future world
Long ago
Parts feel for your love
And lives to tell you so

The world whirls around your mind in a golden spiral
The natural way that things organize
You can't stop entropy so why even try
Observe the conscious flow and don't mystify
Life's not a race

So hard to believe
Part of me will fade
In a mystery
In a future world
Long ago
Parts feel for your love
And lives to tell you so

Uh, hey
Slippin' into a trance
A chance encounter in the autumn
What do I see an opportunity
And then, I got' em
Sought a chill-out mix to
Carve some space
To make you want to listen
It's a bubblin' spring and
Double in kings of
This soundsystem

So hard to believe
Part of me will fade
In a mystery
In a future world
Long ago
Parts feel for your love
And lives to tell you so

Do you see world without end
The rising sun my friend
Imagine cloud-like
You will form again
In the spacey boredom
In the autumn of late afternoon
You are calm
Just like a sleepy room
