Lyrics

The secret to life can’t be found
on an infomercial in the middle of the night.

The secret to love won’t be awarded after jumping through every hoop just right.
If life was that simple, would there really be a point?

If life was that easy,

we’d all be rolling a joint.

You gotta live every day like it could be your last.

You gotta love wholeheartedly regardless of your past.

You gotta laugh with all your might.
You gotta cry and bleed and stand up for what’s right.

If you come upon a fork in the middle of the road, whatcha gonna do?

Skate down the road more traveled upon or put on some hiking shoes?

If at some point today, you don’t break a sweat,
will you close your eyes tonight heavy with regret?

You gotta live every day like it could be your last.

You gotta love wholeheartedly regardless of your past.

You gotta laugh with all your might.
You gotta cry and bleed and stand up for what’s right.

Broke my heart when I learned the truth behind my work with

the non-profit prostitutes.
Now I can’t afford no health insurance.

Pharmaceuticals driving me bankrupt.

Wasting our energy protesting marriage.

Telling me abortion isn’t my choice.
We’re still debating the use of marijuana.

Locking up some hard-working farmers.
Spent my twenties earning myself an $87,000 degree.

You’ve got to live.
