This one goes out to all of you who have a destiny to fulfill. In the words of a great man "Most people die at age 25 but aren't buried until they're 75." — Benjamin Franklin

Also, in case you are wondering, this is a remixed version of a single I released in 2012. We added some percussion and tweaked the mix a little.


I had a talk with the voice inside
I sat him down so I could look him straight in the eye  
I asked him why he's knockin, always knockin at my door
He said man, cuz your throwin it all away

You're zombie walkin to your job each day
to plug yourself in, another gear in the machine
Leaving you dreams behind to walk down the assembly line
Of people who tried and now are wearin the warning signs

Why Wait
Why wade
Why must you wade
In a sea of sorrow
Why Wait
Why must you Wait
Why Wait
Until Tomorrow

Your walking down a dead end street
Chasing those dollar bills for the illusions that they buy
Now your always worried their gonna take our toys away
when its those toys that are wrapping you up in chains
An image eats you up inside
Under that tombstone without the chance to plant your seed
you gotta leave em with something to keep'em comin back
to keep'em smilin when your buried, dead and gone

Why Wait
Why wade
Why must you wade
In a sea of sorrow
Why Wait
Why must you Wait
Why Wait
Until Tomorrow... Start living your life today

You can't wait until tomorrow
Those birthday candles, they only burn for so long
Stop dragging your heart and let it lead the way
Let it shine on to keep your soul from goin blind

Why Wait
Why wade
Why must you wade
In a sea of sorrow
Why Wait
Why must you Wait
Why Wait
Until Tomorrow... Start living your life today
