My Life Is Mine

by The Veltz Family



You've got one life
You've got a name
You've got a birth date
You'll have a death date

Do something that matters while you're here!


My Life is Mine
Music & lyrics by Ken Veltz

I'm gonna do my best to keep some rules as long as I'm here

Not gonna be the one that rains on your parade

Don't want to be above and won't allow myself to be beneath my peers
It's not an attitude it's just a job I've got to do to finish my race


I've got a name

A birth date in time

While I'm in the game

My life is mine

I truly hope that we can build together mutually throughout the years

I'll tell you everything I've learned, you can do the same

But if you need me to be less than I am to support your fears

It's nothing personal but now you're detrimental to the end of my days


The second hand is ticking
Everybody's walking bitching birth to the grave

Caught up in a spider web living in a social cast

Justifying doing nothing, milking pity, marching in the victim's parade
Blaming time and place instead of running in a race that is ending fast


Teacher, parent, lover, boss,
Don't expect me to respect you more than me

I can't afford to bet on anybody but myself

I hope you get me 'cause I'd love to hang around but I'm off to victory
And when this race is over I plan to look back and see
