Open your eyes and see The future you left behind for thee Did you think? Did you know? At the consequence that once seemed unknown Open your eyes and realize That everything can happen in a blink of an eye Why do you have to learn the hard way? And when it’s not the same? Your future. Your life. Your family. All the things that make you happy But now open your eyes and see All the things that could be For a foolish mistake? Think of all at stake For that fateful day which was not the same The laughs of joy-now tears of sorrow Because of you Will there be a bright tomorrow? Only if you knew But now it’s too late – this fateful day Do your time Incriminate. Your dreams. Your life. Your future. It won’t come any sooner Beams of light shine through those cold bars All because of a car? No YOU made this happen you see Acting ignorantly That quick glance away is all it takes To forever change a life – mistake Know your future is put to a halt And yes, it’s your fault College. Family. Happiness. A Future. It won’t come any sooner Think twice before you drive away There’s so much at stake to contemplate So next time you get behind a wheel Consider your future – not your automobile
