Carpe Freakin’ Diem

“Carpe Diem” *

By Rob Weddle

“Carpe freakin’ Diem, man…come seize majestic day
Rebuke our dark adversity ‘till it starts to decay
Been the victim far too long? It’s time to get old school
By laughing in the wind we swear to never play the fool

Shake our fist at challenges and sweat until we bleed
Realize that on our weakened spirit darkness feeds
The enemy of human souls romanticizes death
In Blood we vow to battle ‘till our final, gasping breath

Lucifer will try to massacre our revelation
Though he can never triumph unless we bow to frustration
Victory is grueling, occupied by countless strife
But God will slay depression with a craggy, jagged knife

Some will war against despair, or pain which never ends
Those who conquer see life through a tainted contact lens
Some will see the world as dark while others see it light
But stars abide above the clouds of angry, April nights

‘Midst the lure of desperation, run a little faster
For every plan that works out, 37 bring disaster
But Carpe freakin’ Diem, man, come seize our glory day
‘Cuz setbacks are a desert rat and we’re the birds of prey”
