I hate to think I’ll make it to 70, potentially 75, and realise I’ve never been alive

I try new things, I shoot films on my phone
And I play them back when I’m alone, did that happen?
I walk around, trying to understand every sound
Trying to make my feet connect with every inch of ground
The sky flattens my cap, battens me down
Everything’s in its category, packaged in self flattering girls
Battle reality, it’s battle royale
Everyone is chattering, nothing is real, collect my salary
Cookin’ a meal, rice and vegetables, I exercise regularly
How that I feel, visceral melody, is this all that’s ahead of me?
I always thought that life would mean more to me eventually
I hate to think I’ll make it to 70, potentially 75
And realise I’ve never been alive
Spend the rest of my days regretting, wishing I could be forgetting
