Theme Song of My Life
In my life I don't want to spend all my time just trying to "get ahead". I mean I don't want all of my time to be spent working at a job I hate, trying to get promoted, solely for the purpose of money and sacrifice fun and happiness in their life. I am hoping to find a job that I love and I believe that if I do that then in the end everything will work out and I'll be happy with my life. I would rather have fun in life because life is short and I don't want to waste it. This is what the song "In the End" by Linkin Park is about and that is why I chose it.
First they say, "Time is a valuable thing. Watch it fly by as the pendulum swings. Watch it count down to the end of the day.
The clock ticks life away.". This is just talking about how fast life will pass one by and there is no going back. To me he's trying to say that life will go faster than one might think and most people would want to make the most of the time they have on this earth. I personally am not looking forward to aging and I am most likely not alone on this feeling. This is why this line of the song means something to me and really stood out the first time I read the lyrics.
After that, comes the line "Didn't look out below. Watch the time go right out the window". It sounds to me like he's looking back on his life and regretting things he hasn't done in life or just sitting around wasting his life. I believe that many people can remember...
