How many days does a man live

How many days does a man live
Does he spend 75 years alive
Or is he spending those years trying to merely survive

Maybe the media has been lying
Maybe we can’t really spend our time buying life
Maybe we were just complying
Working a 9 till 5 ting
So that we could be retiring when were hardly alive
Spending all our savings on our remaining days

Maybe we only truly lived
For a week or two at most
When we found that love
And time stopped because for a moment
We was in the moment
Taking a chance hoping maybe we could get some romance

But most of the time life is a little chaotic
Even though what we do is robotic
Reapting daily those mindless tasks
Tryna survive
It’s kind of psychotic really

How many days does a man live
Does he spend 75 years alive
Or is he spending those years trying to merely survive
