about

A New Day's Eve is a poem by Satnam (satna.ms) written on December 31st, 2009. Inspired by the constant barrage of resolutions, which are often made prior to the beginning of a New Year. The author believes that you shouldn't wait for an arbitrary date like the 1st of January to begin making these changes. Start today. Life is short, appreciate each day that you're given and live your life to the fullest.

lyrics

It's just 'Champagne Wishes, Caviar Dreams'
Washing the slate clean on this New Year's Eve
As we wish for a reprieve from all the dirty deeds
Throughout the last year, as we try to believe
That a list of resolutions is all that we need
In reality, we're blinded by the lust and the greed
Sorrows drowned in booze and the smoke of the weed
Remember: Sin is still sin no matter how it's conceived
Now that this high is achieved, I can activate the
Motivation I need to go out and suceeed
And accomplish anything, and become the man I can be
Yet it's not so simple, so why try and deceive
Our own logical thinking, by thinking that we
Need an arbitrary date to set fate's direction and speed
And redirect it on a path in order to be free
If you wanna be free, listen to your heart, take heed
Make changes today, or any other 'New Day's Eve'
And be the best version of yourself, you gotta trust me
Live a life of honesty, one anyone would wanna lead
Keep a positive attitude, and that's when you will see
The fruits of your labor; savor it, pass it onto your seeds
Cause life is a struggle, but never let the ground meet your knees
March forward through the darkness 'til the sun's within reach
Because tomorrow's a new day, appreciate it, indeed
Enjoy this moment, as if this were the last breath you might breathe
