Sky is the limit

Narrative about the fear of different limits in life.


They told me sky is the limit
dreams are up in cloud 9
keep on dreaming for a minute babe
I’ll save you offline

It’s getting late, time is up
I’m too old for this nonsense
Flying by so fast 
I think I’m losing my senses

Put a limit on spirit
doesn’t mean it will kill it
Cause my mind, body, spirit
Don’t even know I will get it

But I get it
I think it’s all my system
But nobody will listen
cause the system is twisted

The sky it the limit
But I’m seeing stars
Afraid it will kill me
If I’m trying too hard

And what if I lift it
I’m raising the bar
Don’t know if my limits
can take me this far

Ignore the limit of speed
My licence’s bout to suspend
when I am taking the lead
I’m heading to this dead end

So, can I call it a day?
I’d like to leave and run away
Will it be better in the long run?
Only know that when it’s done

4 friends max is the advice
To be allowed and visit
I know it’s hard, but realise
we’re doing it just for the limit

Looking back, I can see
No one’s having my back,
but it was just hitting me
When he hit me in the back

The sky it the limit
But I’m seeing stars
Afraid it will kill me 
If I’m trying too hard

And what if I lift it
I’m raising the bar
Don’t know if my limits
can take me this far
Sky is the limit

Dreams are up in cloud 9

It’s getting late, time is up I’m too old for this nonsense

He thinks about the time he has in his life, about how best to spend it. It is late in the evening, which indicates that the whole day has already passed.

He sees that his time limit is quickly passing and feels that he is too old to reflect on this aging.

Flying by so fast I think I’m losing my senses

Put a limit on spirit doesn’t mean it will kill it Cause my mind, body, spirit Don’t even know I will get it

Putting an age limit on buying alcohol does not mean it will stop him from getting it anyway. You can impose so many limits in life, but his mind is always free and will never be able to be killed. There is a limit to his body's ability to handle a certain amount of alcohol. His head thinks he can handle it, but his body knows it can't.

But I get it I think it’s all my system

He now understands how it works, the understanding of ‘sky is the limit’, he has been taught and taught in such a way that it is in his head. Also referring to the alhocol that is still in his body, and thus in his system, through which he sees that he does not always see things clearly.

But nobody will listen cause the system is twisted

Nobody wants to listen to him. The society in which he lives is not what it seems. The sky it the limit But I’m seeing stars Afraid it will kill me If I’m trying too hard

And what if I lift it  I’m raising the bar Don’t know if my limits can take me this far

If the limit is the sky, why can he still see the stars beyond? He is afraid that he will exceed his limit and go under it if he tries too hard to keep up with the times. He doesn't know how to deal with all kinds of limits in his life.

Ignore the limit of speed My licence’s bout to suspend

when I am taking the lead I’m heading to this dead end

When he chooses to take charge of his life, he fears it will cost him his life. He doesn't know whether to take matters into his own hands, or to listen to the advice of family and friends.

So, can I call it a day? I’d like to leave and run away Will it be better in the long run? Only know that when it’s done

He wonders if there is any point in just quitting and running away from his own life. He just isn't sure if this will be the best choice in the end. He only knows that when the moment has come and his life is actually over.

When he looks back to the years in his life, he realizes that no one really supported him the way he would have liked. He only realized this when he made a big mistake.
