What does it take to be considered alive?
Everything thriving on the inside?
While we are left dying with every truth we hide.
Living day to day on the run,
From the corruption and greed of the world,
Numbed on socially-constructed poison for fun.
Like pills and drugs and alcohol,
They build me up and watch me fall.
I’m just playing the game,
So enjoy the show while I take all the blame.
So much has gone misunderstood,
Not doing what we should.
Always up to no good downtown
With our noses in the air.
But the lies we keep,
Lie buried too deep;
All full of deceit.
So I’ll take your pills and go to sleep, praying that tomorrow
I’ll wake up somewhere brighter upon the ocean shore,
To the sound of a steady breath.
My heartbeat says I am alive
But I’m just not sure.
If I’m still alive by the time I awake,
I have already died in the world I forsake.
