locking eyes with my figure in the mirror,
it’s a ritual that’s all too frequent.
im searching for something.
but i find no redeeming qualities,
just endless shame and a swollen grin,
u cant laugh away the pain.

the pain of a heart growing cold,
the pain of a life that’s purposeless and dull,
its all null and void.
but im still trudging on, collecting soil as I drag along.
i’m trying to make it worthwhile.

and im not scared of ever dying alone.
i know people who will keep me warm,
they’re searching for something.
and nothings ever gonna hold us back,
we’re gonna live our lives, we’re gonna take a chance
to laugh away the pain.
