vulnerable shallow lungs
everything but pain is forgotten
poison poison world you are someone
inside a mind and body rotten
giving your life for anything
while for yourself see no solution
life is life is life is not a dream
waiting to wake up death is permanent

hands in your pockets
walking down market
the sky is dark and
you see it like this
it was on purpose
the world is ruined
it was on purpose
youre no longer with us
it was on purpose
to leave so many victims
structure and system
living is killing
what is forgiveness
mourning your children
it was on purpose
where is the revolution

disability controlling you
how do you live through all the hurting
you will carry on that is what you
will tell yourself and keep repeating
tired and wasting time theyre telling you
theres so much more you could be doing
you dont know how much of that is true
youll do whatever you can to change things

what have you known in your life
to make things better
what have you done in your life
to make things better
what can you do to stay alive
to make things better
what all will you leave behind
to make things better
