I try to make sense of what's going on in this thing we call life

But false misconceptions lead me to a road of pain

I try to understand what happens

But could never find the answer


Maybe pain is just a lack of understanding?

But quite frankly, I find joy in the pursuit of happiness

But I know I’ll never find it

It's like a dream


Life asked death

"Why do some many people love me, but hate you?"

And death responded with "Because you’re a beautiful lie and I'm the ugly truth".

I try to make sense of what's going on in this thing we call life


The pain and adversity I face

Just to fall up short again

I look to the left nothing is right

I look to my right and nothing is left


So, tell me what do I do?

How am I supposed to live,

Knowing this cycle of uncertainty will continue

And mankind will forever suffer?


Unfortunately, this is called life and we live just to die curious and never truly satisfied.
