There is so much more tragedy that unites us
There is so much more that we all have in common
Than we could ever perceive
What do you want to believe?
That everyone is out to get you?
Or that everyone is just preoccupied
Fleeing the grasp of a monster that you can't see?
What will you believe?
There are no simple answers
There is no easy labor
But there is no other way
Cause otherwise, nothing fucking gets done
Don't let yourself stagnate
Just let yourself change
The world will be waiting
Try not to show up late
You can always get better
You can always be kinder
To the people beside you
To the vulnerable child forever living within you
