lyrics

On the dawn of the day when my life ends
I'll make my way down to the kitchen
And work on scrambling an egg
On the dawn of the day when I will die
I'll tell a stupid joke to my mother
And surely she will sigh
I've been left alone for far too long
Community has always eluded me
So I've wallowed in my inner sad song
At the end of my life, I'll be sick to my stomach
Cause no matter how cruel this world's been to me
I know I'll find reasons to miss it
So I'm glad I haven't yet been found dead
Cause that was never guaranteed to me
Whether it be by my own hand
Or the ruthless hand of the powers that be

I see a distant hell
When I stare into the eyes of my past self
But there is only here and now

On the eve of the day when it cuts to black
I'll crawl out of bed at midnight
And eat some disgusting prepackaged snacks
On the eve of the day when I disappear
I'll read a short story to my cousin's kids
And hope they can live lives with less fear
At the end of my life, I'll bury my brain
Within memories of all the art I love
Reflections of beautiful humanity

I won't be afraid to go
I've long since given up any sense of control
I'll just know I never knew anything at all

At the end of the dawn of the final day
I'll say goodbye to the people I grew to love
But there will still be endless words left to say
