lyrics

It remains the same sentiment.
But I've read a few new books since then.
So I'll employ some synonyms.
But I'm no more articulate.

Just one voice in my head.
But it's way too loud.
It's freaking me out.
But I don't dare to drown it out.

The absence it
Terrifies me so.
I'll just stick
To the devil that I know.

It remains the same sentiment.
But I've read a few new books since then.
So I'll employ some synonyms.
But I'm no more articulate.

To the absurd!
Focus is slurred.
Fight your failure now.
To the abyss!
Grin and bear it.
Force your freedom now.


The absence it
Terrifies me so.
I'll just stick
To the devil that I know.

It remains the same sentiment.
But I've read a few new books since then.
So I'll employ some synonyms.
But I'm no more articulate.

She said there was a beauty to my nihilism.
I'm not sure why I still came to her with these things.
I suppose it's just nice to feel understood, to feel free of judgment.
But feeling misunderstood seems cliche, redundant, and childish.
Everybody's screamed about this through adolescence.
But all one really has is their perspective.
And things don't seem to really function as smoothly as they should for you.
Nothing really fits together as it's supposed to.
When you look out at the world, you're missing what they're all seeing.
At the same time, no one sees what you're talking about.
You're obsessed with the absurd, you're consumed by the paradox, you're confused by the order.
Despite your constant awareness of the trivial nature of human existence,
You feel you have some control.
You can regulate your emotions; You can limit your anger; You can temper your happiness.
But that uncertainty remains beyond your grasp.
This bend is terrifying, it's confusing, it's overwhelming.
But it's also liberating.
You don't get out of bed because you have to,
Because you don't.
You get out of bed because you want to.
And that helps a lot.

Because when you think about it,
All anyone is really searching for is something that will assure them that everything is going to be okay.
And when someone asks you if you believe that everything will work out,
It's thrilling, it's freeing, and it's motivating to confidently reply,

I don't know.
