You are running through your troubled mind
You can see your life and how badly you are blind

You can see your lack of love and hope
And the unavoidable rope
It is looming in the distance
You know that it’s coming no matter your resistance
Sometimes the future is better left alone
Your fear of what to come has grown
But you know that there is no getting away
It will soon be the day
All thoughts lead you to this conclusion
This time it’s not an illusion
It’s not like you have anything to go back for
You’ve had enough you don’t want more
You lived on the other side of happiness long enough
You are done trying to be tough
Any day now the time will finally be right
And the rope will be drawn tight
And you will no longer have to live this life
With all its pain and strife
On the other side of happiness
