Painless

Death is a long time coming, but most of it is painless,
Crying takes a heart of steel and my heart is stainless,
You treat loved ones like dirt, until everything goes bad,
Why does it take death for one to realize what they had?
This world is turning black and white, the colors disappearing,
Just take a second to listen to the world, describe what you are hearing,
You don't hear crying or screaming, not even all of the above?
In a world full of hate there is no room for care and love,
Everyday there is people killing just because,
Not caring who the person is or who the hell he was,
You see a girl alone crying, it's fine don't ask her why,
Just wait for her to get taken by a creep passing by,
As you sleep at night, you can't stop from dreaming,
The little girl is on your mind and the song she was singing
"Why am I fighting to live, if I'm just living to fight,
Why am I trying to see, when there is nothing in sight,
Why am I trying to give, when no one gives me a try,
Why am I dying to live, if I'm living to die."
You wake up the next morning humming that song,
Damn, now you realize leaving was wrong,
And you're sprinting to the place only to find the girl's mom,
She's crying asking you "Have you seen my kid?"
You walk away head down, knowing you did,
Now listen to the world, you hear the crying and screaming,
You wish all of this was fake and you were back in bed dreaming,
Now you try to turn your life around, no more being the devil's chauffeur,
The sad thing about it is, now your life is over,
Death is a long time coming, most of it is painless,
Crying takes a heart of steel and my heart is stainless.
