"Life's under no obligation to give us what we want."


We stay up late,

And blast our music.

The music with bad words

And a worse meaning.


We stay up late,

And get high on drugs.

The drugs that kill our souls

And push us on a path with no redemption.


We stay up late,

And hang out with “friends”

The friends that are bad influences

And are doing bad things


We stay up late,

Believing lies to be truths.

The fake truths that are caused by our need for danger

And our intoxication for love.


We stay up late,

Trying to be cool.

The same “coolness” that comes from

Our desperation to belong anywhere.


We stay up late,

Not quite meaning to do what we do,

But ruining our lives all the same.
