Do we just keep on pretending,

That there can be a happy ending?

Or do we finally admit

That maybe this is it

Cause maybe there is no silver lining

Although we keep on trying

To make the most of what

This empty world has brought


Can we just forget it all?

Make like we never saw

The ending on the page

Written with heartache and enraged

From what we never knew

Chained animals in a zoo

Awaiting our sentence

No chance for repentance


Perhaps if we had been

A little wiser then

This wouldn’t have come to pass

We could’ve made it last

Instead here we are

Waiting in the dark

For one of us to break

Confess what we couldn’t make
