It Ends

from Fear of Life by Atheists



For somebody who truly
Doesn't ever want to die
I sure spend a hell of a lot of time
Thinking about the end of life
We know that it ends
What a relief to know it ends
You'd think it would help
But it only makes it worse

Sure, most people, most likely
Would prefer to stay alive
So long as we are healthy
It's not like we're itching to say goodbye
We know that it ends
What a strange thing to know that it ends
Makes us take care of ourselves
Which only makes it worse

I've started to comprehend
That this unruly fear of death
Is really a fear of life
I walk around hypnotized
Then suddenly I'm terrified
But why can't I just live my life?
I can't stand to talk about it
So why do I tend to sing about it?
I can't tell you the answer

Maybe I find some sort of small
Comfort in talking to a wall
Never thought I'd be the one
Who needs to be strung along
Who needs to be prodded along
Who needs to be coddled as though
Nothing is wrong

"Nothing is wrong"

I don't want to die
In fact I want to live a long life
And that is exactly why
I'm having such a hard time
'Cause I know that it ends
And I do not want it to end
And I do not want to need
To say goodbye to any of my friends

Though I suppose
Something about it all
Gives everything else worth
A tricky contraption, I know
But it works
