I know we were young and you had the right And I know that you about broke when she died And I know you will do what you will and that's that And I'll try not to judge you, but you could have died I know that you wanted to feel something different And I can't imagine how you lit up inside But it's not just this asshole, it's what he brought with him Maybe you can stop, but you could have died. I still send you letters and wait for your calls I've long since abandoned all semblance of pride I know when I hear you I'll want to say nice things, But all that will come out is "you could have died." And now there's this book I should probably read, But your story is more than I can abide. I'm happy for all your accomplishments, love, And for all your success, but you could have died.

News to Me 04:18
This world we promised you through books and songs and stories This world of polar bears, rainforests, and coral reefs It's not quite how things are today; it's more like history. We just never knew quite how to say it. I wish that I could tell you That this was news to me. I wish that I could say that this was all a big surprise We hadn't lived our whole lives with it staring in our eyes. Truth is that we've seen it coming for so many years. We heard it too, we shut our eyes and then we blocked our ears. We wanted you to see the world as it was But now it's time you knew that it's not coming back. You wanted blue skies, birds and frogs and whales. At least on good days we can breathe without a mask.

This has gone too far and it’s not day one yet Government by shotgun Slash and burn, repeat All you have is lies They've served you well so far You’ve got a lot of rope there Looks good around your neck We are watching you We see it all You think that you’re invincible We promise you will fall Soon enough the ones you duped Will see they’re hurting worse. They’ll join us in the streets And we’ll run you out of town We said you’d never win It turns out we were wrong We’re saying it again We’ll fight to make it true For now we’ve got each other There are more of us than you Ignore us if you want Until we’re at your door

Will we ever know just how fucked we are?

Everything points to fuck the world Vote your spleen, blow shit up Buy a gun, buy another Tell someone to go to hell Then I see your little face And I think we might be okay Then you laugh and roll around And the world can live another day Everything points to the world is fucked Things are melting, things are burning More and more people, piling up Nobody cares, nothing changes Then I see your little face And I think we might be okay Then you laugh and roll around And the world can live another day Let's unfuck the world, you and I Let's unfuck the world until we die
