You Can't Escape
I sat down and thought real hard today,
Thinking things never go my way,
Everything I say I want real bad,
Is always something I'll never have,
It's hard to sit there thinking of life,
I'm not even 15 and have so much strife,
I still have so many years left in me,
And in my future I cannot see,
I wonder if I will find that guy,
And sit with him and stare at the sky,
I wonder if I'll find that one true friend,
And know they'll be there until the end,
How much more can one person take?
When everything they know is all so fake,
Their family, friends, even how they feel,
Tell me now, how does one deal?
Life in the long run doesn't look too good,
But to me life will never be understood,
To me it's an illusion in every which way,
Every question is rhetorical no matter what you say,
You won't get an answer it will just come,
But you can't do anything, not even run,
If you run, what are you going to run to?
Just back into life with nothing to do,
You can't ever escape from your life,
So go ahead and put down the knife,
Natural death is your only ticket out,
So don't go through life and have such doubt,
Live it now and when your dying you'll smile,
And now that everything you did was all worth while,
Life can be good if you want it to be,
Take my advice or just go and see,
If you don't like the way you are,
Then in this life you won't get far,
So change now and don't have regret,
For I love this lifetime and I'll never forget!
