lyrics

She said, “There will come a day,
When an asteroid or solar flare would come out of nowhere and it,
Would be curtains for us all,
It’s not supernatural, it’s just a thing that happens.”

And I know that you’ve been scared that there will come a day,
When we would see the ending of the human race.
Said, “If we get old and gray--
Though it’s unlikely ‘cause the rate of cancer’s just too massive in my family--
But if it happens anyways,
I want you to be the one to pull the plug on me.”

And I know that it’s been hard to watch her fade away,
But as she sinks below the pressure, you can hear her say:

“I don’t think I’ll be around much longer,
But if you stay with me, you’d calm my nerves.”

“We won’t make it anyways,
Although I love you dearly, but dear clearly, I sincerely think that you’ll find,
Someone better some day,
But if you stay with me, I’d try to be as happy as a girl could be,
And try to have those basic dreams about having a family,
And you could take me to Thanksgiving and show me off to all your cousins,
Just help me ease the pain of living,
Help me ease the pain!”

“Of living in a world where there is so much hate,
Where fear and desolation ring out on the streets!
Where bullets meet the old concrete,
The bodies stacked up on the streets,
All the failures that will come of me,
They will weigh on my soul, they will be the death of me!”

“I don’t think I’ll be around much longer,
But if you stay with me, you’d calm my nerves.”
