Life is pretty ironic huh

Nowadays self-sabotage is glorified Mothers wide-eyed and terrified Of their little babies becoming demonised Getting help is horrified But bottling it up is normalised As a society we lead by false priorities that demoralise the youth Self-help, wealth and health all lie buried deep in the depths Instead of help we take a breath, use our strength and try and avoid death Life is horrible but death is feared You can only optimise and epitomise your self-worth once the smoke has cleared Keep to yourself and bite your tongue Your struggles don't matter when you're young You think it's bad now? My child, it has only begun Wait till you grow up son I tell you again It has only just begun I wish I was young again I didn't think it would hurt like this kind of pain I guess I was right society is messed up and everyone is to blame It's tricky to explain But after years of bottling it up I guess it's pain the brain can't contain Give me a minute I think that's the train station I wish me and my friends had more communication I wish I worked harder at school and got the best out of my education But the combination of lack of concentration and too much imagination left me and my thoughts in isolation The train comes in three minutes It's kind of funny this is going to be the first train I use with no tickets I just hope there's no witnesses to see my disappearance I'm not even religious but I'm praying Lord give me forgiveness Oh snap train's here The sound of metal on metal is pain in my ears But my own heartbeat is the only thing I can hear One look to the sky as I shed a tear Now it's my time to disappear This is it, there's no going back You've got society to thank You wish you had more people to reminisce over but your mind has gone blank There's no time to think Now you've stepped onto the track And in a split second that bright beautiful world turned black
