Ceaseless

Every day,

Every day, I survived, I got by,

Every day, I survived, I got by, Stayed sane by remembering,

Every day, I survived, I got by, Stayed sane by remembering, That it all ends in a few days.

Now they tell me,

Now they tell me, The end is far into the future,

Now they tell me, The end is far into the future, A future no one can see,

Now they tell me, The end is far into the future, A future no one can see, No one can determine.

I'm sick of it all,

I'm sick of it all, Of the uncertain fog,

I'm sick of it all, Of the uncertain fog, That refuses to leave my side,

I'm sick of it all, Of the uncertain fog, That refuses to leave my side, Obscuring the finish line.

I'm sick of the loop,

I'm sick of the loop, The monotonous constant,

I'm sick of the loop, The monotonous constant, Again and again and again,

I'm sick of the loop, The monotonous constant, Again and again and again, Variations none for the bland scenario.

How long do I go like this,

How long do I go like this, Confined to underlined paragraphs,

How long do I go like this, Confined to underlined paragraphs, Dog-eared pages a million,

How long do I go like this, Confined to underlined paragraphs, Dog-eared pages a million, Waiting to be relieved from my blank eyes.

I can slowly feel it slip away,

I can slowly feel it slip away, Any hopes, any motive,

I can slowly feel it slip away, Any hopes, any motive, Nothing, nothing remains,

I can slowly feel it slip away, Any hopes, any motive, Nothing, nothing remains, Except the blank uncertainty.

How I feared losing my sanity,

How I feared losing my sanity, How I never realized I already did,

How I feared losing my sanity, How I never realized I already did, Long ago, yet in denial I survived,

How I feared losing my sanity, How I never realized I already did, Long ago, yet in denial I survived, For I was promised it would end soon.

Insomnia tingling in my scalp,

Insomnia tingling in my scalp, Shadows painted beneath my eyes,

Insomnia tingling in my scalp, Shadows painted beneath my eyes, Flipping the same pages again,

Insomnia tingling in my scalp, Shadows painted beneath my eyes, Flipping the same pages again, For what? I don't know anymore.

Decades I lost in a year,

Decades I lost in a year, Dreams, memories I gave up,

Decades I lost in a year, Dreams, memories I gave up, Just as I learnt to forget myself,

Decades I lost in a year, Dreams, memories I gave up, Just as I learnt to forget myself, To adapt and move on, never complaining.

Never uttering a single word,

Never uttering a single word, A million words could change nothing,

Never uttering a single word, A million words could change nothing, I just want it to end,

Never uttering a single word, A million words could change nothing, I just want it to end, I want... to sleep.

Never uttering a single word, A million words could change nothing, I just want it to end, I want... to sleep. It's been a while.
