Song#: 14

Album
Name of Song: Being nothing

Always gotta be doing things,
It keeps us feeling whole,
Instead of all those demons that
degrade and eat our soul.

It’s really deep down terror,
The kind never talked about,
The kind that’s buried deep inside
and made of all our doubts.

You think I’m simply saying that,
We’ve all been round a while,
Cycling in and out of lives,
Many agree a thought too vile.

Chorus
The thought of being nothing,
Of having nothing to do,
Or having nothing to pass the time,
You slide into askew.
Nothing left of something,
Real terror deep in our mind,
That thought of being nothing makes you
feel you’re going blind.
______

People can’t confront their past,
The part that’s full of pain,
So better just to wall it off
and everything now is “brain”.

Too much pain so long ago,
Too many thoughts of loss,
Too many connections now undone,
Those times are now your boss.

Chorus
The thought of being nothing,
Of having nothing to do,
Or having nothing to pass the time,
You slide into askew.
Nothing left of something,
Real terror deep in our mind,
That thought of being nothing makes you
feel you’re going blind.

Bridge
Nothing, being nothing,
It’s what we fear the most,
It’s what we dread to feel inside
WHEN ZEROED OUT AS HOST.
Feeling being nothing,
Feeling being alone,
Feeling that we’ve lost control,
A chilling to the bone.
