Name of Song: Forgetting after dying

Sadly now forgetting,
So shortly after death,
Wondering where I am and what,
I’m doing with no breath.

The many myths of dying,
And where you really go,
You tend to hang around the life
of those you feel you owe.

Your body gave location,
And a family to belong,
And the stuff you got along the way
It made you sorta strong.

Chorus
But forgetting after dying,
Just nothing to compare,
Where am I am what am I
An overwhelming scare.
I have no stable data,
That helped me to be cause,
Now I look to where I am,
So effect because, because…

Bridge
Forgetting after dying,
I need to understand,
So fleeting is that moment when
You’re hanging by a strand.
Grabbing onto something
Does never cross your mind,
The flash of life then death beyond,
No thought of your sublime.
______

So here is our dilemma,
Believe and live your life,
Or look into your inner mind
And erase that ignored strife.

The thought is unconfrontable,
Just how much strife within,
But wait until you die, you’ll know
Just how socked in you’ve been.

But then it’s too late waking up,
Guess you’ll try next time,
But forgetting after dying stops
The best intended mind.

Chorus
