in another country i found myself again thinking is this all there is? a little culture to change you a new perspective to give is this all there is? enough money to please me enough time to kill is this all there is? feels like i’m moving backwards feels like i’m standing still feels like i’m never quite understood - could live twenty-nine lives could try forty-five times is this all there is? it’s all constantly changing it’s all one in the same is this all there is? one minute you borrow and then the next you pay is this all there is? i keep getting older but i stay feeling the same wasting time, counting down days - embraced the hand of your god fumbled truth in my palm is this all there is? sampled every religion they all taste the same is this all there is? a string of binary numbers an algorithm to be saved is this all there is? got a voice for every reason an excuse for every state just let it settle, feel the weight - spend your entire life working to fill the space with useless things is this all there is? agoraphobic and empty but at least i feel safe is this all there is the side effects of being human a consequence of being made is this all there is? when i’m finally dying will i look back and think my god, is this all there is?

when i look in the mirror don’t know who’s looking back if there's something greater i can’t help but laugh i feel the weight of the world inside of me agoraphobic full of anxiety i know when i die there won’t be no gates it’s like when you’re sleeping and don’t feel a thing what does it matter? maybe it don't i still keep worrying’ for what, i don’t know i don’t wanna lose control forever so i pray hard that there’s no heaven who’s gonna wait for us? who’s gonna savor us? who’s gonna watch us die? who’s gonna wait for us? who’s gonna save us? who would make us just to watch us die? there’s nothing to learn here so why would i pray? ain’t no enlightenment we’re just decay travelin’ through time but we’re standin’ in place reachin’ for something we’d just throw away and i know when i die... wait, no i don’t and whoever says they do is just selling you their hopes bound by the ego achin’ for praise what does it matter? if it all fades away i don’t wanna lose control forever so i pray hard that there’s no heaven who’s gonna wait for us? who’s gonna savor us? who’s gonna watch us die? who’s gonna wait for us? who’s gonna save us? who would make us just to watch us die? somebody better start making some sense cause it ain’t gonna be me i’ve already lost my shit somebody, anybody start makin’ sense born under punches is this all there is? and i swear i’m gonna lose my mind if i haven’t already lost it yet, my god i’m losing all control this time this time last year i was exactly where i am right now god remained indifferent and i never figured anything out at least, i don’t think so
