sometimes the darkness snuffs out the light
before the day even begins
sometimes a bird dies before it takes flight
sometimes the sickness wins
sometimes ideals get crushed by the truth
and the ship sinks before it can sail
sometimes your white knights are proven uncouth
and all of your hard work still fails
sometimes your doctors can’t find a cure
and your saints are just hiding their sins
i’ve seen all i can, i can’t take any more
sometimes the sickness wins.
