This Pretence

Feel the air around you tense
Gasses streaming through the vents
Close your eyes to this pretence
Let your thoughts go wild tonight

Not a minute left to spare
What’s the point of your despair
Find your home and travel there
Live your prior life again

Memoirs written without pen
Lives expire, know not when
From the dust and back again
Something human takes us all

So in this metaphoric state
Maybe we should not belate
A minute’s dreaming cannot wait
Stand and face the sun tonight

One day we must meet our end
Every moment that we spend
What is past is all we rend
To our everlasting state.

This Pretence
