Constantly Denying

from The Great Pretending by Mortal Void

/

lyrics

empty shell
lack of emotions
thoughts colliding
body collapsing
all hope rotting
existence dying

I'm so sick of lying to myself
so sick of pretending I am happy
and I pretend to be immortal
to survive the boring day

why do all the people we love have to die?
(at least in our minds)
why's there never the chance for a last goodbye?
(even if we don't want it)
why does it all inflict wounds and create pain?
(even if we don't feel it anymore)
why's there still nothing, nothing we can gain?
(even if we don't care anymore)

I'm stuck between my ghosts
creating memories, creating my thoughts
they're always trying to tell me
what I want and what I need
but what I get is something else

it is so different
not just the average of both
a segment from another reality
a reality I never wanted to see

I hoped life would have more to offer

I'm so sick of lying to myself
so sick of pretending I am happy
and I pretend to be immortal
to survive the boring day

why do all the people we love have to die?
(at least in our minds)
why's there never the chance for a last goodbye?
(even if we don't want it)
why does it all inflict wounds and create this pain?
(even if we don't feel it anymore)
why's there still nothing, nothing we can gain?
(even if we don't care anymore)

this can't be true
this can't be reality

It pretty much sounds like this:
"Ba dum ts ba dum tsa ba dum ba
boo ba dum ba da ba dibi dibi doo."

...and that's just the chorus!
