Break the mirrored glass

And stare at the face of infinity

Laugh because you cry

Cry because you see

That the dream is over now

You are awake

You can feel your muscles ache

You want to

No more pills

Shake hands with your pain

It's your best fucking friend

You are alive

Alive

Do you remember what that means

You must exist

If you feel it

Run outside in the moonlight

And the cold falling rain

In the dark

In the shadowy night

And scream

I love it

I feel it

I feel that sharpness

The pins in your throat bleeding

Into ulcers in your stomach

Passing through diseased kidneys

That is the beauty

Can't you see

That is where you can see God

In the dying of the cells

In your swan song

In your own living decay

Therein lies the only truth

Shout hallelujah

You are dying

Yes

You are dying

To live

You are living

Yes

You are living

To die

P.S.

Tell them you love them

Now

Don't wait

Trust me this is your last chance

Tell them everything you want

To say

Because make no mistake

You are in gods waiting room

As we speak

The first time you moved

In the womb

Of your mother

You started the cogs

In the watch

Thats only purpose

Is to countdown to

Your demise

The first action you took

Was the one that killed you

Believe it

And celebrate it

You are we

And we

Are ashes
