This is for the hopeless, the dying and the troubled youth. My heart goes out to all of you. I know how hard life can be, especially when you don't have anyone. Just keep your chin up and take it one day at a time.

I hate all the liars who say everything's gonna be okay,

When they don't know how hard it is to struggle everyday.

Why do they lie, when everyone knows the truth?

For the hopeless, for the dying, for the troubled youth?

It won't help them, it can't reach them, if your words are paper thin.

They don't suffer from the cold outside, but from the cold within.

They say the light will never die, but what if it doesn't light the way?

What if it doesn't exist? What if it's just a cliche?

Those who want to save the world are on their own,

Because the rest of us lost hope long ago.

Blind faith and empty promises won't get us anywhere,

Kindness is a treasure that no one wants to share.

Some will follow the false light, moving nowhere, yet rushing.

Others will wander, searching for something in nothing.
