This is my only, my heartfelt apology
For the world broken by the tears and pain
A million children crying
For the ones left who can't be saved
And this is my eulogy
Based on your stupidity
For feeling life can be thrown away
Videotape his last moments, and see them again before your eyes
In a courtroom much less friendly.
And this is my reason for the treason I live in
My cover-up for your screw-up on life.
Maybelline makes it what it may seem
And now he's dead, and so is the dream
He's one in the million of the thousands in plenty
Who's gone because of your foolish pride
And you cry and scream for the one you lost-
But next week, it happens again.
And this is my eulogy for unbroken happiness
Not like the shards of glass that lie on the carpet
This is my farewell to heartfelt tears of sorrow for others
And not joy that it wasn't you.
This is my eulogy for all that is holy
This is my eulogy for the world.
