People have always failed each other. People have always failed me, and vice versa. I imagine (actually, imagine isn't the right word) that sometimes people want to say this to me when I'm just... not caring as much as I should. Certainly, it's what I want to say to some of my mentors.

Verse 1:
Not by anger
And not by pain
But by sorrow and loneliness
Again and again and again

Chorus 1:
Maybe it would be better if I did it now to let you see
Maybe finally you’d realize there are so many more like me
Then maybe you’d get around to helping to set them free
So set them free
Won’t you care to set them free?

Verse 2:
Not my fire
And not my rain
But of all of us together
Individually going insane

Chorus 2:
Maybe it will be better for the world if I suicide
Maybe this will stop you all from committing genocide
Then maybe you’d understand the things that people hide
So put it right
Won’t you care to put it right?

But whatever you say
You’ll have it your way
‘Cuz you can’t even see me
You can’t even see me
Until I go away
So forget that I said it
Forget that I said it
Til I go away
