the world around me is dead

it’s happening
it’s happening
it’s happening

the presence in frigidity
the aura that has no view
the power in perplexity

i can ignore
i must ignore
i will ignore

them aren’t too beautiful
them aren’t too sane
them aren’t too perfect

i’ve wanted to go
i need to stay
there’s a big transformation

i can wait
i can wait
i can wait
