"It's Okay"

And there we were deteriorating.

Where were you when we were degenerating.

And here you lack some empathy.

And our corrupt hearts are worsening, regressing.


Go ahead and mourn with other people.

You're not the only one feeling so degraded.

Go ahead and cry on someone else's shoulders.

Because we are obviously not, that's debated.


Let's lapse back these hours that you aren't giving us.

Revert those days when we felt betrayed.

And backslide the weeks where we clenched and waited.

For you to say to us that "it's okay."
