Track Name: To Be Of No Consequence
Living was not a choice,
And yet, dying, they guilt-tripped out of me.
We create and destroy,
Trying to forge some destiny.

"March on, you don't have to aim it;
Headstrong, as long as you claim it, make
friends and lovers and enemies:
They're ingenuous, so it seems,
so why can't you be?"

Coerced to interact: Make friends, lovers, enemies.
Never signed this contract, yet that's the way it has to be.

"Chin up, cease this indulgence:
No ore's down in the doldrums.
Be the person you have to be,
find how to make it come naturally.
That's not pain; it's only existence,
fortitude lives in persistence.
One mere measure of despondency,
Let peer pressure set you free."

Living was not a choice,
And yet, dying, they guilt-tripped out of me.

Move on, please disremember.
Take on the other contenders, I'm
through with feigning a competence,
I want to be of no consequence.
Feel brief, unnecessary,
Pale, weak, no debonair,
I want to be of no consequence.
I want to be of no consequence.

Tear me out of the pictures.
Blot my name from all of the scriptures,
I'm not cognisant through common sense.
I want to be of no consequence.

Feel brief, unnecessary,
Frail, weak, no debonair,
I want to be of no consequence.
I want to be of no consequence.
