  • It’s funny they tell you life’s not fair
    And it becomes a phrase you don’t think about
    Until that one day you ask someone a question
    An honest question that deserves an honest answer
    And you are so gullible that you trust the answer
    Only to find out that it was a lie and that you
    Somehow get punished for trusting someone’s lie.
    The liar is friendly and offers kind things one day
    And the next you are slammed with harsh,
    Uncensored feelings that drag you
    Into a greater depression
    Than the one you were already in.
