Nothing

NOTHING

I would destroy your world and laugh
for it means nothing.
I would slaughter your children and smile
for it means nothing.

Should I die on tomorrow's cross,
it means nothing;
whether I laugh or am in pain,
it means nothing.

Love and hate fade to nothing;
time and fate fade to nothing.
Every light fades to nothing;
every life fades to nothing.

I hold you in my heart's embrace
but it means nothing.
I hold a gun to my head
but it means nothing.

instrumental noise here...

It means nothing;
I feel nothing.
It means nothing;
I feel nothing.

Promise made is promise broken,
for it means nothing.
Punishment or crimes forgiven,
it all means nothing.

Love and hate fade to nothing;
time and fate fade to nothing.
Every light fades to nothing;
every life fades to nothing.

It means nothing;
I feel nothing.
It means nothing;
I feel nothing.

There is a part of me that knows of nihilistic despair. It's only a part of me. So I wrote this rough lyric even though I'd be unlikely to ever perform such a song. It means nothing, after all! :)
