It doesn’t matter what your name is

You’ll be unknown

The neighborhood doesn’t know you

And so what if they do you will be gone

We are back down underneath appearances surrounded in facts

Importance scale negative no impact

Admit it

It doesn’t matter what your name is

Just admit it

It doesn’t matter what your name is

+

Just some person around your town

Connections loose untied think how

Your absence trivial

Go ahead and say those lines

The ones saying everyone matters but they don’t nice try

Say things will get better tomorrow

Ignore patterns showing high probabilty

Tomorrow is more than likely

Same shit as the day before

=

Maybe all the talk of holding on

Is to stop someone from leaving for the unknown

Why do you hate us so much

Asking us to stay and suffer while other climb up

It doesn’t matter what our names are

All together unknown

.

After the short messages of our deaths

In the newspaper behind a bunch of advertisements

Maybe then neighbors will start to search

When payments are missed people feel so hurt

Crying tears of sadness how will they get paid

Family cries because suicide means no insurance to save

Paying the price for living no affordable graves

+

If you leave money then you’ll be missed

Because you could have made more to give upon the rich

Without it why were you allowed to breathe

We have a face but it’s just temporary

Die today next day time limited memory

Eventually no one will know you were alive

Some of us are already there don’t want to be but hey death is life

=

Maybe all the talk of holding on

Is to stop someone from leaving for the unknown

Why do you hate us so much

Asking us to stay and suffer while other climb up

It doesn’t matter what our names are

All together unknown

Unknown.
