Don’t ask me to move the world for you
Don’t pretend that you care
Stop giving me another chance
I’m not worth the effort
Do you think that I’m a good person?
I just sit here and pretend that I matter to the world
Do you feel like you owe my something?
No one owes me anything
I never did anything worth anyone’s time
I just fell in line
I’m not a light that shines
I’m not some hopeful end
Nor a tale to spin
I’m just another mind that went numb
And I’ll just be another body that goes limp
