It still hurts.

5 years.

It still hurts.

Just stay busy.

It still hurts.

Find a hobby.

It still hurts.

Help the needy.

It still hurts.

This should be easy.

It still hurts.

Stop talking about it.

It still hurts. 

Why aren't you over it?

It still hurts.

Don't make it about you.

And all this time,

with a sense of sadness in the air.
These walls are unfamiliar,

piece by piece,

kicking down my walls, 

you invade my sleep. 


1 sheep, 2 sheep,

3 sheep, 4 sheep

hiding dark secrets,

did you forget to keep? 


Long sumer nights

but has anything changed?

a sheep is a sheep,

all of you are the same.


1, 2 

3, 4

pick your favorite part,

take a little more. 


You devour what's accessible,
