Even for the kindest hearts
Our horror is someone else's comedy
And rather than cry over all the cruel jokes
I decided to tell my story
It might take me ten more years and
I'll bring you to tears when it's done
But survival in all seriousness is
Fucking hilarious
Bar none
If you're blind to the comedy
Of your own insanity
You have bigger things to cry about
This is why
I never want to lose my sense of humour
I already lost my mind
And since this story is mine
I get the last laugh every time
