  • Everybody dies
    Surprise, surprise
    We tell each other lies
    Sometimes we try
    To make it feel like
    We might be right
    We might not be alone
    Be alone

    Everybody dies
    That's what they say
    And maybe in a couple hundred years
    They'll find another way
    I just wonder why
    You'd wanna stay
    If everybody goes
    You'd still be alone

    I don't wanna cry, some days I do
    But not about you
    It's just a lot to think about
    The world I'm used to
    The one I can't get back
    At least not for a while
    I sure have a knack
    For seeing life more like a child
    It's not my fault
    It's not so wrong to wonder why
    Everybody dies
    And when will I?

    You oughta know
    That even when it's time
    You might not wanna go
    But it's okay to cry
    And it's alright to fold
    But you are not alone
    You are not unknown Writer/s: Billie Eilish O'Connell, Finneas Baird O'Connell

  • Piper from San Franciscothis song is whack, when we walk around frisco we sing and play the drums on cars. we can usually find dirty needles in the street which we wash out at the park, I think about these lyrics and sing about how infinite we all are, "shooting up in the alley, smoking ice in the park, I drink coffee on Tuesday but only after dark", love is a battle field, I heard that before, hmm bop.
