Doesn't Matter

  • I'm lingering on when they kiss
    Leaning towards this abyss
    And of lately the only people I can stare
    Are the unraveled ones with their hands laying bare
    But their hands are numb and empty
    Their dull silence soothes me
    Loud whispers in my back as if I couldn't hear
    Thought I left ghosts behind but they're just coming near

    It doesn't matter, does it
    If I know any exit
    If I believe in god and if god does exist
    If I believe in god and if god does exist

    Rage as a fabric, through and through
    Like that gaze they used to do
    'Cause the suicidal thoughts that are still in my head
    Gives her that awful side-smile when I lay in bed

    It doesn't matter, does it
    If I know any exit
    If I believe in god and if god does exist
    If I believe in god and if god does exist

    She's barely feeding, but she'll deny
    Ribbon-legged, she passes by
    Until she surrenders in the midst of the street
    And the guys simply stare but continue to eat

    It doesn't matter, does it
    If I know any exit
    If I believe in god and if god does exist
    If I believe in god and if god does exist

    It doesn't matter, does it
    If I know any exit
    If I believe in god and if god does exist
    If I believe in god and if god does exist

    And if I am cast out 'cause I wanted some more
    And if this guy dances way too close to the shore
    And if I could just push this door chalked on the wall
    And if after the void there's somewhere else to fall

    Forget I said it
    I soliloquize
    A stinging nettle
    Their hands on their thighs

    Run if you stole a shard of sunlight, yeah, yeah
    Don't ever tell them, I've got your back, yeah, yeah
    Choking to tears with shards of sunlight, yeah, yeah
    Run if you stole a shard of sunlight, yeah, yeah

    Run if you stole a shard of sunlight (oh, run)
    Don't ever tell them, I've got your back (save all you can)
    Choking to tears with shards of sunlight (oh, you won't be found)
    Run if you stole a shard of sunlight (oh, and never come back)

    It doesn't matter, does it
    If I know any exit
    If I believe in god and if god does exist
    If I believe in god and if god does exist

    It doesn't matter, does it
    If I know any exit
    If I believe in god and if god does exist
    If I believe in god and if god does exist

    God, god, god, god
    God, god, god, god
    God, god, god, god
    God, god, god Writer/s: Heloise Letissier
