Song Lyrics: Faith in Fallacy

“VERSE 1

Read more sad endings today

I wonder if we will be next

All our steps are clumsy

We barely evade our prophecy

Living day to day

That’s so short-sighted they claim

Yet, what’s the point in planning

Will there ever be a new dawning?

The almighty and their pseudo care

Shaming what they never experienced

CHORUS

All we can do is have hope

Work for a better tomorrow

Yet, I distrust this belief

It is veiling a myth

Disciple of patience’s school of thought

That my pessimism claims is false

While all my life goes by

And I can’t even say goodbye

This is just faith in fallacy

VERSE 2

Distract yourself with TV or books

Escapism always feels good

Study hard, it might save us

Our illusions can’t turn again into ash

Despite things rarely ending right

We hold on to our inner light

Nurtured to be resilient

No matter how hard the fall gets

Sometimes we do see spirits and angels

Are they really the family’s ancient?

CHORUS

All we can do is have hope

Work for a better tomorrow

Yet, I distrust this belief

It is veiling a myth

Disciple of patience’s school of thought

That my pessimism claims is false

While all my life goes by

And I can’t even say goodbye

This is just faith in fallacy

BRIDGE

But mama says

Don’t worry

Everything will be fine

Maybe not today

Perhaps next time

We struggle now

Tomorrow we won’t, alright

Others have it worse

Ought to choose hope above all

Don’t eat that

It is for the youngest child

Less for you

Forced diet might be good

Toddler is hungry

Give him water, it is fine

Sleep tight

Don’t push each other much

OUTRO

So used to this past rhetoric

Embedded in me like a memory chip

Feel guilty for now being alright

When the rest of us still ain’t

But there is faith

And it is on me

They believe in it

Even if I doubt it

Climbing is a fallacy

No other resort sadly

Can’t give up

Must push up

I promise

To keep fighting

Even if I think

This is just faith in fallacy”
