bad joke

watch time tick away
another breath that's wasted
losing touch a little more each day
though you don't see it
this is just a bad joke dressed up as living
this me is a lie with a plastic smile
you've never known who I really am
and never tried to find it

swallow another feeling
another tiny murder
don't even notice it's me I'm killing
I can't see it
this is just a bad joke dressed up as living
this me is a lie with a crooked smile
you've never known who I really am
and never tried to find it

and I want to feel this
but I've forgotten how to
and I want to write this
but I've forgotten why
and all I know is
this must be what it's like to die

sing along a little longer
play along a little more
fading away from me a little farther
though no one sees it
this is a sad joke guessing at living
I am a lie with a broken smile
I've never known who I really am
and don't know how to find it
