Fade Away by Jamie Marx
 

fade away

 

I’m not feeling grateful today
Everybody go away
I just wanna live my life and die in peace and then fade away

Look at all the wars we’ve won
Killing people looks like fun
I’m sure they all deserved it
Wake me when the damage is done

All the hate that’s on your screen
Get your kicks from cruelty
Doesn’t matter whose whole day you ruin
Another modern tragedy

So I’m not feeling grateful today
Everybody go away
I just wanna live my life and die in peace and then fade away

The tv keeps me up all night
The pills I take ain’t workin’ right
I’m sure we all deserved it
Livin’ life in black and white

Look at everyone in pain
Anger standing in for shame
Close your eyes I’m sure that you can hear it
Easier to play the game

So I’m not feeling grateful today
Everybody go away
I just wanna live my life and die in peace
We’re guaranteed one last release
You can tune me out I’ve said my piece
And I’ll fade away
