Not your waking up or going to bed

Not the means you get your daily bread

Today you’re here, tomorrow you’re not

Makes you wonder life's true worth

We create stories to give our life purpose

Of gods and entities that will one day draw us close

You’re alive today and lifeless tomorrow

The only thing guaranteed is the feeling of sorrow

By the people who now understand that nothing is guaranteed

Not your life or theirs, or those of their seed

For Shabba
