Lullaby for a Nihilist

If ignorance is bliss
and suffering is pointless
how do we know anything at all?
how can we learn anything at all?

Now if you hold me close
will you know me better?
tho we know full well
how it smarts should we fall
when we fall

If everything that ends
is only a beginning
how do we do anything at all?
how can we feel anything at all?

Now if I hold you close
won’t you feel my heartbeat?
tho we know full well
how it smarts should it stop
when it stops

There’s nothing new to say
There’s courage in your silence
so why say anything at all?
How can we mean anything at all?

But if you speak your mind
the words cannot (w)ring false
tho we know full well
just how smart we think we are
and aren’t we all?
