Ashes for Your Journey (ii)

But he himself had given up
So instead he offered them
This bitter cup: You’re gonna die
We’re all gonna die
Could be twenty years, could be tonight
And lately I have been wondering
Why
We go to so much trouble
To postponeĀ the unavoidable
And prolong the pain of being alive

– excerpt of Priests and Paramedics, David Bazan
