Swallow a pill.
Fake a smile.
Repeat.
Swallow a pill.
Fake a smile.
Repeat.
The endless motions of my life
No hopes of ending
No hopes of really feeling happy
Swallow a pill.
Fake a smile.
Repeat.
Continuous proceedures
It still doesn't work
Increase the dosage
Swallow a pill.
Fake a smile.
Repeat.
Repeating into eternity
Like a car in a tunnel, looking for the light
Hoping to leave the dark space
Swallow a pill.
Fake a smile.
Repeat.
They still don't work
It's my fault
Continue no matter what
Swallow a pill.
Fake a smile.
Repeat.
The endless task needs to stop
I forget
I let go
Fake a smile.
Repeat.
Maybe I should just let things go.
Force a smile no matter how fake.
Repeat.
It's not working.
They see right through me.
Maybe I'll try something else.
Don't fake a smile.
Don't force a laugh.
Suddenly, they see me.
But now it's my fault, not the pill.
