humanity’s last breath

It’s cigarette smoke clouding our lungs
We breathe no longer to survive
We inhale and exhale so we feel alive
But make life a little shorter

There is no healthy addiction
We’re addicted to holding on
The need to dig our claws into time
Is what keeps making us fall behind

Suddenly the sun rises over empty fields
Suddenly the forests are left silent
Suddenly the moonshine has no anthem
Suddenly the ocean’s just pale, lonely, light

It’s humanity’s last breath
And I choose to breathe it

Without you.
