After the wreckage
June 21st, 2000
I can't leave this funeral that never seems to end
I can't leave this funeral that, in a way, never started
And all I know is that I have been doing all of the mourning
And is that the way it goes?
Is someone mourning for you for too long
And you, the deceased, didn't know anyone would care
And you, the deceased, didn't know they were dead
So was it just me
Do I feel this alone
Does your spirit rise after the wreckage
And you watch from above
And see how everyone reacts
And see how I cry
And see how I suffer
Is this what you're doing to me?
And now, after the funeral,
And I have to clean up the room
And I have to put awasy the flowers
And I have to escort the people out
Because they don't deserve to be here
Because they don't even clean up the mess
I should know by now
It's still me
It's only me
Is that the way it goes?
