why ask
why not it goes with this night
so will it ever stop
will it always be this hard
there will always be a jar of ash
there will always be an unfit mind
there will always be a lonely son
there will always be a humiliated little girl
why ask
is there any reason
why ask
if it'll just let up
why ask
is there any reason
why ask
if it'll just let up
up up up up
there will always be a headless neck
there will always be happiness
there will always be a handless wrist to crush
there will always be a hopeful heart to disrespect
why ask
is there any reason
why ask
if it'll just let up
why ask
is there any reason
why ask
if it'll just let up
up up up up

    General Commentthis is probably the song off of La Foret that i identify with the most. because a lot of the time this is how i feel.

    like i will never shake my depression or the dark thoughts that are always around or the uncertainty of wether life will ever be easier.

    so when i sing this song, and say "so will it ever stop? will it always be this hard?" it's like i am really asking myself these questions, and yes, the answer always seems to be the same: "why ask, if it'll just let up, up, up, up, up"

    General CommentBeing the consummate worrywart myself, T think I can identify: There will always be something to depress you in this world, something horrible to worry about ultimately. But sometimes, things do, for a little while, let up.

    General CommentTime makes things worse. If you don't fix things right away, you'll never fix them, and they'll eat at you forever.

    General CommentUP UP UP

    I got this song from a guy as a "hint hint" indirect message, and it was tastefully unseating.
