People That Care

from by Evan Kelley

lyrics

The people that I care about know I died days ago in my bedroom at home in the middle of the night.
Now all of you people will tell me and my family that you are sad to see me go and that death came to soon, but I'm confused...

...as to why we're talking, we didn't talk before, it seems kind of strange that all you people who barely saw me would tell my family that you miss my smiling face.

All of you people I knew in my high school days swore to God that you would never speak to me again...
...but when death gripped it's icy hands around my neck you were the first to pretend that we were ever friends.

Now I see what's important to you is not what happened to me and that's just how it goes...
...in a society where completely fake sympathy will impress everyone you know.

I won't try to force these feelings just so I can feel something at all.
You still haven't learned your lesson, you still haven't learned what life's about.
How long do you think it will take you to realize...
...that someones life has meaning even before they die.
