after we’re gone who will breathe the earth we lost we leave nothing but our thoughts and memories beneath the dust so when this body fails to mend and all my demons they come crashing in will i start to begin or will i fade away with them and in the afterlife, tell me we’ll be fine in the afterlife, tell me we’ll be fine and in the afterlife, tell me we’ll be fine in the afterlife and in the afterlife, tell me we’ll be fine in the afterlife, tell me we’ll be fine and in the afterlife, tell me we’ll be fine in the afterlife so when this body fails to mend and all the demons they come crashing in will we start to begin or will we fade away with them and in the afterlife, tell me we’ll be fine in the afterlife, tell me we’ll be fine and in the afterlife, tell me we’ll be fine in the afterlife
