Nihilism for Romantics
The hardest thing is waking up on a day that doesn’t matter
Which I guess is all of them, yeah
But as a romantic, some of them should matter, right?
You know, like they do in the movies
Unfortunately, life is a whole lot of waking up on days we know won’t matter
And hoping they’re ones we just think won’t matter
It’s easy to understand our collective insignificance during a daily routine
Only when big stuff is happening do we not want to think about it
But we’re forced to command our collective insignificance during a daily routine
Only when big stuff is happening are we freed from this prison and doubt it
This is the precisely pitiful paradoxical prison of the nihilistic romantic who just for the sake of living wishes they had less opinions on the subject.
