Nothingness Blues

In hell or heaven
Here on earth
What you're given's
what you're worth

You're given your Life
You're gifted your Love
What's Taken, for Granted
Gets taken away

When there's nothing to prove
And there's nothing to lose
that's all you're left with,
The Nothingness blues.

Some will leave,
Some will grieve
Some return,
and Some will burn

From nothing, we came,
so it's all returned.
All you take with you,
is what you have learned.
