If life isn’t a joke, why are we laughing?

Today, I did one of the hardest things I had to do. Initiate legal proceedings against someone I used to care about. Nothing will be sent for three days, but I doubt I will hear from this person to discuss the issue, lest actually mention they meant what they said about being repaid someday.

I really didn’t want to, but after replaying the past two years in my head, and with help from my friends, I did it, after promising I would not, but if this relationship has taught me anything, promises were clearly meant to be broken, and lying is the norm.

So, what does this mean? It means I move on, and someone faces a heap of legal issues, all because of lies an refusal to communicate. I tried. I really did.

Its time for another song. One of my favorite bands is actually MCR, and this song I have loved since it came out. If you should desire, give it a listen. If not, scroll on by.

Dead

Music and lyrics by My Chemical Romance, off the black parade album

And if your heart stops beating

I’ll be here wondering
Did you get what you deserve?
The ending of your life
And if you get to heaven
I’ll be here waiting, babe
Did you get what you deserve?
The end, and if your life won’t wait
Then your heart can’t take this

Have you heard the news that you’re dead?
No one ever had much nice to say
I think they never liked you anyway
Oh, take me from the hospital bed
Wouldn’t it be grand? It ain’t exactly what you planned.
And wouldn’t it be great if we were dead?
Oh, dead.

Tongue-tied and, oh, so squeamish
You never fell in love
Did you get what you deserve?
The ending of your life
And if you get to heaven
I’ll be here waiting, babe
Did you get what you deserve?
The end, and if your life won’t wait
Then your heart can’t take this

Have you heard the news that you’re dead?
No one ever had much nice to say
I think they never liked you anyway
Oh, take me from the hospital bed
Wouldn’t it be grand to take a pistol by the hand?
And wouldn’t it be great if we were dead?

And in my honest observation
During this operation
Found a complication in your heart
So long,
‘Cause now you’ve got (now you’ve got)
Maybe just two weeks to live
Is that the most the both of you can give?

One, two, one, two, three, four!

La, la, la, la, la!
La, la, la, la, la, la!
La, la, la, la, la, la, la!
Well come on,
La, la, la, la, la!
La, la, la, la, la, la!
La, la, la, la, la, la, la!
Oh, motherfucker,

If life ain’t just a joke (la, la, la, la, la!)
Then why are we laughing? (la, la, la, la, la, la!)
If life ain’t just a joke (la, la, la, la, la, la, la!)
Then why are we laughing?
If life ain’t just a joke (la, la, la, la, la!)
Then why are we laughing? (la, la, la, la, la, la!)
If life ain’t just a joke (la, la, la, la, la, la, la!)
Then why am I dead?
Dead!
