Because I could not stop for Death

Because I could not stop for Death
I avoided him all the same
So every time I heard His name
I blushed with guilty shame.

The dreams and goals of all the youth
hath fallen to decay
No matter how much you cry or pray
We're damned another day.

So abandon all hope, ye simple fools,
We're coming to an end.
Thy broken hearts shall never mend
Even if you date her friend.

Humanity's a funny thing
Once you start to think of it.
Most society is most unfit,
so why don't they just quit?
