This song was written about Justine from the movie "Melancholia" by Lars Von Trier.


I'm trudging in through this
Praying really hard
It's clinging to my legs
It's heavy to drag
I go out and smile so everyone can see
But nobody knows the pain i have in me

I cry
I smile

Needless to say I'm breaking the deal
I'm scared and alone my world is surreal

Kissing my husband
I can't feel a thing
Fucking a stranger
In my own wedding
Everyone's leaving, the morning is here
I tried to be happy, the star disappear

I cry
I lie

I'm not a fool don't tell me you care
I've been down in hell, there's nobody there

The earth is evil
We're all alone
