What awaits

Beyond this embrace,

After the moment

Has faded away?

When things go wrong

Will you stay?

Factor in feelings

And fumbled words

And what do we get?

A fucked up equation

With brackets of

Hidden agendas.

Multiply by delayed reactions,

Desperately scramble

To even it out —

Add and subtract

To this sad situation,

Make it all equal

By all accounts.

Divide by denial,

Throw in some hope

And what's the amount?

A fucked up equation

We can't figure out.
