I just remembered I'm a nihilist,
and it's bringing me down.
You can't prove to me that we exist,
and it's bringing me down.

Lately everything's been politics, and I can't be bothered. I'm sick of all the he-said-she-said, and all the back-and-forth. Looking for reasons; ignoring objectivity, everyone has an agenda. I wonder if it's worth it! I wonder if anything even matters.

I've been talking about theology with a pack of believers who want to shove off the burden of proof,
and I can't get through to them. They want to talk philosophy, but don't get the rules of logic. They've never heard of existentialism, so I'm delving in conversations from the past.

Everything is relative,
and it's all about perspective.
Maybe this is all a daydream,
and it's bringing me down.
