What you got, they can't deny it
Can't sell it, or buy it
Walk on, walk on
You stay safe tonight
Are you joking?
No, really. Are you?
Self-preservation wins, hands down, every time. The rest doesn't matter if you're not still alive. What's your alternative here, getting forgiveness from someone as you die in their arms? Please. Overrated, romantic claptrap.
You do what you need to do to get by. To take care of yourself, because no one else is going to take care of you. You live, you fight, you breathe, you sigh, you walk on.
Sometimes people think you might need to ask for forgiveness for the things you've done, but don't buy it. I mean, you do something malicious, maybe you should, but if it's a choice between those two? Between self-preservation or forgiveness. You take care of yourself and let the next life worry about forgiveness.
Besides, who says there is forgiveness anyway? Who says it exists? That it's possible? That someone can forgive? And even if they say they have? They don't forget. They never forget. They're always wary. Always watching for the next time you're going to do them wrong.
There is no such thing as forgiveness.
