Would You Be Impressed?

This song is by Toh Kay and appears on the album Streetlight Lullabies (2011).

This song is a cover of "Would You Be Impressed?" by Streetlight Manifesto.
Would you be upset
If I told you we were dying?
And every cure they gave us was a lie?
Oh, they mean it when they say we're dead and doomed

And every single symptom brings us closer to the tomb
And who will take
The credit for this swift impending fall
Because it's not my fault

Would you be impressed
If I said that the dead would help us counting
Every single moment that we waste our time?
All the time we're spending vaccinating this disease

I just get dizzy when I think of all the ways
We try to hide our maladies
We wine, we dine and everything is fine
Because it's not my fault

Now you're upset
Because you finally got the notion
That everything you had is spinning down the drain
Oh, do you mean it when you beg and pray and plead?

Your "Give it to me, give it to me, give it to me, give it to me
All those things we need"
And what, pray tell, will you whimper when your number will be called?
You'll say "It's not my fault"

So go now, the others, they'll await you
And every single one among the lot of you
Will have your turn
Ai, ai, ai, and oh, oh, oh

Like moths that fly into the flame
It always ends up so you scream
"Not me! Take anybody else!
Because it's not my fault!"

I had a dream last night
Where everyone was trying
Subconsciously I knew it was a lie
And when I woke, I knew that it was time to pray

To make amends before the end, before my judgement day
I looked around
I stood alone and I knew what I had to say
I said "It's all my fault"
