Day 5, I think?

idyllic, paradise day by the water

Dear Amnesia is like that friend

who’s very friendly to your face

but constantly gossips about you behind your back.

So yeah, sure,

Amnesia’s got a nice reflection

to help you ignore the things that pain you,

the things keeping you up at night questioning what on earth you’re doing here.

“Look, dearie, just soldier on, head down, take it all a day at a time,

and it’ll be okay.”

Amnesia’s got a nice reflection

to distract you from the fair faces in the rearview

you once knew

but they’re all on Amnesia’s side of the story

not yours

and they will stab you in the back

right when you forget that they’re looming.
