I know I'm a little superficial
That the words I speak have little meaning
But when I'm talking to you
Does it really matter?

Oh yes! It matters a lot
One wrong word, and just like that
As a bomb discharges
The connection severs

Happiness... It's a deceitful emotion
For one to experience joy
Another must feel sorrow
Emotionalism at its very worst

As such an explosion derails a moment passed
One always wonders
In retrospect
"Was it really that clever to have opened my mouth?"

For that one word
A single phrase even
Could catalyze the destruction of what once was
What today could not shed light upon once more...
