1.8 – Cassandra – And Then There Were None

Song: Endless Forms Most Beautiful by Trevor Yuile (Orphan Black)

survivor’s guilt ˑ never never call me brave ˑ nobody wants this

There were six.

      (how long before the whispers shattered the glass)

And then there were four.

      (how long before the deaths were etched in ink)

And then there were three.

      (how long before you left me alone, half of a whole)

And then there was me.

      (how long before the center cannot hold?)

There were six.

(dolls in a row)

And then there were four.

(bodies on the floor.)

And then there were three.

(holder of all their hopes)

And then there was me.

(alone, alone, alone)

There were six

(I had three brothers)

And then there were four

(they died and I did nothing)

And then there were three

(they never cared at all)

And then there was me.

—-

And then there were two, and there were none

And still no one is satisfied

-nobody wants to be the last left standing.
