When it's all said and done everybody dies
In this life ain't no happy endings
Only pure beginnings followed by years of sinning and fake repentance

from J. Cole – Runaway Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

We all have die, so no one gets a happy ending. We’re just given innocence at birth and then we sin, act as though we’ve learned from our sins, and then sin again.
