Why Can't I Fuckin' Die?

-

Drum roll rationalization

Big thinking got me acting stupid

The funniness that comes and doesn't go

Where does it come from?

Why won't it leave?

Hittin' my funny bone

Don't even make me laugh

I'm passed out without a reason

I can't complain about my stupidity

Because that would be pessimistic

So I jump in front of shots fired

Hoping a bullet will hit me

'Cause I'm just tired of livin'

But all of them miss

Now I still have to live

And it's making me sick!

But I'm doin' it

Like I'm doin' time

Still don't know why it don't feel right

No matter how hard I try

To sit with my feelings

And not run and hide

The suffering lasts forever

That's all that God shows me

But if I could just cheat life

And just die

My! how better I would feel

just bein' dead

But I don't get to do that

Not today

Today I have to live

And suffer

When will this fuckin' world be over?

I just wanna get off this ride

Why can't I fuckin' die?

Why?

Why?

Why can't I fuckin' die?
