Where were you when I was alone,

sleeping in an abandoned house with no money or even a working phone?

 

Where were you when I found the door you left open,

tripped and fell into the pool that I eventually drowned in?

 

Where were you when I needed help and was dying?

You didn't pay attention to the phone I was calling? 

Were you even trying?

 

Where were you going when

you were driving drunk and cut off the person in the next lane?

People are calling you a "killer",

is that what you want? Are you insane?

 

Where were you when I was doing laundry?

I needed six dollars but bearly had any loose change

 

Where were you when I was getting mugged out in the pouring rain?

Oh! That's right! You were in a plane while I was dying in vain.

 

But where were you when I needed advice?

I could've used your words as tools to build the weapons needed to fight for my life

 

Where were you decided to stop thinking twice?

Oh!? You started another family? Well, b*tch, have a nice life

I'm dead now. I've been dead for three years.

I bet when you find out, you won't even breakout in tears.

 

I think your existence in general is more than a sin

Death is a race that nobody wants to win

but if I ever come back, I promise you 1st place

you'll know how serious I am when you see me face to face

 

But before I leave, I just want to know

Where are you? And how far will you go?

 

This is a message to all you deserters

If there's a prison in hell, I hope your trapped in it
