"Burry My Body"

-

I told my brain to "take a nape"

It's been thinking too many thoughts

__like that

The wheel's spinning crazy

__in a daze

I'm not gonna complain

__oh wait

I already am

-

The mourning I dripped into a fog

Was only a dream

__'cause I've a tank

It's jam packed with juice

__what's it to you?

The barrels of laughter

__win my smile

But it's not time

-

I heard the devils laugh

Their giggles were like whispers

__to my ears

And I let go of myself

__to face all my fears

I lifted the noise

__up on high

And I began to die

-

When they burned my carcass in a lake

The fire seemed to melt my afterlife

__in my head

And I begin to feel the pain

__of not existing

The whole world was gone

__I couldn't see a thing

With a burnt brain
