Why Do I Gotta Die?


I'm tired of sittin'

__on my ass

Typing up old verses

I wanna stop

__and jot down more

____snew shit


__I'm pissed

'Reprise is taking over

__my name

Because I gotta

__die young


For some reason

By why? is it wrong?

6 years was not enough

I'm just getting better

But I'm slowing down the most

Just 2 years down

4 more to go?

I only hope so

But how can it be done

When my future is aching

To grab the wheel again

And be putttin' 'Reprise off?

It may take 6 more years

And I only got 5 more

__left to live

I'm tired of

__livin' on a hit list

I don't deserve to die

But, stll, that's where

__I'm headin'

A big past

And a future being stopped

From keeping
