Why Should I Die?

-

I don't see a way to cluck like a chicken yet

Yet

So when am I crawling on my hands and knees

Looking for a place to pee

I would greatly like to know

Why such a place is so hard to find

-

As I'm struggling to lay such an egg out of me

Me?

I just want whatever I'm wanting so bad

Booking a flight to Paris

Don't sound appealing to me

But I will stand on my own two feet

-

While I am cracking up

While nothing else matters

But running away from all

Running from you

Running from she

Running from me

I could run myself to the ground

Not able to come back around

-

I lifted my face just to see the rain fall

Fall

Like the rain had nowhere else to go, these days

Listen to my throat get slit

And as my head rolls off, dead

I can't win the race without my head

-

The world comes crashing down for no reason, "at all"

All?

Ev'ry girl I fall for drops me "like a fly"

Feels just like the cows grazing by

But I can gouge my eyes out now

-

While I am cracking up

While nothing else matters

But running away from all

Running fro you

Running from she

Running from me

I could run myself to the ground

Not able to come back around

Maybe eat the cheese I have found

It's nice to know the world is fucked up

Anyway you look at it

It's always easier to just give up

Give up and die

Give up and die

But if I die

__then nothing I'll be

Dead inside an endless sea

Lifeless me

__and dead to all

For taking the life

__that belongs to me

-

( electronic solo )

-

I'm not here just to die tonight and not live on

On?

I could break my neck in many dif'rent ways

But I would be dead that way

And dead is what I don't want

I would not make it around the bend

-

The thin air speaks to me tonight for no reason

Sun

Is something I could live without in my life

No worms crawling in my mind

Just rather plan on living

Where would I be if I could not breathe?

-

While I am cracking up

While nothing else matters

But running away from all

Running from you

Running from she

Running from me

I could run myself to the ground

Not able to come back around

Maybe eat the cheese I have found

Anyway you look at it

It's always easier to just give up

Give up and die

Give up and die

But if I die

__then nothing I'll be

Dead inside an endless sea

Lifeless me

__and dead to all

For taking the life

__that belongs to me

-

( electronic outro and then fade out )
