Someone awaiting death with open arms.

Any moment now my life will end

Any moment now an angel G-d will send

I stand and wait with open arms

For death to come but not to harm


The little I have left, my anger my guilt

My legacy my life that I have built

To re-take a borrowed existence

That compare to no time and distance


Here he comes dressed in black, ready for fight

A gleaming knife catching the early mornings light

This is it, all that I have been living for

I fall to my knees and on to the floor
