Death by music! 
What a glorious way to go! 
Letting the sounds consume you 
Ripping apart your chest, 
Allowing all the pain to flow out 
Sucked up into the tones 
The harmonious major and minor sequences 
Forming cords to pleasure the ear of the world 

The events would crescendo 
Crushing your ears 
Drums intensifying, beating down your back 
Everything building until the coda 
Ah, the bittersweet ending of the coda 
Everything ending 
Making way for the seconds of silence 
After this piece, 
The peace in the concert hall, this world 
Will eerily make the death seem worth the practice 
dc al fine 
One more round 
One more time to make things right 

Punctuate others worth, mercaitto their essence 
Pianissimo about the reason for leaving this way 
Playing with the heart of a million musicians 
The maestro's hand is the metronome 
Conducting your prewritten death 
Interpreting its language 
Adding creativity to make its beauty your own 
The signs point to the end 
The last phrase will be a killer 
Break more than a leg 
Break free of life 

The end is the climax 
Everything is building to this
Staggered breathing, holding on 
Fermata, just to let you feel your soul leave 
To savor the last sounds crushing you 
Beating you down 
Tantalizing your every nerve sensory 
Until the cutoff
