track 2 from the upcoming EP "suicidal"

lyrics

i saw the light drain from your eyes
into a gaze of malaise and spite
"we were bred for nothing but to die--
what more remains for you and i?"
i load up with whisky every night
but six shots to the head won't fix my life
ten thousand ways, all of which i've tried
put ten thousand hours in a worthless lie

i'm sorry, my love, i'm just...tired
ol' david's run out of giants to fight
so load the lead in the .45
and pull the trigger, put the dog down tonight

please don't cry...

i just hope i made the right choice
she's better off without me anyways
the world is better off without the burden of my breath upon it
surely, it is better this way
better than to suffer through one more fuckin' day
better for all of you
better for all of you if i just left

just how do you expect me to go on?
when there is nothing to live for?
nothing to look forward to
nothing to see
nothing to do
how do you expect me to go on without you by my side?
why did you have to go
why did you have to go
why did you have to go?

the consequences of a single misplaced finger
a single misplaced thought
will never truly have to be reckoned with until
my heart is lain upon the scales
heavier than infinite feathers
it crashes through the floor
and draws a path to hell

but how could hell be worse than this?
how could hell be worse than this?
how could hell be worse than this?
how could hell be worse than this?
how could hell be worse than this?

my lord

we know what we are

but know not what we may be

forlorn sounds
from a place
beyond words

we are not actually from denmark. please read more shakespeare
