I’m off to Dignitas next week
I’m going to put myself to sleep
I’ve finally found my peace at last
This crazy world can kiss my ass.
I never thought this day would come
I’ve been through hell and back and some
I lost my wife and all my money
It made me angry and sent me funny.
I can’t begin to explain the pain
The depth of hell the guilt and shame
The torn apart the quest for blame
The broken heart the evil game.
The sleepless nights and all the thinking
The panic attacks the endless drinking
The don’t give a damn unwashed and stinking
The big I am that’s finally sinking.
The constant hatred that lies within
The cursed and fated in search of sin
The lost and sedated who just give in
The tossed and berated who never win.
The common man who stands no chance
The beautiful world a fleeting glance
The loneliness the solitary dance
The constant torment the crave romance.
The victim mentality the split personality
The suffering and insanity the plight of humanity
The cause and effect the failure to protect
The lives we infect dictate and dissect.
The ever illusive answer the ravaging devouring cancer
The cruel heartless chancer, the take control romancer
The final curtain appears and finally it’s all made clear
No more worry or fear as the end of life draws near.
Me like a billion others, the friends sisters and brothers
Uncles fathers and mothers, husbands wives and lovers
We all have one thing in common
Our bodies will soon be rotten
In god we love and trust as our journey turns to dust.
I’m closing now for the final time
Who knows what lies ahead
I’d love to come back to tell you all
What it’s really like to be dead.
Good bye my wife good bye my life
Good bye to all my friends
Love and peace to you all
I hope we meet again!
