Let's Sleep Forever

Slit my wrists and hope to die

Not for one more second do I want to have open eyes

Leave this world eternally

Sleep forever, oh so blissfully

No more worries to keep me up

No reason to give a fuck

Just take my soul and leave me dead

An empty vessel will replace instead

I have no reason to stay

The woman I loved has gone away

She's nowhere to be found

But I know she sleeps safe and sound

Her life was the price she paid

She'd been infatuated with a razorblade

I walk around, just an empty shell

Amble mindlessly through this hell

I just ask that I be taken too

I can't live anymore, not like this

I'm done, that's it I'm through...
