Would anyone care if I dropped off the earth,

Would anyone shed a tear?

Several sobs, a few gasps, some chairs at my funeral, 

Then I'm just simply not here. 

Would anyone care if I ended my life, 

Would anyone? What about you?

You claim that you may, and you may for a month, 

But no one would care after two.

Would anyone care if I cut out my throat,

And hung it up high in a tree?

You can twist your head from the blood and the gore,

But you can't turn away from the screams.
