Dead to the World

Somebody,

Rip my heart out;

Anybody!

Set it on fire,

And if it hasn't died,

Chop it into pieces.

Just to let them float away.

 

No use for this soul;

Please, take that too;

It'd serve you better;

You'd get much use.

I have no life left,

To use such things;

I'm death on two feet.

 

I would've said goodbye,

But I was afraid

That I'd bother you.

Please take care,

As I lay here;

Alive, yet dead.

Too dead for the world,

Too alive to die.

 

Someday,

It will be my time.
