Death Wish - Poem by Patrick Shields

I Wish Someone Would Come Up Behind Me and Blow Me Away
Just Put The Barrel To My Head Pull The Trigger and End My Life
Than They'd Lay Me In A Casket and That’s Where I'd Stay
Because Everything’s Wrong and Nothing Will Ever Be Right

Why Do We Slave Away Each Day
We Hope For A Better Day Tomorrow But It Won't Be
We Work Our Fingers To The Bone For Minimal Pay
If Anything It Will Be Worse Tomorrow For You and Me

Why Should I Want To Stay Here
Why Can't I just Drift Away Into Eternal Night
When All This World Offers Is Depression and Fear
So I'll Let The Night Consume Me and Drain Me Of All Life

Most People Dread The Grave
I Don't I Welcome It With Open Arms
It's Something I Look Forward To Something I Crave
When It's My Time I Won't Scream For Help Or Sound Any Alarms

When The Lord Of Death Comes I Will Be Filled With Joy
I Will Thank Him For Coming To Take Me Away
Like A Kid At Christmas Getting A New Toy
I'll Be Happy To Hear That In This World I'll No Longer Have To Stay

But Until Than I'll Have To Wait For The Being In The Black Cloke
I'll Pray To God Every Night To Let Me Be Free
That Day Blood Will Run From My Mouth and On It I'll Choke
Than Never Again Will I Breath Or See
