I'll be in a coffin sooner than I wanna be If I don't get some shit to help me see The struggles I'm gonna see. I'm altering the free things That are here for us all.

Thank you for not thinking of me.

I would move a mountain To heal your pain. I would take it all And not complain If it could be in that bed, So torn and afraid. We share someone, The one that took your name And gave me life. She’s my mother. She’s your wife. You don’t deserve this at all, And it’s not alright.

Maybe it will all be better tomorrow. Maybe things won’t have to be this way. Maybe, at the edge of all of this sickness and sorrow, Is the dawn of some brighter day. I don’t feel like I can go on any longer. I don’t know just how to make this right. The pain and the strain of a loss of hope Getting only stronger Is strangling me ever so tight.
