I sit in this tub of water with confusion and chaos
Steam dancing beautifully to a song in my head
Don’t be afraid to die is the chorus to this song
At the end of the final verse will be no flowers
In this little tub I’ve filled my whole world
How is this possible I wonder to myself
Putting the cigarette to my lips, I embrace
What am I embracing? Only the nicotine knows
Can the world see what I see across on the shelf?
A reflection of myself or the man I used to be?
Is it true that real men never die? Or was I something else?
No longer remember though it doesn’t matter
This warm water feels good on my body sinking lower
Cigarette smoke blending in with the bath steam
Wish I could float up with, no shackles or weight
I guess I’ll wait just a little bit longer for the kick
Feeling it kick in, hazy cloud like a distant dream
And I still hear it telling me don’t be afraid to die
Confusion and chaos my only company in this dream
They sit calling me a coward but it’s my time
I’ve spent it all, done it all and I have nothing left
So why not embrace the tragedy than hold on to my sanity
I’d like to wish you all peace. Such a Beautiful Death
