CYANIDE Chapter Inc.  

Cyanide

Sleep and dream of this
Death angel’s kiss
Brings final bliss
Completely

Empty they say,
Death, won’t you let me stay?

Empty they say,
Death, hear me call your name,
Call your name…

…suicide
I’ve already died.
You’re just the funeral
I’ve been waiting for.

…cyanide
Living dead inside
Break this empty shell forever more.

Wait, wait patiently
Your death black wings
Unfolding sleep
Spreading o’er me

Empty they say,
Death, won’t you let me stay?

Empty they say,
Death, hear me call your name,
Call your name…

…suicide
I’ve already died.
You’re just the funeral
I’ve been waiting for.

…cyanide
Living dead inside
Break this empty shell forever more.

Say, is that rain or are they tears?
That has stained your concrete face for years.
The crying, weeping, shedding strife
Year after year, life after life.

An air of freshly broken ground.
A concrete angel lit right down
Upon the grave which swallows fast
It’s peace at last, peace at last!

Empty they say,
Death, won’t you let me stay?

Empty they say,
Death, hear me call your name,
Call your name…

…suicide
I’ve already died.
You’re just the funeral
I’ve been waiting for.

…cyanide
Living dead inside
Break this empty shell forever more.

To end this war
To end this war
It’s just the funeral
I’ve been waiting for.
