Tears dripping on the ground
I see this barrel staring up at me
Will the trigger set me free
My legs are shaking as I
Decide if I'll consider one more try
Or if I'll end it all tonight

I need to know that someone cares
I need to know that someone's here
Cos that's never been the case with me
So I will bow out gracefully
And save everyone the breath
That they don't need to waste on me

Anywhere is better than here
My body limits me from my dreams
I'm more alive when I'm asleep
Destination unknown right now
I see my soul dancing in the sky
Free from all this pain and strife
I cried up high last night I begged
I begged for you to come down and to
Help me with my life
But I haven't heard back from you
That's ok cos I am through
Its too late now I made up my mind

All I need is someone to take my hand
And tell me that I'll be ok
I'm not as alone as it seems

I want out

Tears falling to the ground
That's the last one I will loose
You cut me up so I'll show you

All I need is someone to take my hand
And tell me that I'll be ok
I'm not as alone as it seems
Say my good-byes to my misery
This is the last of it I will see
Cos I want out I am through
Its hard to live when you know
No one cares for you
