Sippin on the dragon the other day,
Tompkins Square Park up by Avenue A.
Halfway down the forty and a pig come up to me,
said "listen here boy, gotta show me yer ID."
Well living in a police state,
I tell you man, it ain't that great,
I know it doesn't even matter what I say,
but don't ya know there's gotta be a better way?
I'm all alone, I'm feeling bad,
I'm by my self, all I ever had.
I hate my life, I'm such a mess,
I wanna die, I'm so depressed.
And every time I look at you,
I know exactly what to do.
I didn't want to be born, the pleasure all has died,
so now I'm gonna snuff it with a suicide.

**
Suicide (anok?), it's a better way.
Sit in a hot bathtub, raise a blade
and slit your wrists, watch your life fade to black.
You have this power to kill yourself, it's suicide,
and no one can take that back.
There is no better death than suicide, suicide...
There is no better way...*

    General Commentactually its not its saying that suicide and death is better then living in the police state of our our society and that the only real power you have in life is your own death

    General Commentunluckyemokid, hahahah, unlucky emo kid. man emo kids are just losers how can u be so based on ur heart and love when ur only 15, theres no way u could have fallen in love, had a very meaningful relationship then have ur heart brokeen long enough to base ur entire life on it. thats what emo is and its annoying as fuck, i see kids waste their entire youths liek that. the song is about the only power people have is to kill themselves, its all they have, the only power u truly have is over urself, i think choking victim was better than leftover crack myself as well. late, josie joe

    General Commentthis song is disturbing. I don't think they intended it to be a pro-suicide song (but hell if know what goes on in stza's head), it's just an expression on the helplessness of a situation and how you want it all to end. i guess enduring when the situation has just got so f*cked up you feel like you can't go on isn't as attractive as ending it right here right now. I'm sure a lot of people have felt a point in time where you just wanted it all to stop. well, CV hasn't killed themselves yet, otherwise there wouldn't be any LOC :)
