Now that I'm dead and gone
Look at me I'm floatin' like the breeze
With my roots strong like trees
Unfiltered in your memories
Holdin' a candle light vigil
Sayin' a prayer my name is Grace
Buried with the paint on my face
I put the chase up long enough
I live the lifestyle wrong and tough
And now my life span's up
I give a fuck I'm bout to run it in the after life
And hopefully they put my soul in the butcher knife

If I was to die
It'd make a lot of people happy
No funeral, possesions
No plot at the cemetery
Finally, I can be alone in my own world
The wagons come take me away from the Killing Fields
If I was to die
Would you finally shut your mouth?
Understand what I am
Understand what I'm about
Like curse
Sets me up high on your pedestal
I'm about to find out
(Shaggy it's time to go)

I wanna die so I can see the other side
I wanna die so I can fly
I wanna die take me to the other side
I wanna die so I can fly

I wanna die so I can see the other side
I wanna die so I can fly
I wanna die take me to the other side
I wanna die so I can fly

I wanna die, maybe I'll get angel wings
So I can cut 'em off, cook 'em up
I have some hella wing dings
I'd take my hallo off, get myself a ladder
Hang it on the wall
Maybe you'll think it's a gold record
Death, everybody follow my hearse
Why does everybody always gotta go and die first?
Before their homies are missin' 'em
And family members kissin' 'em
Everybody even enemies stop dissin' 'em
I wanna die, so I can haunt my buddies
Stand behind them in the mirror
With my eyes all bloody
Stick my long, black
Cold tongue all in they ear
And be like, I'm only playin'
And disappear
I wanna die, and have everything answered
What happened to my father?
Why was I a bastard?
What is thunder?
Is it really God bowlin'?
And nightime's a blanket
And the stars are the holes in it

I wanna die so I can see the other side
I wanna die so I can fly
I wanna die take me to the other side
I wanna die so I can fly

I wanna die so I can see the other side
I wanna die so I can fly
I wanna die take me to the other side
I wanna die so I can fly

Your answers are unneccesary you understand
And never question the emotions of an unstable man
I got the petals of a Lotus
And the pedal to the floor
Followin' a black hearse
In the rain through a thunder storm
Never once did I envision me
Bein' stuck in such a situation
He made decisions, now his spirit levitatin'
I can see him wavin' at me
Through the window of the hearse
He's cryin' blood, it all stops
And it gets worst

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
At least that's what I was told
When I was on the come up
Been to the grave, and it ain't no joke
Resurfaced to the earth with the spirits I invoke
Cut down in my prime, when my clock got hit
Now I'm ridin' in the back of a hearse and shit
Darkness, pitch black, never seein' no one
And the Devil got his darkest demons ridin' shotgun

I wanna die so I can see the otherside
I wanna die so I can fly
I wanna die take me to the otherside
I wanna die so I can fly

I wanna die so I can see the otherside
I wanna die so I can fly
I wanna die take me to the otherside
I wanna die so I can fly

Take me away
Take me with you
Take me away
Take me with you
Take me away...

    General CommentTo me, my friend Mike could be singing Shaggy's part and the rest of us (his homies) could be singing Jay's part. Mike would be the type of spirit to come up behind us in the mirror and stick his tongue in our ears...and the rest of us don't necessarily want to be "not alive" but we have always been told that death answers all of those questions you ponder during life. Also, death is the only way we will ever be with Mike again...so some of us want to go to the other side.

    General Commentits this

    (Monoxide Child)
    Now that I'm dead and gone
    Look at me
    I'm floating like the breeze
    With my roots strong like trees
    I'm filtered in your memories
    Holding a candle light vigil
    Saying a prayer
    My name is graced
    Buried with the paint on my face
    I put the chase up long enough
    I live the lifestyle wrong and tough
    And now my life span's up
    I give a fuck
    I'm about to run it in the after life
    And hopefully they put my soul in a butcher knife

    (Shaggy 2 Dope)
    If I was to die
    It'd make a lot of people happy
    No funeral processions
    No plot at the cemetery
    Finally
    I can be alone in my own world
    The wagons come take me away from the killing fields
    If I was to die
    Would you finally shut your mouth?
    Understand what I am
    Understand what I'm about
    Like curse
    Place me up high on your pedastil
    I'm about to find out
    (SHAGGY IT'S TIME TO GO)

    (Chorus x2)
    I wanna die
    So I can see the otherside
    I wanna die
    So I can fly (Take Me With You)
    I wanna die
    Take me to the otherside
    I wanna die
    So I can fly (Take Me Away)

    (Violent J)
    I wanna die
    Maybe I'll get angel wings
    So I can cut them off
    Cook them up
    and have some helly wing dings
    I'd take my hallo off
    Get myself a ladder
    Hang it on the wall
    Maybe you'll think it's a gold record
    Death
    Everybody follow my hearse
    Why does everybody always gotta go and die first?
    Before their homies are missing them
    Family members kissing them
    Everybody even enemies stop dissing them
    I want to die
    So I can haunt my buddies
    Stand behind them in the mirror with my eyes all bloody
    Stick my long, black, cold tongue all in they ear
    And be like, "I'm only playing"
    And disappear
    I wanna die
    And have everything answered
    What happened to my father?
    Why was I a bastard?
    What is thunder?
    Is it really God bowling?
    And nightime's a blanket
    And all the stars are the holes in it

    (Chorus x2)
    I wanna die
    So I can see the otherside
    I wanna die
    So I can fly (Take Me With You)
    I wanna die
    Take me to the otherside
    I wanna die
    So I can fly (Take Me Away)

    (Jamie Madrox)
    Donations are unneccesary
    You understand
    You never question the emotions
    Of an unstable man
    I got the petals of the Lotus
    And the pedal to the floor
    Following a black hearse
    In the rain through a thunder storm
    Never once did I envision
    Me being stuck in such a situation
    He made decisions
    And now his spirit levitating
    I can see him waving at me
    Through the window of the hearse
    He's crying blood
    It all stops and it gets worse

    (Blaze)
    Ashes to ashes
    Dust to dust
    At least that's what I was told
    When I was on the come up
    Been to the grave and it ain't no joke
    Resurfaced to the earth with the spirits I envoke
    Cut down in my prime
    When my block got hit
    Now I'm riding in the back of a hearse and shit
    Darkness, pitch black
    Never seeing no one
    And the devil got his darkest demons
    Riding shotgun

    (Chorus x2)
    I wanna die
    So I can see the otherside
    I wanna die
    So I can fly (Take Me With You)
    I wanna die
    Take me to the otherside
    I wanna die
    So I can fly (Take Me Away)

    Take me away
    Take me with you
    Take me away
    Take me with you
    Take me away (echo)

    General CommentLove this song, I've always thought what life was like after death, and sometimes wanted to die just to know, never actaully tried to kill myself lol but yea, soon as I heard this I fucking fell in love with it.


    and I'm not even into the whole "juggalo" and "juggalettes" thing
