I'm gonna clean the house
I'm gonna fix the fence
With my final hours
I'm gonna tie up these loose ends
I won't leave a note for anyone to find
Tomorrow they'll know what I've done here tonight

The drastic steps I've taken
Are just an act of desperation
I knew no one would miss me, so what the hell?
I fought, and lied, I drank too much
Hurt everyone I've ever touched
And just how much I've hurt you, it's hard to tell
This is not some cry for help
It's goodbye, I wish you well
Because I love you I'm gonna kill myself

Now who is that in my easy chair?
Now wait a minute, that's the old me sitting there
And I thank God, the devil in me died
'Cause I stand before you now a man changed and alive

The drastic steps I've taken
Are just an act of desperation
I knew no one would miss me, so what the hell?
I fought, and lied, I drank too much
Hurt everyone I've ever touched
And just how much I've hurt you, it's hard to tell
This is not some cry for help
It's goodbye, I wish you well
Because I love you I had to kill myself.

I'm gonna clean the house
I'm gonna fix that fence
In my final hours, I'm gonna tie up these loose ends

    General Comment:Took me the second listen to realize he's talking about changing who he used to be, and "killing himself" to become a new, better person.

    General Comment:Loveee this song! Can't stop listening to it..
    i had to listen to it a couple times at first to understand the meaning..
    he's not actually killing himself, he's killing the old person who he didn't like.

    Now who's that
    In my easy chair?
    Now, wait a minute
    That's the old me sittin there
    And I thank God
    The devil in me died
    Cause I stand before you now
    A man changed and alive

    he was remembering the old him in his "easy chair"
    and he thanks the lord that he's changed..

    he's killing himself for someone he loves because he drank too much, and hurt others (especially this person that he loves) he's not doing it for attention, he's doing it because he knows he needs to.

    this is an amazing amazing song. i'm so surprised theres not more lyrics to it.
