I've begun my misery
I celebrate my death annually
and with no control I watch my grave grow deeper
(While it swallows me)

I've begun my misery (while it swallows me)
I celebrate my death annually (while it swallows me)
and with no control I watch my grave grow deeper (while it swallows me)
And I slowly begin to walk towards it

and while walking towards it
I trip and fall
I sit awake to prevent from falling
and while lying awake I see a door being shut
I begin to suffocate (as I gasp for breath)

I've begun my misery (while it swallows me)
I celebrate my death annually (while it swallows me)
and with no control I watch my grave grow deeper (while it swallows me)
And I slowly begin to walk towards it

And as I look over my lifeless body
I think to myself
is this how it ends?
A life composed of misery, a life that trapped me
(the life that killed me)

(I've begun my misery)
(I celebrate my death annually)
(And with no control I watch my grave grow deeper)
(And I slowly begin to walk towards it)

I've begun my misery
I celebrate my death annually
and with no control I watch my grave grow deeper
(While it swallows me)

I've begun my misery (while it swallows me)
I celebrate my death annually (while it swallows me)
and with no control I watch my grave grow deeper (while it swallows me)
And I slowly begin to walk towards it (while it swallows me)

    General Commentthis is such a beautiful song... it gives me chills! the dramatic difference between the singing and the screaming is intense and creates a feeling of anger and frustration. it's like the writer is fighting two ideas within him- "and i begun my misery, i celebrate my death annually and with no control i watch my grave grow deeper" (sounds like he just accepts what crap life dealt him and hes just going to let it bring him down and destroy him) "whats wrong with me!?"- the screaming (makes it feel like its another part of him or another voice in his head yelling at himself asking what are you doing?! this is wrong! do something about it! dont just let yourself die) a little crazy... but thats just what it means to me...

    General Commentit gives you the chills cause your a fucking emo fag and this music sucks, the only substance it has is pain and gay faggy angst. get over yourselves and keep hating your life fucking emo queers.

    General Commentits sorta about realizing that when I die, what will i leave behind.
    what have i done for people to remember me for?
    and why havent i tried to enjoy the time i've spent here?
    or at least thats how it hits me.
    because im sorta at that point in my life where ive had friends die around me and im left wondering what about me.
    how am i gonna be remembered?
