"Why Don't You Kill Yourself?" as written by and Peter Albert Neil Perrett....
Once I had a mission
Turned into affliction
You never listened when I told you it was terminal

Demons sent to tempt ya
Fire wouldn’t melt ya
I would have helped you
but you always did cry wolf

Why don’t you kill yourself?
You ain’t no use to no-one else
Why don’t you kill yourself?
You ain’t no use to no-one else

You called out from the gutter
I couldn’t hear the words you muttered
Then you discovered hell and paid the full price
Angels sent to tempt ya
Desire couldn’t melt ya
This ain’t no missionary’s speech
Just some friendly advice

Why don’t you kill yourself?
You ain’t no use to no-one else
Why don’t you kill yourself?
You ain’t no use to no-one else

I heard you had your stomach pumped four times already this week
You chose to gamble with love
And you just been on a losing streak

    Probably speaking to advertising and marketing
    types. Also pedophiles, I am sure.
    They are, after all, one in the same.
