Janet said she wants to stay at home/
“I don’t want to die in a hospital alone, leave me with my cats, the roaches and the rats, I’d rather be here than treated like that”/
and the state can’t say death or don’t the best way to die is when you want/
hope sets in for a form of relief/
pain outweighs your religious beliefs and you know, this is not a sin/
I just want this hurt to end/
please, let my exit begin/
only money’s going to find you dignity/
when you’ve reached that point of declivity/
this may sound cowardly and vain but I wanna go before the pain/
I’m not sure how this boy will end but I’m hoping it’s in the arms of a friend and if luck is on my side/
I’ll roll over with my eyes/
I’ll be in you when I say goodbye/
so put the needle in my veins/
when you see me smile and strain/
if I can get it raised in my final days/
then I’ll proclaim, “I’m going this way, covered in sweat (lay me to rest) a kiss before death, I exit this mess”
