Sometimes when I'm feeling lonesome and low
And there's no one to talk to and there's no place to go
When you're too weak to shake it, and you're too strong to cry
Sometimes you just want to lay right down and die
The sun brings no warmth although it's shining bright
You feel drugged down in the daytime and you're so torn up at night
And the worst part about it is you don't even know why
But sometimes you just want to lay down and die
You go to bed wondering why God created man
You decide for yourself that creation was the original sin
You get up in the morning and you break up all over again
The trees are no longer tombstones and smiles aren't knives
You don't hate your fellow man for their pathetic little lives
You've resigned yourself to just getting by
But sometimes you just want to lay down and die
The most terrible sound you've ever heard is the ringing of the phone
And a smile from a stranger cuts you right to the bone
You get to feeling so violent that you hope everyone just leaves you alone
