If you woke up this morning
And looked outside
Would you look to your street
And know I was lying there last night?

These white chalk lines
Decorate the scene
The silence in the evening
Was broken by the screams

I guess it's too late
'Cause I'm already gone
The sirens blare in the background
Of this fateful song

I was carried away
And buried next day
And I want you to know
What I never had the chance to say

I'm not going to see you tomorrow
(In fact) I'm never going to see you again

You were my best friend
with the worst intentions
To push me overboard
Into a sea that's filling up

With echoes in my head
of every word you said
I wish I would have thought ahead
Instead of painting your sidewalk red

I see the ground getting closer
If only I could take one step backwards
But now gravity takes over
And it's only a matter of time, before you're next in line

Maybe then one day
You'll come to join me in the end
But hopefully not by the same means
I mean I know it was dramatic
Just understand that I've had it up to here
And now I'm next in line
