She's got a tale to tell / Well, the detonation put a shotgun there in her lap / Was her patience gone? Yeah, you'd better believe it / She'd been holed up here for a decade or two, but made a goddamn choice – End it all, end it now so you'd better quit your complaining / Through the front door in the kitchen, heard the door slam, wondered what she’s missing / Takes a breath, welcomes death, holds back a cough

Well she'd been dealing with this motherfucking man in her home who shouldn't live to see what the ending is like / Oh no, she's not letting him get there / If he was man enough for a minute or two, he might've seen this coming from a mile away / Don't you think she's got a good reason?

Through the front door in the kitchen, heard the door slam, wondered what he's missing / Then she turned tail, and took the first door / She made a statement: "You're getting what you asked for"

Cut him up, cut him up with a hacksaw, in his blood, in his blood’s where she'll end up / Ashes and dust - like the whole population of planet earth, yeah you bet – that’s where they'll join up / "But for the first time in 20 years I'm happy to be in my house, so I might light a cigarette," tells herself, holds back a cough as the bomb tears her ass off

First thing he saw was the glitter of the saw in her hand - He didn't get it at first cause he didn't quite understand why she even would bother / Tries to lock up the door, but he can't - she kicked it in didn’t matter if he latched it / Didn't speak up / Didn't get to, because his head blew apart

She cut him up, cut him up with a hacksaw, and in his blood, in his blood's where she ends up / Ashes and dust like the whole population of planet earth - yeah you bet that's where they'll join up / But as the world ends, it’s hard to pretend she got her way, and it's a satisfying end / Closes her eyes, takes a drag, has a last thought / as she climbs off the carpet

Ears still ringing from the detonation and a shotgun sitting to the side of a cut up dude / It's not so fucking depressing
