as he sits on the moor
with his new found friend
who had shown him the way
to bow out at the end
with a dignity only
a murder can bring
with sweet violation
that versatile thing

please believe me when i say
this is how it has to end
this is easy on us all
well easier than other ways
sleep is all i ask of you
sleep and not to wake again
see this through and leave my friend
tears will come and i will end

while i hope you all miss me
and weep at my grave
i imagine you'll pray some
and give hope to the brave
to the ones who have loved me
and cared for me
and who die when i tell them
i just had to go

please believe me when i say
this is how it has to end
this is easy on us all
well easier than other ways
sleep is all i ask of you
sleep and not to wake again
see this through and leave my friend
sears will come and i will end

    General CommentWhen i first heard the lyrics i thought that it was about suicide. At the start it goes "as he sits on the moor
    with his new found friend
    who had shown him the way
    to bow out at the end"
    I think that this means his "new found friend" is a weapon of some description that he will use to end his life. He then goes on to say: "please believe me when i say
    this is how it has to end
    this is easy on us all
    well easier than other ways " i feel that this means that he thinks it's easier if he goes this way, because if he stays around he feels that it will cause even more misery. We are also shown that he wants to commit suicide by when he says "sleep is all i ask of you
    sleep and not to wake again ". We are then shown how that he thinks about his family by when he says "to the ones who have loved me
    and cared for me
    and who die when i tell them
    i just had to go " because he knows that they'll be gutted.
    "see this through and leave my friend
    tears will come and i will end " this is my favourite part of the whole song, because it brings all the song together and makes it clearer of what the whole song is about. I absolutely love the cooper temple clause and i would recommend buying any of their records to anyone, especially "See this through and leave" it has to be one of my favourite albums at the minute. It's well worth buying :) xXxXxXxXx
