Now that I'm dead and gone
Look at me I'm floatin' like the breeze
With my roots strong like trees
Unfiltered in your memories
Holdin' a candle light vigil
Sayin' a prayer my name is Grace
Buried with the paint on my face
I put the chase up long enough
I live the lifestyle wrong and tough
And now my life span's up
I give a fuck I'm bout to run it in the after life
And hopefully they put my soul in the butcher knife

If I was to die
It'd make a lot of people happy
No funeral, possesions
No plot at the cemetery
Finally, I can be alone in my own world
The wagons come take me away from the Killing Fields
If I was to die
Would you finally shut your mouth?
Understand what I am
Understand what I'm about
Like curse
Sets me up high on your pedestal
I'm about to find out
(Shaggy it's time to go)

I wanna die so I can see the other side
I wanna die so I can fly
I wanna die take me to the other side
I wanna die so I can fly

I wanna die so I can see the other side
I wanna die so I can fly
I wanna die take me to the other side
I wanna die so I can fly

I wanna die, maybe I'll get angel wings
So I can cut 'em off, cook 'em up
I have some hella wing dings
I'd take my hallo off, get myself a ladder
Hang it on the wall
Maybe you'll think it's a gold record
Death, everybody follow my hearse
Why does everybody always gotta go and die first?
Before their homies are missin' 'em
And family members kissin' 'em
Everybody even enemies stop dissin' 'em
I wanna die, so I can haunt my buddies
Stand behind them in the mirror
With my eyes all bloody
Stick my long, black
Cold tongue all in they ear
And be like, I'm only playin'
And disappear
I wanna die, and have everything answered
What happened to my father?
Why was I a bastard?
What is thunder?
Is it really God bowlin'?
And nightime's a blanket
And the stars are the holes in it

I wanna die so I can see the other side
I wanna die so I can fly
I wanna die take me to the other side
I wanna die so I can fly

I wanna die so I can see the other side
I wanna die so I can fly
I wanna die take me to the other side
I wanna die so I can fly

Your answers are unneccesary you understand
And never question the emotions of an unstable man
I got the petals of a Lotus
And the pedal to the floor
Followin' a black hearse
In the rain through a thunder storm
Never once did I envision me
Bein' stuck in such a situation
He made decisions, now his spirit levitatin'
I can see him wavin' at me
Through the window of the hearse
He's cryin' blood, it all stops
And it gets worst

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
At least that's what I was told
When I was on the come up
Been to the grave, and it ain't no joke
Resurfaced to the earth with the spirits I invoke
Cut down in my prime, when my clock got hit
Now I'm ridin' in the back of a hearse and shit
Darkness, pitch black, never seein' no one
And the Devil got his darkest demons ridin' shotgun

I wanna die so I can see the otherside
I wanna die so I can fly
I wanna die take me to the otherside
I wanna die so I can fly

I wanna die so I can see the otherside
I wanna die so I can fly
I wanna die take me to the otherside
I wanna die so I can fly

Take me away
Take me with you
Take me away
Take me with you
Take me away...

    Holy Shit.... My Life In A Song? Or My Death In A Song Mayhaps... Ponder That :-D

    To me, my friend Mike could be singing Shaggy's part and the rest of us (his homies) could be singing Jay's part. Mike would be the type of spirit to come up behind us in the mirror and stick his tongue in our ears...and the rest of us don't necessarily want to be "not alive" but we have always been told that death answers all of those questions you ponder during life. Also, death is the only way we will ever be with Mike again...so some of us want to go to the other side.

    Love this song, I've always thought what life was like after death, and sometimes wanted to die just to know, never actaully tried to kill myself lol but yea, soon as I heard this I fucking fell in love with it.

    and I'm not even into the whole "juggalo" and "juggalettes" thing

    Love this song. One of my favorite songs from Dark Lotus! I could definitely see myself as Violent J messing with all my homies.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

No Surprises
Radiohead
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.
