Eleven five ninety four, six thirty morning
Woke up panicked, sweating, with a mouth full of vomit
No idea what could be wrong
Blew it off as this illness is common
Went back to sleep, then the phone rings
Fell to the ground

As the news was haunting, haunting
Lazarus ended his life, ungodly sacrifice, no reason why

Eleven eight ninety four six thirty evening
The first time we're seeing Lazarus unconscious
Dressed in the clothes he loved
Laid out with all of his favorites
The tears of so many friends

Look around, and this view was haunting, haunting
Lazarus ended his life, ungodly sacrifice, no reason why

Never had an explanation
Never had a chance to thank him
Never had a chance to watch Lazarus rise
Never had a chance to thank him
Never had an explanation
Never had a chance to say goodbye

Lazarus ended his life, ungodly sacrifice, no reason why
Never had a chance to say goodbye

    General CommentBrilliant song and the meaning of it is easy to understand. Just as chakra8 says.
    He wakes up (11/05/94 6:30 am) Feeling sick, fall asleep again, get a phonecall that Lazarus is dead (suicide).
    At the funeral (11/08/94 6:30pm) Lazarus friends is mourning him and he wish that he could say goodbye and thank him for everything.
