Back To The Grave

Back To The Grave



It should have never ended like this

The casket should still be empty

Tears roll down your mothers cheek

The rain wets the head stone

It's new, engraved "Here lies our son."

Seventeen years,

gone to nothing, almost wasted.



How could you do that

Be so selfish?

You left everything behind

Soon memories of you will fade in mind



Is it painless?

A bottle of pills

A slash at the wrist

the blood drains on to the floor

your eyes roll back into your head

It's all over now.

Can't take it back.

How scared were you?

Did you feel the numbness?

You knew it was painless.



You thought no one loved you,

or no one cared.

But who is no one?

You always seemed to need someone



The first time that no one was there

you just went an had to end it all

Don't you realize...

all you really need is yourself?



Even so,

people did care.

Someone will always.



Did you know it was Sunday night?

Now Monday mourn...

You had taken your life

only hours before.

Your mother had walked in,

not paying attention to her baby.

"It's time for school!"

She said it only once.

And then she notice your body

laying cold white,

on the floor.



Now it's all back to her memories

of pre-school and nursery rhymes.

She screamed.



I always had wished I had you're courage...tears come to mind,

I can only picture it

to just go and take my life.

Then again, I'm glad I don't.

I never want to be that selfish.

That isin't courage you know.

Only a coward could give up like that

It's all just to make you think

Don't let only pictures and

mourners be left.

It's all back to the

casket and the grave.

"They turn the lights down low,

In shadows hiding from the world,

Only coming out when it gets cold.

The seas part when they hit the floor,

The voices carry on and out the door

And everything you touch turns into gold

Like the angel you are you laugh creating a lightness in my chest,

Your eyes they penetrate me,

(Never cease to amaze me)

That's when I got up and left" Like The Angel - Rise Against
