about

A distant influential friend died not too long ago and upon receiving the news, I got to thinking about the topic of death. It hit me hard one night and I decided I needed to stay up through the night and see this through. So here's a song with a vomit of lyrics that have been circling around my head.

lyrics

Hey, you died today
And I didn’t get to say goodbye
My sister called me crying
And I couldn’t bare to listen
But I did anyway

The words comin outta of her mouth
Felt like shrapnel, sending me to the ground
Tearing my flesh apart
As If I were human
Or like I had feelings

And that’s the thing
I wonder what you were thinking
When it all came down
And you had your last seconds in that basement

Did you think of me at all
Or were you too consumed in pain
Or was it like the light had faded over everything

Well two days have passed
And I feel just the same
It’s that thought you’ll never be there
To comfort me when I’m in pain

That’s so damn selfish
And who am I to blame
But myself that I never kept up with you
Even through all your shame

And that’s the thing
I wonder what you were thinking
When it all came down
And you had your last seconds in that basement

Did you think of me at all
Or were you too consumed in pain
Or was it like the light had faded over everything



And I’ve been thinkin
What would I do then
Would I call for help
Or just extinguish my guilt

And die in peace
With a grin on my face
Thinking it was all worth it
And I had a good time in this place
