Leave Me to Dry

I'm saturated with the thoughts
I'm soaked to the core
My brain the pain clots
Just treat me like a chore
Leave me in the sun
I'll dry out this disease
Don't let me have any fun
I've been living on my knees
Don't lend me any help
Let me fend for myself
If you hear me yelp
Get the gun off the shelf
Find a spot in the front
For all the world to see
I won't pull a stunt
I won't try to flee
I have not learned my mistake
I still try to die
Push me till I break
Just leave me to dry
