Two Bullet Suicide

Two bullet suicide
The first time didn't do it right
So you set it up again

You'll get off the train
While piercing your brain
And comin' off your track

A crowd stands around
A pool of you on the ground
Drying in the ochre sun

As if eyes of a dove
You see from above
A scene forms down below

You strain from crying out
There's no sound in your shout
What fills your ears is hollow to the world

Four men kneeling down
Lift you from the ground
And spirit you away

Three bells, you hear them toll
The church is getting full
Now it's spilling out the sides

You hear 'em sing, you see 'em pray
Then they're taking you away
To a void among the green

They put you down into the pit
Where the earth removed will never fit
It always leaves a sullen mound

And forever from this day
You'll start to fade away
From those you left behind

Further from their minds...

Slipping more in time...

Until you've blown away.
