when is our time to go , do we know our time comes near
when do we leave our relatives and friends behind
bleeding from grief
if the time is there
what do we say , what do we see before we close our eyes
do we leave a tear ... do we go with fear
is it heaven we will rise to or will we end up in hell
breathing sulfur gasses and the sound of screaming souls we hear
do we have a date written on our back ?
and can we see it coming when our time comes near
i don't know .. it won't keep me awake ... but this is the one thing i fear
to die young , and leaving your family right here
