Thunderstorms and Tornadoes

My mind tells me things won't be okay
For me until it's gone.
My mind tells my body it's okay
To sleep and hold no Earthly shape.
My mind tells my soul that it's okay
Things will be better off this way.

No more pain,
I wonder if I'll feel myself decay.
No more suffering,
This is the only way.
I'm prepared to do whatever it takes
Even though it will take my life.
It won't be long now.
I begged for you but for this I pray.

The fear sets in; the doubt.
What will my family do?
What will they think?
I can't leave them a note it's too cliche
Thought it's a better scene
Than blood shot eyes and bruise neck ring.

My mind tells me things,
It's ready to let go.
My mind tells my body not to struggle
It's okay to walk into the dark.
My mind tells my soul that it's okay
Things will be better off this way.

No more pain,
I wonder if I'll feel myself decay.
No more suffering,
This is the only way.
I'm prepared to do whatever it takes
Even though it will take my life.
It won't be long now.
I begged for you but for this I pray.
