Flashbacks

It takes me away
felling sick of my own life, wondering if I should live or die
Swallowing pills down untill I'm done
Stand on this roof till the morning comes
I stand and simplify my hate, Suicide is my only fate
As I jump it takes me away, Flashbacks to the miserable days
then Darkness surrounds me like a lake, It was a dream now I awake
I scrounge for a new scenario to die, searching through my contagious mind
In my mind I must be dead, I cock the gun to my head
As I hesitate it takes me away, Flashbacks to the miserable days
then Darkness surrounds me like a lake, It was a dream now I awake
I pull the trigger on the gun, Blood bursts like a hot crimson sun
Now I can always say never, no more hurt or pain forever
As I lie here it takes me away, Flashbacks to the miserable days
then Darkness surrounds me like a lake, But this time I won't awake
As I drift it takes me away, Flashbacks to when I was awake
then Darkness surrounds me like a lake, It takes me away
It takes me away...
