Support Mental Illness

We have known each other for 32 years A marriage, a son, a divorce A love-hate relationship That took its course Corona kicked in You took the scientific approach You preached your thoughts Until you had a sore throat Aliens, paedophiles, government Is your belief to rid the human race Injecting us with chips So, we can be traced You believe you are a target So strongly in your mind That you would rather leave this life To search for peace You think you will find You ring to me your planning your suicide Look after our boy My brain is fried Murdock the devil and government Have got me in their sights My premonitions are so real I’m too scared to close my eyes Everything nearly in order I have accepted my fate I will go out my way I will not be anybody’s bait Is this a cry for help Ring lifeline If you’re in doubt How can you put me through this How do I tell your son Your daddy is gone But his proud of The boy you become The emotion repercussions of your decision Will affect your boys With sadness they will be ridden Now I’m left to sit here and ponder And cry for my son Wondering how to tell him your life with your daddy Is done Not knowing when you will do it And dreading the phone to ring How can you put me in this situation I feel like I am waiting for the end Of the string I hope you rethink and change your mind Get the help you need And to yourself be kind Receiving your call, admitting your sick I know was hard For you to admit I beg you, get help to find your way To wake up and live to see another day.
