Why won’t you let me survive
Why won’t you let me breathe,
I try to inhale, exhale,
But you just won’t let me leave
Why won’t you give me some calm,
Just a little silence, peace?
Have I done you any harm?
Why won’t you give me reprieve?
Let me lay down, quiet, deep,
Let me wither, let me fade,
Bury me, please forget me,
Plant a tombstone in the shade
My head doesn’t work anymore,
Every limb shudders, I ache
My chest hurts and I don’t know
Just how much more I can take
Will you ever stop this torture?
When will you have some pity?
Why won’t you see that I’m human?
Why won’t you please let me be?
