I need all
This damp and rusty soil
I’ve been put down
Now up is my only way
In my troubled life
It seemed the easiest escape
Just lie in this box
Wait for the angels to take me

I’m only three feet in the ground
The lazy bastards stopped digging
Half way down
I’ll wait and all will be clear
The angels take me oh lord
subdue my fear
I hope these angels come
Please Lord don’t leave me
Waiting, wishing I had been burned
