  • Now I know it ain't right, but I decided I hadta'
    Us poets paint life, but don't get recognized till afta'
    So I faked my own death just to see what would happen
    As I taje shallow breaths and wait for people's reaction
    It was funny at first, but I had to hold my laughter...wait
    Before long I was on display at an open casket wake
    And I'm the main attraction who draws a crowd. A freak show of sorts
    Good thing my skin is pale enough to pass as a decomposing corpse
    Frozen in my thoughts, laying stiff...playing with
    People's emotions and awaiting a kiss from praying
    lips that I hate but miss.
    She didn't show...although she sent a card with flowers
    How considerate. That little bitch would make me sit in my car for hours
    Heartless powers start to devour my patience...it gets me violent
    I'm ready to fly shit and end everything like "I QUIT!"
    Then again I sit deathly quiet...biting my tongue
    Just excited that some kids...who were invited to come did
    I'm the center of attention...the talk of the town
    It ain't all that profound,
    but on this special day of mine I'm the one the universe revolves around
    It's like a birthday...kind of.
    I also found that it's the worst way to find love.
    White doves battle black crows in one of the back rows
    And everybody my ass knows back home is sporting black clothes
    Looking glum as usual...it's all too familiar
    I put the fun back into funeral. My morbid humor'll kill ya'
    For all that it's worth...the people who I thought were jerks
    Were putting on the water works and it sorta hurts
    My momma stroked my hair with so much care but hardly spoke
    Now my heart is broke, and yeah...I should've let her in on the joke
    But I'm honestly choked up, and I'm stuck holding back my tears
    As I absorb the atmosphere, "I wanna turn back I'm scared!"
    Then a hand touches my shoulder to calm my nerves
    And something odd occurs because I heard my father's words
    So I got disturbed...as he expressed what he's never said
    What bothered me the most is that I remembered...he's dead
    I manifested destiny. The best and worst of worlds has come true
    As I'm buried alive, in the back of my mind echoes his words:
    "I love you."
