Cyanide Lyrics

Sleep and dream of this
Death angel’s kiss
Brings final bliss
Don’t believe it!
Empty are they
Death, won’t you let me stay?
Empty they say
Death, won’t you call your name?
Oh, call your name!
Suicide, I’ve already died
It’s just the funeral I’ve been waiting for
Cyanide, living dead inside
Break this empty shell forevermore
Wait, wait patiently
Your death-black wings
Unfolding sleep
Treading on me
Empty they say
Death, won’t you let me stay?
Empty they say
Death, hear me call your name
Oh, call your name!
Suicide, I’ve already died
It’s just the funeral I’ve been waiting for
Cyanide, living dead inside
Break this empty shell forevermore
Say, is that rain or are they tears?
That stained your concrete face for years
Crying, weeping, shedding strife
Year after year, life after life
A narrow freshly broken ground
A concrete angel laid right down
Upon the moon that swallows fast
It’s peace at last
Oh, peace at last
Empty they say
Death, won’t you let me stay?
Empty they say
Death, hear me call your name
Oh, call your name
Suicide, I’ve already died
It’s just the funeral I’ve been waiting for
Cyanide, living dead inside
Break this empty shell forevermore
Forevermore!
Forevermore!
It’s the funeral I’ve been waiting for!
