I have every intention of dying today
I will burn out like a matchstick flame
my body will break before these sheets
and I’ll fight in vain, if I know me

Drag my nails down the wall
picture frames, they fall
try to find my feet as I’m kicked through the yard
and there are two men, tea, prayer, and cakes
my lights go out, coin weight on my face

A stretcher of hay will lead me away
I will lay my sweet body down
broken bones laid in broken ground
and you did what I told you to do,
just like I told you

I have every intention of living today
but not for myself as most lay claim
I’ve given in to the depths of my grave
I have been slain so that I’ll be raised
