Release Lyrics

5. Release
Wasting away, another day, closer to Death
Bursting with rage, longing to take my final breath
The living dead, bound to a bed, gaunt and grey
Seeking reprieve, in the comfort of the grave
Release me
Set me free
Life has no point, every breath a burden
I am but a shadow, imprisoned by my wretched flesh
A ghost haunting this pathetic ruined body
I do not wish to see life out to the bitter end
Release me
Set me free
Body corrodes, ravished by disease, wreckage of flesh
I cannot move, drained of strength. Paralysed
Fully aware of my surroundings, mentally sound
But unable to communicate my wish to die
The end cannot come soon enough
Please let me die with dignity
Now dry your eyes my dear
Do not weep
Do not shed a tear
Let me bid you a last farewell
The time has come to take my leave
The drugs they only dull my mind
My body tortured by disease
The end cannot come soon enough
Now let me die with dignity
Please let me swallow the poison that brings the cure
So that the agony drains from my tortured shell
I welcome the reaper
Death is my destiny
Break these chains, set me free
Let me soar infinitely
Let Death take my hand and lead me away
Release me, let me drift into eternal sleep
