I wonder if we'll smile in our coffins while
Loved ones mourn the day, the absence of our face,
Living, laughing, eyes awake
Is this too much for them to take?

Too young for one's conclusion, the lifestyle won
Such values you taught your son

One day we all will die, clichéd fact of life
Force fed to make us heed, inbred to sponge our bleed
Every warning, a leaking rubber, a poison apple for mingled blood

Too young for one's delusion the lifestyle cost
Venereal Mother embrace the loss
