WOODS OF YPRES lyrics : "By The Time You Read This (I Will Already Be Dead)"

By the time you read this, I will already be dead
Do not reply to this, it is only to be read
By the time you read this, I will already have been killed

Do not reply to this, but notify my next of kin

Self administrate your estate,

Pick up the pieces and give them away
Let them take all the things they want and dispose of yourself


Photos and notes go into the sink
Under all the hot water the faucet could give
Now my dreams are just running ink

Going down the dream

By the time you read this, I will already be gone

Do not reply to this, but realize what you have done
By the time you read this, it will already be true
Do not reply to this, but realize what you made me do


Oh, oh


By the time you read this, I will have gone the way good men go
When they go bad, where they go bad
By the time you read this, I will have gone to the place where good men go

Where they go wrong, when they go wrong

By the time you read this, I will already have been changed

Do not reply to this, after I've experienced maximum pain
No longer good to anyone, and never would be again
Know that I spent my final days, endlessly tying the endless loose ends


One last look around the place, with sun shining into empty room
For the final time I close the door that will open for someone new


The only change I make before I leave, is in the bedroom of my dreams
Where I covered the walls in deep blue paint, rather than my blood and my brains


By the time you read this, I will already be dead
Do not reply to this, it is only to be read

By the time you read this, I will already be dead
