I woke up in a daze today with confusion on my mind.
But as I rose to my feet, I knew it would be sublime.
The dark figure in the shadows introduced no fear,
And I was not afraid of the dark fate lurking here.
For as I stepped off my bed, just somehow I knew,
By the end of the day, my lips would be blue.
I woke up knowing that day was the day I would die.
But it means nothing to me now; I’ll never ask "why?"
Now as I lie here, collapsed on the floor,
I can see myself knocking on heaven’s door.
My tears are falling for the life I left behind,
A smile plays on my face because now Orion’s aligned.
The only question on my mind is "did I live it right?"
I guess it upset me that I never saw the light.
It was ironic, though, how they all surrounded my
How my dream was real of my defiance of evanescence.
All of my friends were there as I started to fade.
Nothing transgresses how I wish I could’ve stayed.
The parasite in my body that ate me alive,
It took me from them slowly; in pain it does thrive.
I love them all, I can’t express how.
But it’s already over; none of that matters now.
They were with me in the canyons to watch the sunrise.
To Stephanie: my guardian angel, everyone dies.
Hold on, like life, I know you’ll pull through.
Thank you for being you; and you know I love you.
To MG: Holy shit man, this is the day.
When fate steps in and strips me away.
I love you, man, and there’s absolutely shit you can do.
But I want you know I’d never hesitate to die for you.
To J3ST3R: Been awhile, huh, help the rest.
If I were a god, I’d command you to do your best.
Do what you can to help all pull through.
This is the power invested in you.
To Beaner: Don’t worry, man, don’t even sweat it.
Don’t ask me "why" man, even I don’t get it.
You know the reason why I’m stalling.
You also know we all haveta answer god’s calling.
To Twister: Hmm…I always liked your hair. (haha)
But know even if they strapped me into the chair,
This violence, this death, it was my life.
Let me live it and take it, I’ll catcha in the flipside.
To Panther: Always gotta happen when things get better,
So take this literal meaning to the very last letter.
You were there when it counted; through the rough and the good.
So stop losing your temper, and all will be as it should.
As we all stood there and watched the sun set,
I was in bliss; no matter how sour became the bet.
My heart could almost break, as I looked in each of your eyes.
There was no other feeling like that beautiful sunrise.
It doesn’t matter that I faded in pain,
Because I can STILL picture us all dancing in the rain.
And as the smooth rain glides, it streaks our face,
I feel as though I’m receiving small drops of grace.
I felt like I just wanted to stay there forever.
But I felt the shadow coming, so simply enjoyed this endeavor.
I knew by the end of the night, I’d be dead.
So I placed the palm of my hand on MG’s head.
Forehead to forehead, I felt the tears rimming.
And the light of my life slowly began dimming.
I let out an enchanted phrase through a careless whisper,
But it meant everything in the world to me; as though I never parted from Twister.
"We’re eternal warriors man, that means we never goin’ down.
I’ll be in your heart, dawg, I’ll always be around."
I turned and hugged Cody, trying to stay in an eternal embrace,
Placed one final kiss upon her face.
I kissed Cody goodbye ‘cause it was the end of the line.
No matter how I wished I could be together to the end of time.
I couldn’t hold on any longer no matter how hard I tried.
But the happiest day of my life was the day that I died.
