  • If I could speak I'd tell you all my fears and deprivations
    If I could feel I'd take away your pain
    If I could bleed I'd show you all my scars and imperfections
    If I could breed I'd hold you in my veins

    You've got me feeling like an animal
    Beat down and feeling paralyzed
    You've got me feeling like I have no other hand to hold
    In this assisted suicide

    So say something beautiful
    Say what you're keeping inside
    This anticipation
    I will only let you down
    Say something meaningful
    Say what you're trying to hide
    This anticipation
    I will only let you down

    If I could breathe I'd show you all my infantile obsessions
    If I could sleep I'd hold you in my head
    If I was strong I'd keep you close and render you defenseless
    If I was gone I'd hope you take my place

    You've got me feeling like an animal
    Beat down and feeling paralyzed
    You've got me feeling like I have no other hand to hold
    In this assisted suicide

    So say something beautiful
    Say what you're keeping inside
    This anticipation
    I will only let you down
    Say something meaningful
    Say what you're trying to hide
    This anticipation
    I will only let you down

    So say something beautiful
    Say what you're keeping inside
    This anticipation
    I will only let you down
    Say something meaningful
    Say what you're trying to hide
    This anticipation
    I will only let you down Writer/s: Shaun Morgan Welgemoed
