Requiem

lyrics

a customer would like to sing a song. requiem for the sick one. would you like to sing along. i heard him once. a song out of my mind. remembering a time i get my way. and oh my god. how did i get here. where in the world did i used to be. something is scarred. i need defending. what did i do to bring it here. what will bring me round. how does it feel when you're in the dark. it comes as such a shock to find myself down and out. when i tried so hard. a man must feel compassion or compulsion. when he drops down his eyes to read between the lines. hold me now with a postcard to compose. dearest wife i'm never coming home. and oh my god. how did i get here. what in the world will see me through. guilty as charged. help rearrange me. how does it bring it all to you .what am i to do. how does it feel when you're in the dark. it comes as such a shock to find myself down and out. when i tried so hard. well i know. i'm down. and i believe i'll come around
