Death For My Birthday Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Let me guide you through the story of a boy and his curse
Tiny diamond in a stroller with his first step chasing the hearse
Sipping at a cup that's halfway filled
But looking forward to the day he pays that drinking bill

There's no peace, there's no quiet on this earth
He could find it nestled tightly in that womb beneath the dirt.
Hurt no more when he turned twenty four
He wrote to nail to God's front door that said

I want death, death for my birthday
I want death, death in the worst way
I want death, death for my birthday
Don't get me wrong

'Cause I love life but life has a boyfriend
Bless my soul, I'm out to destroy them
I want death, death for my birthday
For my birthday

He found a high paying job and the love of his life
He rode a roller coaster ride of lust on their wedding night
They made a baby in unmentionable ways
He was ungrateful as a man could be on that blessed day

And underneath he thought this is all a phase
Just a blip in the existence of a structure vast and great
Prayed each night to his cross of charm
For the one thing he couldn't afford, just to buy the farm

I want death, death for my birthday
I want death, death in the worst way
I want death, death for my birthday
Don't get me wrong

'Cause I love life but life has a boyfriend
Bless my soul, I'm out to destroy them
I want death, death for my birthday
For my birthday

I'll never lose another friend again
Or watch them start a war
That's fought for ideals that are dead
I'll never have an argument again

Because my dust will be your salt
My blood will hydrate you all
My heart will be your meal
And I won't ride the cycle of the way
It kills to think and feel, no more, no

I want death, death for my birthday
I want death, death in the worst way
I want death, death for my birthday
Don't get me wrong

'Cause I love life but life has a boyfriend
Bless my soul, I'm out to destroy them
I want death, death for my birthday
For my birthday

One sweet day his heart ceased to beat
He fell so fast beneath all our feet
Through bugs and snakes
Last words he had to say were

Help me claw my way to the surface
Oh, sweet Lord, You know I deserve this
Just one more, just one more birthday
