Long Road Ahead
I killed a girl to put her out of her misery,
and I killed a man to put myself out of mine.
Broken flashlight, dwindling supplies—
the truth is hidden in chalk lines.
It's a long road ahead in a world full of dead.
But all we need fear is the living.
Cut your hair short so reaching hands
slip off of you like water off a duck's back.
Take my gun, hold your breath, and aim.
When it's time to pull the trigger, don't be afraid.
Everyone's road ends in the same valley,
but some choose to get there in a hurry.
Take a nip to forget what she's done;
it ain't known for its finish—unlike us.
