I met the Reaper yesterday

He was just another man

He didn't show me death's true face

Just his icy hands

The intensity of his chilling grip

Much to my surprise

Was somehow only matched

By the fire in his eyes

He said:

Do you want to die today

I can make that happen

Do you want to die today

And then he started laughing

I'd like to say I stared him down

And said go back to hell

But what happened on that day

Is to my knees I fell

Can I be forgiven

Without changing how I'm living

I don't want to become

Anyone

Else

He said:

Do you want to die today

I can make that happen

Do you want to die today

And then he started laughing

I woke up in a cold sweat

but by the way it seemed

I couldn't shake the feeling

It was more than just a dream

Now each night when I fall asleep

I check under my bed

I'm so unsure of myself

Because his voice is in my head

He says:

Do you want to die today

I can make that happen

Do you want to die today

Then he starts in laughing

Do you want to die today

I can make that happen

Do you want to die today

And then he starts in laughing
