lyrics

I been banking on an early death
it'd be the perfect way to escape my debts
Im outta whiskey women and cigarettes
my heads been written checks my heart can't cash
lord take me when you need me, I'm ready to go

i been banking on that redirect,
i wanna get these thoughts out of my head
i need a woman that will take my hand
tell me ill be fine as i run through sand

i built a fortress inside my heart
but it peirced my lung and i couldn't thwart
the fluid seeped through my filthy shirt and
it stained my hands and soaked up the dirt

lord take me when you need me, I'm ready to go

i figure time is just a measurement for the inadequate
to shape their ways
and if time is just a gauge of hope
ill use my remaining days to embrace the love
i been trying to put my mind to rest, give my back a break
get shit off my chest
its been harder than i could have guessed,
maybe nows the time that ill divest
lord take me when you need me, I'm ready to go

i been focused on significance
i think ill shift my aim to the indigent
maybe then ill get out of my mind
and reprioritize whats really important

I been banking on an early death
it'd be the perfect way to escape my debts
Im outta whiskey women and cigarettes
my heads been written checks my heart can't cash
lord take me when you need me, I'm ready to go
