lyrics

Are you asleep my little baby?
I am miserable like all the many.
I have tried their humble comforts
they leave me so blind and empty.
And in the middle of the night
the questions rise aplenty.

This is how I’m going to die
in a field of daisies.
This is how I’m going to die
in a bedroom all alone.
This is how I’m going to die
amongst my friends and family.
This is how I’m going to die
on my own.

I once slept like all the many
with my pillow tightly sown.
And my supernatural family
they would tell me I was wrong.
And in the middle of the night
I would not feel so alone.
This is how I’m going to die
in a field of daisies.
This is how I’m going to die
in a bedroom on my own.
This is how I’m going to die
amongst my friends and family.
This is how I’m going to die
on my own.
When I left that crooked family
I was left in outer space.
Staring at my hometown planet
without me without a trace.
And in that middle of the night
I felt a horrible place.

This is how I’m going to die
in a field of daisies.
This is how I’m going to die
in a bedroom without God.
This is how I’m going to die
amongst my friends and family.
This is how I’m going to die
on my own.
