Perfect Way To Die
Verse
Simple walk to the corner store
Mama never thought she would be
Getting a call from the coroner
Said her sons been gunned down
Been gunned down
Can you come now
Tears in her eyes
Can you calm down
Please ma’am can you calm down
B Section
It rained fire in the city
That day
They say
A river of blood in the streets
No love in the streets
Then came silence in the city
That day
They say
Just another one gone
And they tell her move on
Chorus
She stuck there singing
Baby don’t you close your eyes
Because this could be our final time
And you know I’m horrible at saying goodbye
And I think of all you could have done
At least you’ll stay forever young
I guess you picked the perfect way to die
Ohh
I guess you picked the perfect way to die

Verse #2
New job
New city
New her
Bright eyed
As you would have been proud
If you knew her
Flashing lights in the mirror
Pull over
Pull over
A couple nights in detention
And it’s over
A whole life’s over
B Section
They came marching in the city
That day
They say
Carrying signs in the street
Crying eyes in the streets
But they heard nothing from the city
That day
They say
Just another one gone
And the city moved on

Chorus
Were stuck here singing
Baby don’t you close your eyes
This could be our final time
You know I am horrible
At saying goodbye
I think of all you coulda done
At least you’ll stay forever young
I guess you picked the perfect way to die
Ohh
I guess you picked the perfect way to die
Bridge
Another dream lost
Another king and queen lost
Another broken promise
They refuse to make right
Ohh
Another night to live in fear
Ohh
Another night that you’re not here
Another reason to get out there and fight
Chorus
But I said
Baby don’t you close your eyes
This could be our final time
You know I am horrible
At saying goodbye
But I think of all you coulda done
At least you’ll stay forever young
I guess you picked the perfect way
To die

Ohh I guess you picked the perfect way….
