"No more lying friends, wanting tragic ends, though they do pretend, they won't go when I go..."
"All around me are familiar faces, worn out places, worn out faces, bright and early for the daily races, going nowhere, going nowhere, the tears are filling up their glasses, no expression, no expression, hide my head I want to hide my sorrow, no tomorrow, no tomorrow."
"I hurt myself today... to see if I still feel... I focus on the pain... the only thing that's real... the needle tears a hole... the old familiar sting... try to kill it all away... but I remember everything... what have I become, my sweetest friend? Everyone I know... goes away... in the end... And you could have it all... my empire of dirt... I will let you down... I will make you hurt."

And all the husbands and all the sons all the lovers gone they make no difference, no difference in the end, still hear the women say, 'Your daddy died a hero!' In the name of God and man, mother's pride, his lifeless eyes, he's a soldier now forevermore. He'll hold a gun, till Kingdom come."
"The tears come streaming down your face, when you lose something you can't replace, when you someone but it goes to waste, could it be worse?"

When he walked into the bedroom...she said, 'Jamie, I'm going away, and I won't be coming back. I'm dying...(but) there's a secret, a special secret: I'll still be there watching over you. I'll build you a rainbow... way up high above... send down a sunbeam... all plumb full of love... sprinkle down raindrops...teardrops of joy..."
Music to bawl your eyes out and then slit your wrists to.
