Bad Signs

Today I found a dead bird laying in my driveway

Some people say that means Death is on its way

That’d usually scare me but nowadays it’s been hard to pray

Looking at my life I’d probably rather be dead anyway

Drinking as much as I can to silence my thoughts

In violation of my probation my future is lost

Wonder who’d miss me if they found out I was offed

The Devil whispers “Nice try” now it’s time to pay the cost

My head below water, bills and legal fees drag me down

At this rate I might be the first one to ever touch the ocean’s ground

Screaming for help but no one hears a sound

When I’m gone I just wonder how long it’ll take till I’m found
