I dressed for death
I wished it in,
Hoping it would drown my sin

These chains weigh down my poor frail heart
Everything seems to tear me apart

I'm ripped at the seams,
Straight down to the core
I'd like to be washed away to nothing more

Nothing but death can take me now,
I'm worried so please teach me how

I want to go easy,
I want to go free,
I need to make this easy for me

The weight of this burden is too much to bear
I wish I could stay here with little care

My life seems so reckless
I need to contain,
My actions before I go insane

Take me now, Death,
Make me free
Please, dear God, make this easy on me...
