I Woke Up Dead Today

I Woke Up Dead Today

I woke up dead today, what an awful shame
But who was the culprit, who was to blame
Who had the nerve to extinguish my flame
Sadly, I must admit, the fault was all mine
Way too many cigarettes, far too much wine
Their heartfelt pleas I refused to heed
Used nicotine and alcohol to fill my need
Warned by many, but I ignored all
In my self destruction, I wouldn't stall
For you these words I have written down
Hope you enjoyed your night on the town
Put down that cigarette, set down that glass
You're killing yourself, you mindless ass
No matter the depth of your sorrow
Self abuse may deny you tomorrow
Change your ways before you too
Share my fate which you can't undo
I hope these words have awakened you
I woke up dead today, what an awful shame
My self destruction now seems so lame
I pray your fate won't be the same
