Lyrics

 Sleep and dream of this
 Death angel's kiss
 Brings final bliss
 Completely
 
     Empty they say,
     Death, won't you let me stay?
 
     Empty they say,
     Death, hear me call your name,
     Call your name...
 
         ...suicide 
         I've already died
         You're just the funeral 
         I've been waiting for
 
         ...cyanide
         Living dead inside
         Break this empty shell forever more
 
 Wait, wait patiently
 Your death black wings
 Unfolding sleep
 Spreading o'er me
 
     Empty they say,
     Death, won't you let me stay?
 
     Empty they say,
     Death, hear me call your name,
     Call your name...
 
         ...suicide 
         I've already died
         You're just the funeral 
         I've been waiting for
 
         ...cyanide
         Living dead inside
         Break this empty shell forever more
 
 Say, is that rain or are they tears?
 That has stained your concrete face for years
 The crying, weeping, shedding strife
 Year after year, life after life
 
 An air of freshly broken ground
 A concrete angel lit right down 
 Upon the grave which swallows fast
 It's peace at last, peace at last!
 
     Empty they say,
     Death, won't you let me stay?
 
     Empty they say,
     Death, hear me call your name,
     Call your name...
 
         ...suicide 
         I've already died
         You're just the funeral 
         I've been waiting for
 
         ...cyanide
         Living dead inside
         Break this empty shell forever more
 
 Forevermore (suicide)
 Forevermore (suicide)
 It's just the funeral 
 I've been waiting for
