Kill me in the middle of the night
Can someone please just do me a favor
Kill me in the middle of the night

I don't wanna be awake to see it happen, the thought frightens me
Some want a thrilling exodus, I fear that's not right for me
So come around when you hear that clock striking 3AM
Don't bother knocking, it's unlocked, walk right in
Make yourself at home, take care not to rouse me
Staring down a barrel just sounds so very lousy
I don't wanna spend my last moments in hysterics
Cryin like a coward, imprisoned within my own barracks (no)
Maybe it'd be cool if you could wait until my parents go naturally
So they don't have to see such a tragedy
But shit, that just means I have to see them die
Such a selfish thought, but it nags at me inside
And nothing helps it stop, believe me I have tried and I've tried
But there ain't nothing to be gained from an eye for an eye
Though we ain't stuck side by side, stride by stride
They're why I've survived, I ain't too fly to hide my pride

But you'd better walk the walk if you talk that talk
Just kill me in the middle of the night
Drag me to the top of the roof and drop me off
Just kill me in the middle of the night
Hold me hostage while you lick shots at the cops
Just kill me in the middle of the night
Gag me with a gasoline soaked cloth
Just kill me in the middle of the night


Early morning would be fine too
I usually don't gain consciousness til about high noon
So what's it gonna be, huh? Fuck it, use a sledgehammer
Ain't like it's gonna leave me any deader than one of the old standards
I'll go out hollerin 'Hosanna', probably squealing it
Not because it hurts, but just so you know that I'm feeling it
As long as you don't torture me and tease me I can deal with it
And as a way of saying thank you, feel free to steal some shit
Leave the microwave and blender, those are my roommate's
But I got food inside the fridge, heat up two plates
How could I be mad, if it happens, that's my true fate
They say this life is a test, today's the due date

It ain't too late, mi casa es la suya
Kill me in the middle of the night
Savor the adrenaline rush as it moves through ya
Kill me in the middle of the night
Tie me up and toss me in a tank with barracudas
Kill me in the middle of the night
Pop me open like a can of albacore tuna
Kill me in the middle of the night


Maybe mother nature will just take the task upon herself
Not a soul in sight to bare witness to my helpless yelp
As my life force is slowly drained out of me
And transferred to a new host, I do toast to the powers that be
Corralled six feet under the ground with all my new friends
My neighbor to the left of me just moved in
The other one to the right of is a hundred year tenant
He's rollin in his grave sayin I shoulda repented
It's kind of nice knowing I can choose when to end it
And begin the sentence, but I'd rather make you the defendant
Take the weight off my shoulders for me (please)
If you could, it would be splendid
One more time in case you've been inattentive

Throw me out a thirteenth story window, impale me on a fence
Kill me in the middle of the night
You can play this in the courtroom when they ask for your defense
Just kill me in the middle of the night
If I'm wide awake and weary would you wait a while longer
Kill me in the middle of the night
Harness every bit of strength you can conjure
Kill me in the middle of the night

Not tonight
Not tomorrow night
Maybe sometime next week
Let me check my schedule
