​My Own Death

This song is by The Unguided and appears on the album Hell Frost (2011).

Original video
You think you're safe
When you're living your simple fishbowl life
But I'm closer, I am closer than you think

I, the keeper of your time or what is left of it
I've counted your every second since you first entered this world

I like to sit beside you (Sit beside you)
Listen to your heart and thoughts (Your heart and thoughts)
You always think so much
Yet you do so very little (You do nothing, you do nothing)

You believe you are the one that I have forgotten (I have not)
I know you and I will never leave you (Never leave you)
Why do you always wait until it's too late? (Too late)
You want to know why I am here and where I'm taking you (My own death)

I observe how well you spend your limited seconds of life
And I'm afraid to say that you don't really use them, use them well

You misuse loved ones (Misuse loved ones)
But once you stop breathing (Stop breathing)
You all go back to the same thought (And it makes you heavy)
And it makes you heavy to carry

You believe you are the one that I have forgotten (I have not)
I know you and I will never leave you (Never leave you)
Why do you always wait until it's too late? (Too late)
You want to know why I am here and where I'm taking you (My own death)

My own death
"I hope they know how much I cared about them"
It's my own death
"How much I cared in the court of my heart"
My own death
And you dare to say that I'm the mystical one?
It's my own death
When it's you that always waits until it's too late

You believe you are the one that I have forgotten (I have not)
I know you and I will never leave you (Never leave you)
Why do you always wait until it's too late? (Too late)
You want to know why I am here and where I'm taking you (My own death)

You think you are safe
But I'm closer than you think
You think you are safe
In your "own" life
