Nearly but not just quite



Am I dead yet
Am I dead yet
Leave me to die
Icicles freezing
Inside ones flame
See you later
No one to blame
Been to heaven
This is hell
Am I dead yet
No more stories to tell
Why are you still here?
Please go,please don't go
Bringing the curtain down
On this one man show
Am I dead yet
Am I dead yet
Nurse,nurse where are you?
