Last Words
By Kenneth Cifuentes and Stephen Judd

(Lie to me… Use me… I’m not afraid of you… I’m not afraid of you)
And as I sat there drinking from a boot shaped glass I thought to myself,
My god!
This is what rock bottom looks like.

How could I resist you
I lost myself in your Kiss
I want to taste your lips
And hang on every word
A thousand lives I’ve lived in
It’s this one that I choose
I’m not afraid of distance
I only think of you

He ran away to find himself and I went there to find him
But all I found were a million renditions of “daddy wasn’t there" and "momma never loved me”
All battered in what smelt like the cheapest beer this dive bar had to offer its fine constituents
I swear by oil filter where my heart should be that I wanted to help him
Even though I knew deep down he enjoyed the tears
And the empty 911 calls after his wrists made love to his favorite ladies BIC
I later heard he eventually got it right with a gun... I felt sad.

How could I resist you (how could I resist you)
I lost myself in your Kiss (your sadness is tasty)
I want to taste your lips (let me taste it)
And hang on every word (you’re hanging me)
A thousand lives I’ve lived in (lie to me)
It’s this one that I choose (use me)
I’m not afraid of distance (I’m not afraid of you)
I only think of you (I’m not afraid of you)


I hear a lot of people say only the good die young
But I say that’s a load of crap cus I know a lot of young pieces of shit who bit it way too soon.
And those thoughts just get me wondering when my time’s gonna be up.
It’s not so much a fear of death as much as it is a fear of all the parties I’d miss
Cus god knows I love a good shit show.
I’ve been a very very bad boy
And at this point I’m exhausted by the idea so much
That all I care about is making sure I’m wearing a cute outfit when it happens
And I look fuckable at my wake. Yeah I said it… Yeah I said it.

How could I resist you (how could I resist you)
I lost myself in your Kiss (your sadness is tasty)
I want to taste your lips (let me taste it)
And hang on every word (you’re hanging me)
A thousand lives I’ve lived in (lie to me)
It’s this one that I choose (use me)
I’m not afraid of distance (I’m not afraid of you)
I only think of you (I’m not afraid of you)

I wasn’t asking him for a life decision.
I just wanted him to pick a movie.
I had it.
And as I walked out the door with a bag in each hand, that’s when it hit me.
Bang.
