"Dead as dead can be," my doctor tells me
But I just can't believe him, never the optimistic one
I'm sure of your ability to become my perfect enemy
Wake up and face me, don't play dead cause maybe
Someday I will walk away and say, "You disappoint me,"
Maybe you're better off this way

Leaning over you here, cold and catatonic
I catch a brief reflection of what you could and might have been
It's your right and your ability
To become... my perfect enemy...

Wake up (we'll catch you) and face me (come on now),
Don't play dead (don't play dead)
Cause maybe (because maybe)
Someday I'll (someday I'll) walk away and say, "You disappoint me,"
Maybe you're better off this way

Maybe you're better off this way
Maybe you're better off this way
Maybe you're better off this way
You're better of this... you're better off this...
Maybe you're better off!

Wake up (why can't you) and face me (come on now),
Don't play dead (don't play dead)
Cause maybe (because maybe)
Someday I'll (someday I'll) walk away and say, "You fucking disappoint me!"
Maybe you're better off this way

Go ahead and play dead (go)
I know that you can hear this (go)
Go ahead and play dead (go)
Why can't you turn and face me? (wake up)
Why can't you turn and face me? (wake up)
Why can't you turn and face me? (wake up)
Why can't you turn and face me? (you)
You fucking disappoint me!

Passive aggressive bullshit

    I always saw that two men who were of course enemies and then one day one of the men dies. The still living man then thinks that he is still alive and by not waking up he is being 'Passive Aggressive'. Of Course, the man gets pissed off and starts to yell XD... sorry... jaaa... I'll just shutu up know...
