(Out of time...)
Doc, I'm dying, I'm feeling compromised (feeling compromised)
And so dehumanized (and so dehumanized)
I lost my final fight to disease, I feel that this is where it ends
I need that shot to enter my vein
My Brompton Cocktail blend

'Cause I can't feel my face
I won't struggle on
In a world so cold
In a world so wrong

I'm not running away, been fighting this so long (so long)
Such a price that we pay, we gotta be so strong
In a lie...

I'm tired, induced euphoria (induced euphoria)
To help me move along (help me move along)
I wanna meet my maker in peace, I want to feel alive again
So put that smile back on my face and mix it strong my friend

'Cause I can't feel my face
I won't struggle on
In a world so cold
In a world so wrong

I'm not running away, been fighting this so long (so long)
Such a price that we pay, we gotta be so strong
And I take my life tonight 'cause I have the right to die how I wanna
And leave how I arrived, so alive

I believe my sins will be forgiven
And I believe my choice will save me from this life
Please don't question why
My sins have been forgotten
I believe I'll find peace in afterlife
Please don't question why I left this way

'Cause I can't feel my face
I won't struggle on
In a world so cold
In a world so wrong

I'm not running away, been fighting this so long (so long)
Such a price that we pay, we gotta be so strong
And I take my life tonight 'cause I have the right to die how I wanna
And leave how I arrived, so alive, Alive

    I must disagree with dear god because had they said they were taking brompton cocktail to face their fear it would be similar to what you suggested. But I must say xMeganSevenfold got it on the dot. Just by some of the lyrics they choose it makes very much sense that we do have a choice if we are in pain, but the problem with that statement is people don't see he is taking about disease, some think its pain such as peer pressure, parents divorce, loss of family member etc... and some see that instead of enduring it they decide to commit suicide. But this song is very much taking about the diseases many people suffer.

    people always assume songs involving death are bad. This song is purely about the fact that after being ill for so long he wishes to die peacefully so as to escape a heartless world

    on a more metaphorical level i think he means we need to face our fears. We have to end whatever is killing us.

    Brompton Cocktail originated in the UK. It's cocaine, heroin and alcohol and is given to cancer patients when they were on their deathbeds. It would bring your life back and give you a sense of grand euphoria and then your family would see you well for one last time before it killed you. You used to be able to choose that you wanted to die but now you really can't. They're pretty much saying that you should have that choice if you're in pain and suffering,

    They're speaking of being terminally ill, and since they should be given the same piece as when they came into life as exiting it, they want a Brompton Cocktail, I can't feel my face, Heroin Cocaine Amphetamines Alcohol And Chloropromazine, you'd be the numbest happiest most sociable terminally ill person around.

    You could have hours to live and you'd be happy.
