Extreme – Better Off Dead lyrics

I heard your mother died
Just a few days ago
And tears fill your eyes with grief and sorrow
Cause you to question why because you don't know
If there comes a time when we all, when we all must go

Better off dead, if you're going to believe
Better off dead, in some painful (painful) memories
Better off dead, for truly you'll be free
Then to get down on your knees

Can you continue to go on and ignore?
A most certain fate you have grown, grown to abhor
If what you believe is true
And you have no remorse
No matter what you do, no matter what you do,
Oh, you'll be on, you'll be on the same course


Can someone tell me why I'm not better off dead?
I no longer deny these thoughts filling my head
I'm left to decide for this path I've been led
If there's more to life than just death


It's alright, I'm only bleeding
