Fade to Black

Don't come any closer
There's no more help to offer
Don't leave the comforts of your world
If you value those you love
And the lives you're living

We've taken all that's holy
We've tasted hope and glory
We sleep in sorrow with the dogs
Some take tomorrow as it comes
And for some it fades to black

Drink because your spirit's heavy
Drink because that's all that's left here
Drink and wash the past down to your grave
Fewer children every day
And the future goes away

Take your gun and load it slowly
Hold it in your hand so boldly
Point it to your head and count to five
One through four seem like forever
Then on five all fades to black
