Lyrics

The Grim Reaper
written by: Reed Ferguson

My father said, “Don’t you know it’ll drag you down
Into the dust where you will drown?
You’ll choke on dirt. Wipe that smirk away
‘cause now you are falling prey”

I know I’ll cause the death of myself one day
I know I’ll die before I live that life I crave
Can’t help this burning in my guts for one more high
I know I’ll try before I bite the dust today

My father then looked me in the eye
Said, “Son, I’ll give you one last try
Unless you want to meet the Grim Reaper tonight”
But I thought that sounded nice
(There’s something wrong with me!)

I know I’ll cause the death of myself one day
I know I’ll die before I live that life I crave
Can’t help this burning in my guts for one more high
I know I’ll try before I bite the dust today

Now I’ve fallen prey to the needle in the vein
Nobody saves me when I think I’ve gone insane
I’m sorry, Father, I’m afraid it may be too late

I know I’ll cause the death of myself one day
I know I’ll die before I live that life I crave
Can’t help this burning in my guts for one more high
Now I think I’d like to meet the Grim Reaper tonight
