I felt a burst inside my brain

and thought, distinctly clear;

calmly, calmly

calmly, calmly

“so this is how I die”

 

I felt my foot turn on the curb

ungainly as the taxi came

and calmly, calmly

calmly, calmly

“this is how I die”

 

I felt the hoof fall

saw the knife

felt the mud slip

cracked my neck

 

and always

always

somehow always

somehow

somehow

I say

 

calmly, calmly

calmly, calmly

“this is how I die”

 

I haven't yet, I have not yet

and I am much afraid of death

but every time I hold my breath

I know

I know

I know

 

that

 

calmly, calmly

calmly, calmly

 

calmly, calmly

calmly, calmly

 

that is how I'll die.
