Painless Pills

Before you this day
I lay bare
Naked as I come
With no will of mine
By the lust of men
Into a world of shame
Where all men are but vain
Do this wrong, I submit
To this quiet exit of the night

Painless pills,
Come and cure
All my vile contagion
Into darkness of countless years
Where no light shines on pains
Shut the doors of mortal’s pride
Into worms of vanities and lust.

When this story is told
Let it report death of a valiant
Route trod alone by brave men
As I assay through this path unto doom
Let no man from earth know
The way by which I ended.

Painless pills from this night,
Open the gates wide
And close it behind me forever.
