I’m your enemy while I live
But when I cease to breath

I become your good friend
Twist the facts to show remorse

I hated you, you hated me
That’s the truth, can’t you see

A person lives and is hated
How is it, it happens
They die and get respected
Does death pay their debt

You hate me when I’m alive
You respect me when I’m dead
Remember how you live your life
The difference it doesn’t make
No matter how, how you live
Everyone’s goals are different
But we all reach the one place
With silk walls, under the ground
