She arrived unannounced
All at once she’s in my house
Sat at my table and eating my food
She said "don’t think twice
About rolling a dice
To decide upon what to do"

I don’t want you to go
Yeah we need each other now
But I saw the look that shot right through her lie

She aspires to defeat
Poisons stuck on repeat
Taken slowly as remedies
To my surprise she dispensed
Reasons in her defence
To beat the postcode lottery

I don’t want you to go
Yeah we need each other now
But I saw the look that shook me out of time

But the time it takes to mend our mistakes is short
Restless and weary and clearly not a ghost, yet
But hopeless and stubbornly making the most

She fought right to the end
Hoping not to depend
On the mood of a bureaucrat
How come I can’t tell
If she’s in heaven or hell
And would welcome the final whistle

Now she’s ready to go
We don’t need each other now
But I felt the book that made it seem alright
Now I’m ready to go
I don’t feel like I know
I’ll ask you once nicely, twice politely
Three times, four times, five times Get Out!
