Johnny's on the bathroom floor,
Dreaming of a better place.
Opens up his eyes, looks around,
falls down once more.
The world drifts around him,
creating on and on again.
He doesn't stir, he doesn't spend
an ounce of energy, waiting for
He will die alone,
He doesn't care.
Dreaming of a place,
where he can be free.
Sister tries the door,
tries to wake him from his sleep,
He isn't dying but he isn't living anymore.
They break down the door but he's
not living anymore,
He's just dreaming on the floor......
