Me I've just died
But some machine keeps on humming
I'm just an extra piece
Of dead meat to keep running

Why won't you let me die in peace?
Why won't you let me die with some kind of honor?
Why won't you let me die at all?
I know you've got your principles

My body lies immobile
I left it days ago
And me I watch from somewhere
As the loved ones come and go

I see them glancing at the switch
I hear them whispering, "Maybe it's better that way"
I see the love turn into feelings
I know aren't quite the same
