R.I.P Vic Chesnutt

R.I.P Vic Chesnutt, dead of a drug overdose @ 45 Christmas Day after spending 2 days in a coma. This song is amazing and it’s really hard to believe how prophetic it is. And I almost posted it last week. Would have been weird…

“I am a man
I am self-aware
And everywhere I go
You’re always right there with me

I’ve flirted with you all my life
Even kissed you once or twice
And to this day I swear it was nice
But clearly I was not ready

When you touched a friend of mine
I thought I would lose my mind
But I found out with time that
really I was was not ready, no no

Oh, Death
Oh, Death
Oh, Death
Really, I’m not ready

Oh, Death you hector me
Decimate those dear to me
Tease me with your sweet release
You are cruel and you are constant

When my mom was cancer sick
She fought but then succumb to it
But you made her beg for it
Lord Jesus, please I’m ready.

Oh, Death
Oh, Death
Oh, Death
Really, I’m not ready”
