They'll Clap When You're Gone
by Chelsea Wolfe

I can feel the walls closing in
And I don’t want to talk anymore
Wish I could quietly slip away
And leave you here with no void
The only reason I stay is to care for you
Everything else in me has atrophied
And I am cold and painless now
I want to live but I feel nothing
When can I die, when can I go
When will I be free, when will I know
When can I run, my legs are bound
When can I go, when can I go
Was born a blackened seed in the wild
And I never was a child
I was pulled right out of the sea
And the salt, it never left my body
Someone opened me up while I was sleeping
And filled my body right up with sand
I carry a heaviness like a mountain
It forces me to remain
Alive and ugly, alive and ugly
Alive and ugly, alive and ugly
When can I die, when can I go
When will I be free, when will I know
When can I run, my legs are bound
Can I leave here, knowing you’ll be strong without me
They’ll clap when you die
They’ll love you when you’re dead
And they’ll understand
And you’ll be forgiven then

"I can feel the walls closing in
and I don’t want to talk anymore
wish I could quietly slip away
and leave you here with no void
the only reason I stay is to care for you
everything else in me has atrophied
and I am cold and painless now
I want to live but I feel nothing
when can I die, when can I go
when will I be free, when will I know
when can I run – my legs are bound
when can I go, when can I go

was born a blackened seed in the wild
and I never was a child
I was pulled right out of the sea
and the salt – it never left my body
someone opened me up while I was sleeping
and filled my body right up with sand
I carry a heaviness like a mountain
it forces me to remain
alive and ugly, alive and ugly
alive and ugly, alive and ugly

when can I die, when can I go
when will I be free, when will I know
when can I run, my legs are bound
can I leave here, knowing you’ll be strong without me

they’ll clap when you die
they’ll love you when you’re dead
and they’ll understand
and you’ll be forgiven then "
