Do Not Resucitate

Sorry I missed your call
I can't come to the phone right now
Don't bother with a message
I'm staying on the floor for now
At least until I'm found
If they have time to reach the narcan
If they know cpr
If anyone comes for me
Though I'll probably steal their car
Just to say thanks for saving me

Because no one lies here turning blue
Because life's going right
No one ODs on heroin
Solely to get high
And no one shoots up heroin
Because they wanna live through the night
At least that's what dozens of dead friends said
And what I tell the EMTs

Do Not Resucitate me
Do Not Resucitate me
I signed a goddamn form so you could let me die
Don't Resucitate me
Don't Resucitate me
I'm pretty mad now about the wasted high
Do Not Resucitate me
Do Not Resucitate me
I'll never forgive you for saving my life

It's been a long road from the moment I bought
The only thing I never wanted
Since that day of my birth
Each bad day's been followed by one that is worse
And I'm beginning to think I'm haunted

So don't waste narcan or tears on me
And don't call E-M-S for me
I'm sorry I'm not answering the phone
But nobody's who I wanna see
Leave me alone to my misery
Just let it be the end for me

Do Not Resucitate me
Do Not Resucitate me
No one overdoses accidentally
Do Not Resucitate me
Do Not Resucitate me
If you're really my friend you will just let me be
Do Not Resucitate me
Do Not Resucitate me
Please DoN't Resucitate me
Because this life isn't something I wanted
Or anything I wanna keep-

When I was using my old (now mostly deceased) junkie friends and I all joked about our DNRs but while we all wanted to die no one wanted to be the one to let their friend go. I've outlived most of them by now, and I'm only 25. I'm still pretty bitter at the ones who died without me but couldn't let me go when it was their call
