Lyrics
She was in pain but we never thought she'd do it
Never again, but it was her second try
We thought she was good, she said she'd gotten through it
No reason she should, give up and choose to die
Did she find a better place, permanently erase
the complicated life she couldn't face

She gave up on us, we're the ones that loved her She couldn't trust, there was help she couldn't find
End it or bust, she thought she had it covered Just ashes and dust, for the ones she left behind

He shocked the world, never thought that he would do it
He had the girl, money, power and fame
Reality blurred, this life he chose to screw it
Pain never heard, god it's such a shame
How can we identify, that he'd choose to die
when all we saw's the life that was a lie
He gave up on us, we're the ones that loved him He couldn't trust, there was help he couldn't find
End it or bust, we never thought he'd give in Just ashes and dust, for the ones he left behind

How can we tell, who will be the next one
they never yell, just go off quietly
they make the headlines, it leads the morning's first run
When somebody finds, what's horrible to see
And we all will start to cry, what's the reason why
they gave up on it all but did they try
They gave up on us, we're the ones that loved them They couldn't trust, there was help they couldn't find
End it or bust, we thought they had it going Just ashes and dust, for the ones they left behind
