The Lyrics

More of a serious parody, but hey it's still a parody.
I got a letter from Afghanistan
I read it when it came
The envelope was empty
At least it seemed the same

Didn't see the tiny powder
I was poisoned right away
Oh no, oh no, my skin is red
It's in my veins

I can almost touch Heaven
When I'm lying on my bed
And to think its from a little dust
Now someday soon I will be dead

When the envelope's closed tightly
Never open it too wide
Oh no, oh no
I was not expecting to die

For a second I let my guard down
Nothing I can do 'bout that
I completely forgot dear
Curiosity killed the cat
Oh no, oh no
This danger is a fact

If there's a chance i would take it
To just redo that day
We all have life, please don't waste it
Watch your back and you might stay

We're frightened but its OK
Now I can just lay still
Oh no... oh no
We can't let them take a kill
