When you die Nothing happens Life continues Without you Down on down It's my turn in line It's my time Down on down Beneath the ground Death will find you Myself too We're not immune Down on down It's my turn in line It's my time Down on down Beneath the ground
2.
Life is an arrow Encircling itself The thing about this arrow Is that it's got no end or origin Life is bone marrow Isn't it something or else There's nothing on this side Of this I didn't ask to be born Like a bad habit Just no heaven please Just know (Heaven please) My life My life
3.
Looking down at my wristwatch Grinding my teeth, I feel weak My jaw is locking I've had dreams where I get in a car crash Sometimes I dream the future I will die Eventually My body Should be composted That way I'll get to have an afterlife Decomposing self I could be a plant Maybe a mushroom I will be useful in death too I will haunt you If it works like that I'm going to I will die Eventually My body Should be composted
4.
Though you've played at life and lost Sorrow's turned your brain to frost I will melt your mind again There's no percentage in remember the past It's time to learn to live at last Come with me Leave yesterday behind Take a giant step outside your mind Stare at me in disbelief Say for you there's no relief I swear I'll prove you wrong Stuck in your lonely room Staring back in silent gloom That's not where you belong Come with me I'll take you where The taste of life is green Everyday holds wonders to be seen Come with me Leave yesterday behind Take a giant step outside your mind There's no percentage in Remembering the past It's time to learn to live at last Come with me I'll take you where The taste of life is green Everyday holds wonders to be seen Come with me Leave yesterday behind Take a giant step outside your mind

Earth stops Turns the other direction Maple calls, coin collection Yet another direction, we're reliving the past I couldn't say That we're going out of business We're not doing the dishes this year We're not doing the dishes this year We're not doing the dishes this year Our love remains incorporated In bed I often feel naked

All the plants and the animals collide Inside the factory farm What's growing now It's the next great disease Everyone's getting sick Where will you find the protein Have you ever tried the plants Neither us nor the animals have to suffer Contagious disease breeds inside ourselves When we don't think of other beings Where will you find the protein Have you ever tried the plants Neither us nor the animals have to suffer Peace love and happiness or settle for what's realistic
