lyrics

I've been thinking about my own death
a family history of running out of breath

my gym teacher says I'm skinny fat
my brain, my heart, my lungs, my guts, my skin, my nodes, my prostate

and I keep asking

"can I live?"
no
I have to die

oh why can't I stay
forever here with you?

I've been working almost every day
I've been to college
I have an IRA

why should this small bod become a corpse?
my brain, my heart, my lungs, my guts, my breasts, my colon betray me

but then I have seen it's five o'clock
I have seen it's over I'm out
and I have seen the lights blink off I'm going home tonight

I have seen it's five o'clock
I have seen it's over I'm out
and I'm not breathing anymore

and I keep asking

"can I live?"
no
I have to die

oh why can't I stay
forever here with

company start
it's all okay
then company stop
it's not okay

buy right now
please

(David Gilmour-esque triple-tracked guitar solo)

and I won't die
