I'm dreading the door
and the coconut on the floor
I filled all the bismarks with gore

So the living will follow
me home and swallow me whole
I wake up again and I go

Life can be a chore
Still to die could be such a bore
So I watch the things I ask for

Cos the living will follow
me home and swallow me whole
Cos the living will borrow
your breath, tomorrow your soul
And you'll never get back what they stole
You're slowly full of holes

I should not complain
They have not yet got to my brain
But they have the smell all the same

It's a wage
not a cage
and it pays
to stay living
all this rage
and you'll stay
with the living
