Dead Dead Dead Dead Dead

I always knew that such a thing could happen
Seems like I spent my only life asleep
It's just so hard, hard to imagine
Mortality, it's not for me
But I'll be

Dead Dead Dead Dead Dead
Dead for a real long time
Hard to believe how dead I'll be

I will not miss the life I led
Or regret things I said
I won't be sad
But I'll be dead (dead dead dead)

I'd like to think that I will always miss you
But everything will surely fade away
I won't recall what it's like to kiss you
I won't recall a single day

I'll never see another raging river
Or create another work of art
I gave this world less than I could give her
I was afraid she'd break my heart
But when I'm

Dead Dead Dead Dead Dead
I'll be...

I left my home in search of every answer
I looked for love and mystery and fun
Where is the light, when night blows out the candle?
Where is the dream, when the dreamer's done?

If you should join me in the great hereafter
We'll gaze upon the great unknown my friend
There'll be no tears, there'll be no laughter
Be still my love, until the end
We'll be so

Dead Dead Dead Dead Dead
Dead for a real long time
Hard to believe how dead we'll be

We will not miss the life we led
Or regret things we said
We won't be sad
But we'll be dead (dead dead dead)
No, we won't be sad
We'll just be so dead

(Spoken: Hey, wait, we're still alive!
Wild, raucous New Orleans funeral music)
