Im washed up
This is is
Any type of career hangs by the skin of its teeth
As i moon walk down the isle
And the vultures are hanging off the side of the church she put a pound in the collection
you could see it hurt
Why these religious speeches?
We could make this life and incredible adventure
God damn that clergy man
God damn his lies
And a conga might be frowned upon in the house of the lord Put your cross away and smile
The crematorium incinerator wouldn’t work
The vicar said have you tried turning it off and on again? Someone got caught going round the back sneaking in Said the guest list is full but you better let me in
My mate used to work burning coffins, burning stiffs With rigamortis setting in
you've got to keep your uper lip stiff
and in turn,
in that urn you get with your dead relatives in
Its just brick dust
All you get is brick dust
When i go
The end of this journey
Lets go drinking like Weekend At Burnie’s The rounds are finally on me
I know i tried when i was alive
Jager for you
For my formaldehyde
It gets so cold down here
A friendly little worm visits once a year He talks of people wearing crocks Parking in disabled spots
Clean up that dog shit
This worm is sick of it
People who walk slow
And public displays of affection
