lyrics

Well all your favorite actors died
And all your favorite bands sold out
And you never have sufficient funds inside your bank account
And the book that you were reading
It was missing the last page
And you had to make a choice to finish it or throw it away
And you can parallel that problem
To life , or love, or death
But if you can’t see what the ending’s like, why are you worried about it

But you’re not the only one that’s scared of the afterlife
And you’re not the only one that’s haunted by the ghosts of time
But you should realize
As much as you think you control your life you can’t control when it’s time to die
As much as you think you control your life you can’t control when it’s time to die

And all your favorite authors lied
There was no truth to what they wrote about
And that pretty bird that sang to you has sadly flown south
And you used to be so happy, but now you sit around and pout
And all the drinking ruins all the words that come out of your mouth

But we’ll just keep on shaving minutes off our lives
And we’ll always do the things we know aren’t right
But we’ll sing tonight
If your number came up in the middle of the night
Could you say that you enjoyed your life?
If your number came up in the middle of the night
Could you say that you enjoyed your life?
