about

It's time to put on a straight face
When your daddy dies
You're running out of time and disk space
Throw out the game plan and improvise
Get prepared for it
It's unfair, don't it
make you scared that you won't be there for it?
My southern accent was completely erased
when my daddy died

When your daddy dies,
completely shut your eyes
and make a big black blanket with your candled bones
When he's gone,
you won't be all alone
if you can snap his photo with your camera-phone

Hold onto me forever
It's a shocking find
While we're waiting for things to settle,
Go ahead, let yourself unwind
They will wait for your heart rate to rise
so high that you can't relate to them
You're becoming so clever
with your morbid mind

When your daddy dies,
completely shut your eyes
and make a big black blanket with your candled bones
When he's gone,
you won't be all alone
if you can snap his photo with your camera-phone

When you feel that loss,
you can slide across
I will tell you stories make your fingers bleed
You wanna shake your ass,
baby, with style and class?
I got more of those than you would ever need

You passed out in the blanket, son
Tried to revive you over and over
You may never get what you want
Death will find you, over and over
