I’m too old,
too tired,
too lazy
to run in to work.

I hold my breath until I fall down.

Thoughts will come tomorrow.

You will live only to die alone.

It’s OK no one gets through it.

You’re going home.
You’re going home.
You’re going home.
You’re going home.

Stop don’t
go stealing our time.

Too long, too long
And we’re alone – a-

Too far gone in the flowers
God, these roses look so lonely lonely.

Too far gone in the flowers,
God, these roses need a friend like me.
