Song for the Dead
It's late enough to go drivin
See what's mine
Life's the study of dying
How to do it right
You're a holy roller
If you're bet in the loose
If you're hanging around
I'm holdin the noose

Come a little bit closer
And get untied
In a hearse rollin over
Just a track in the line
Fuck it

Come on, let's go drivin
Come on, let's take a little ride
That's the study of dying
How to do it right
