If You Think Nobody Knows You're Alive

If You Think Nobody Knows You’re Alive

By Elton Camp

Have you suspected that it might be so 
If you should die, nobody would know

All would go on exactly as before
Though you’re not around any more

But thinking like that is quite incorrect
Some few watch us closely, by heck

As a means to prove that this is true
Here’s a little experiment you can do

Just two car payments don’t send in 
Then see that you’re missed, my friend

You’ll hear a loud knock at your door
To determine if you’re around anymore

Closely watch the one who did arrive
As away with your car they’ll drive
