Now I'm Dead
Now I’m dead I’d like to say,
some words to all who passed my way.
I’d like to thank you for the part
you played in texturing my heart.
Yes, now I’ve gone, but not so far,
I’d like to tell you how things are.
To you who sought nothing but gain
you wasted life and gained true shame.
To those who’s friendship was so true,
now I live on as part of you!
Life carries on when you are dead
and you’ll account for things you said.
You cannot lie within your mind,
so inner secrets all will find.
Alas with hatred in your head
you’re going to be a long time dead,
and universal law you’ll find
ensures you'll be with your own kind!
You learn your lessons on Earth’s floor
not when you pass through Heaven’s door.
So think about the things you’ve done
and what these meant to everyone.
Have you helped folks upon their way
or helped yourself and made them pay?
If so, I fear you’ll have no friends
to help you now to make amends!
Yes, now I’ve died I’d like to say,
these words to those who helped my way.
Thank you all for being kind
your presence stays within my mind.
But those who tried to make me pay,
know every dog has their own day.
As you come knocking on the door
you’ll go back where you were before!
Returning to the fires of hell
where souls are just an empty shell.
In pure damnation you must burn,
for there’s a lesson you must learn.
That evil always finds its source,
and this time that was you of course.
So if again you’re granted birth,
behave much better when on earth!
Yes now I’m dead, I’d like to say,
life isn’t just a little play.
It’s serious with fun and pain
but live it right and you will gain
true happiness beyond compare,
with fun that everyone can share.
But live it wrong and you’ll soon know,
what waits for fools like you below!
