lyrics

I'd say I don't want a funeral but nobody'd listen
Funerals are like birthday parties and they ain't always 'bout the victim
What matters is how it feels when all the attendees leave
Like when I was at a funeral and I heard my songs sung back to me

Death ain't no joke and death is eternal
Some think it's a bunch of clouds, church says its a fiery inferno
It could be blackness so maybe we'll finally rest
We might be unconscious thinking about how wrong everything went

But I'd think...
Please don't let my art die
It's about the only thing I did right with my life
I tried so hard to be obscure to make the right people smile
Please don't let my art die

I've seen some great stuff and I've seen some bad
But when I die some will pretend they always had my back
I was pretty hard to pin down, but they'll still exaggerate
While I'm floating in the ether thinking about the art I didn't make
Just think about my homebase, how they'd treat me like a joke
Yet sometimes I'd win awards when the people could vote
I don't deserve special treatment but I really tried my best
And I hope you don't forget that moving on to what comes next

Please don't let my art die
It's about the only thing I did right with my life
I tried so hard to be obscure to make the right people smile
Please don't let my art die

Please don't let my art die
It's about the only thing I did right with my life
I tried so hard to be obscure to make the right people smile
Please don't let my art die
Please don't let my art die
