lyrics

Hey, did you hear that I died?
Hey, did you hear that I died, old chum?
It was terrible

I saw it coming like a second before
From then until it happened, well I've never lived more
Then the pain came

Songs and books and how I killed that bird
Ketchup and sex and my first dirty word
Moving in, moving out and along with the herd

Then I bleat like a sheep on the slaughterhouse floor
And I winced when I realized I couldn't be alive anymore

Did you hear that I died?
Hey, did you hear that I died, old chum?
It was terrible

I saw it coming like a second before
From then until it happened, well I've never lived more
Then the pain came

So many girls who were out of my reach
Chocolate and dogs and one perfect peach
Learning good, learning wrong and doing a little bit of each

I cried out like a child that no one protects
Might have died with a smile
but was worrying about what comes next

Hey, did you hear that I died?
Hey, did you hear that I died?
Did you hear that I died?
Did you hear that I died?
Did you hear that I died?
