The Lyrics

i got every reason on earth to be mad
cause i've just lost the only life i had
and if i could get my way
i'd be back on the show today
but i can't
cause i died instead

i got a gash on my shoulder, i'm blistered on my feet
run down by a truck out on the street
and the vermin eat me now
i'd try to come to life somehow
but i can't
cause i died instead

don't wanna die and get people scared
they all cry like they really care
the reaper's taken me away-hay
and i doubt i'll come back someday

but if i do, i will not hide, i'll see my friends
i'm gonna break the rules of mortal men
yeah, i'm gonna break 'em in two
and show you what a reborn boy can do
but i can't
cause i died instead

don't wanna die and get people scared
i get shy when my soul is bared
my body's gonna rot away-hay
but i'll grow flesh again someday

and when i do, you'd better be kind to me
cause it has broke my heart, now, can't you see?
yes it's been broken in two
guess a baked potato will just have to do
but it don't
so i'll die instead
