The Lyrics

It took a few years of growing up before I came to appreciate what is known as "a chuckle for the gallows." After all, death makes a mockery of everything in this world that we hold dear by ensuring that sooner or later, we won't be around to enjoy it.
Hear me whisper in your ear
The sting you're gonna feel;
There's nothing you can do
To stop its coming.

When you go, you go alone;
No matter who you are,
One day it all just halts:

You might get taken where you are;
Or one day not wake up at all;
but somehow, you'll die!

Yeah, well you're gonna die!

Can't come back when you've been killed;
The good you've never known
You'll never know at all
When life disowns you.

Overthrows us all, you know:
A Martian and Earthman
Will both end up the same;
Can't get around it.

Just can't escape it, there you are;
You can't do anything at all;
That's why you will die!
(Ooh, die!)

You can't do anything when the destruction is complete:
You're in pieces; you are disgusting; that's all!
Oh, hey,
Take a look around you.
What you see is what you are:
And what you are is earthworm food.
Oh, hey,
(If you're) gonna get buried, you'll rot away.

(Ooh, ooh!)
(Ooh, ooh...)

We can't do anything, the slaughter's thorough and complete:
Every species, this destruction takes all!
Oh, hey,
Take a look around you.
You can see you won't get far,
'Cause all we are is earthworm food;
Oh, hey,
(Either) gonna get buried, or blown away!

When you don't wake up, there you are.
(You can't do anything.)

(You die!)
You can't do anything when your destruction is complete:
(You die!)
The "release" is worse than nothing that all!
(You die!)
We can't do anything, our slaughter's thorough and complete:
(You die!)
We'll be pieces, we'll be nothing at all
(Oh, oh, we'll die!)
We'll die and then we'll meet what lies beyond the things we knew
(Yeah, die!)
You're gonna die and meet your doom;
We'll die and meet our doom;
We'll be done away, done away, done away...
Some people never do realize why this inevitable end is so funny; too bad for them.

DKTOS, so I cant vote.:) But your right about one thing, we all die and then you will become the ( Wo) Man in the Box.:(

I believe it's only natural to be skeptical when coming into this song, but dude this was awsome. Although, I'm not sure if I should be distrubed I found it moderately funny.

Offender, read the last comment on your parody that got me heated up quite a bit ( you know the one ). Keep up writing man, your stuff is very good ( even though I DKTOS alot of the time ). PS- Saw that " All Ones From Me " parody. I made a similar one called " Grudge Factory ". PSS- My typing skills suck bad ( see " Bad Typing " ), so don't bag me for missing letters here and there or apostrophied "s" because also my dial up is flawed right now as well ( see " Netzero/Dial Up Sucks " ) and have to rush to type as it locks up my computer as well ( sometimes ). PSSS ( yeah it's getting ridiculous now ), your " Imagine " parody was, what would Susanna Viljanen say, oh yeah, " thought provoking " ( and hilarious, in a morbid sort of way ).
Offender - April 19, 2005 - Report this comment
Yeah, I know what you mean. By the way, one trick that might get you around the dial-up problem is to compose the piece on your computer first, and then copy it straight to the submission form. (That saves time typing when your computer might lock up at any moment.) I know everyone makes mistakes. It's just the obnoxiously sloppy people who bug me: you know, the ones who obviously aren't even trying. I've got a lot of things to do at the moment, so there are likely to be some long gaps between parody submissions, but I'll try to keep the stuff coming.

Thanks for the tip. I have heard that many parodists do it that way as you can spell-check and save and unfinished work in progress rather than making numerous corrections on paper ( my archaic way ). PS- If you REALLY want to piss people off ( and live up to your moniker ) do a parody of " Yesterday " called " Death Camp Days ". I don't have the balls to post it or even get past a parody title ( it would be probably the most unfunny and insulting parody ever written ).

Hm, yes, that is an interesting idea... You did see my "Nazi Gay" parody, I hope? I think it runs a bit along those lines. "Death Camp Days" would be offensive, sure, but did it occur to you that such a song might be funny in the same way Charlie Brown is funny (because nothing ever goes right for him)? It's not for nothing that the Jews came up with that comicial yiddish expression, "Oy vey!"

Wow. I'm literally in tears. EXCELLENTLY paced, and so hilariously sinister...
