lyrics

We thought his time had come,
His eyes were gone
His skin was purple like the turning of a leaf
And the firefighters slaved
For they thought he could be saved
We stood there helpless holding a brand new car battery

And the papers said later he returned home
Or maybe he never did go

If a line is drawn between death and this,
Would there be time spent in holding missing this?
Or if all is as one, and cannot be undone,
Then I'm as guilty or as holy as I wished

With nothing holding me here I'd go on
Slip on out

Someday you would find me
Lying in the ground with a good suit on
Just waitng for the worms to lick my bones
But I know...
Right now I'd probably fly to venus still searching for a chord to take me home

When my time does come
They might just play this song
They'll serve lunch and tea and there you may be
I may look on from above
Or it may be that with love, you just live on in the heart of anothers memory

If i spend too much time wondering about it,
I remove any doubts

Someday you would find me
Lying in the ground with a good suit on
Just waitng for the worms to lick my bones
But I know...
Right now I'd probably fly to venus still searching for a chord to take me home

You'll find I'm lying in the ground with a good suit on just waiting for the worms to carry on, now
Until the earth looks just like Venus and we're still pinin for a chord to take us home.
