about

death seems to come up alot in my songs... i notice it so insert the andidote

lyrics

breakfast in the mornin out before first light
workin as a stevedore don't leave me time to write
seems like only yesterday my first day at school
hangin in around 70 like a rocket it all flew

we're good as good as good as good as gone
good as good as good good as good as gone

2.
we'll go on without you not to say we won't miss you
like those we leave behind will miss us for awhile
left me my possessions not needed where I'm going
gotta seize the day imagination reachin long

the flight of the jet goes right on through
cumulous clouds and the molecule
meets the runway tires pitchin smoke
a sigh of relief among the travelin folk

3.
might come back as a cockroach that might be my fate
or just go deep unconscious and never come awake
or settle in some heaven tormented in some hell
diminish into the woodwork fade like an old church bell

we're good as good as good as good as gone
good as good as good good as good as gone

4.
even the Mona Lisa will turn to dust one day
and the sun will rise some morning as one gigantic bang
but it's all right all is well we are beyond harm
ultimately underneath at the heartbeat bottom essence we are

we're good as good as good as good as gone
good as good as good good as good as gone
