Death, Dying And Channel 5 - Lyrics

The reaper walks down your avenue
He likes to stop in when you don't know what to do
Hope you've got nothing planned today
And somewhere you swear you remember
You heard someone say

Today's a good day to die
Or so says that actor down on Channel 5
When you're just about living, you're just about dying
And it's all the same thing
When you're just about living, you're just about dying
And they're both the same thing

"You're looking down in Kansas", he said
Well, it's hard to look thrilled when you're half past dead
So the little boy has to kill his self
So Mom and Dad can put more food on their shelf

And today's a good day to die
So they say on that movie down on Channel 5
When you're just about living, you're just about dying
And it's all the same thing
When you're just about living, you're just about dying
And they're both the same thing

Maybe we're just waking up to die anyway
Maybe we're just waking up to die

I knew a man, he had a girl
They built their whole house in a big old world
And now she looks at him with a tear stained face

Maybe we're just waking up to die anyway
Maybe we're just waking up to die

He had two jobs and he was never home
And when he came back she'd still be in bed alone
Looking at him with a tear stained face

Maybe we're just waking up to die just in case
Maybe we're just waking up and want to try

The reaper walks down my alleyway, he drops right in
When I don't know what to say, if you're the rainy day man
Then go away and come again some other day

And it's not such a good day to die
I turned off the man on Channel 5 anyway
When you're just about living, you're just about dying
And it's all the same thing
When you're just about living, you're just about dying
And they're both the same thing

Maybe we're just waking up to try anyway
Maybe we're just waking up to try
