about

A young man's perspective on death, and by extension, nearly everything else

lyrics

You know what they say
When they tell you to seize the day
you know what they say
don't know life till it's gone
Old man death
don't come with sticks and stones
he comes with a pillow
to claim your bones
and he is gentle
places it on your face
there it's soft and weightless
like a flower in space

And the devil has the deal
fortune spins the wheel
and its not just how we feel
it's more how you play the game

It's hard to hold on
when your hands are tied
'specially when the bonds
are chains from your mind
but hold on my friend
hold on again
reach out and grasp
my outstretched hand

And the devil has the deal
fortune spins the wheel
and its not just how we feel
it's more how you play the game

Where are you going?
I don't understand
How will you get there?
What happens then?

Don't worry here
I won't go to far
and you will see me again
out among the stars

And the devil lost the deal
my hand spins the wheel
and now that it matters
how we feel
its still how you play
still how you play
the game
still how you play
the game
