[PART 1]

There's a place where people dance
While holding hands
To light of the moon
They sing to me tunes
And I'm not ugly
And loved ones that die still survive with no pain
And I'd lose if it went away
Just how do I begin to explain
By the way, your way or my way, it's ok, 'cos either way you don't have a name.

It's when she loved me
The taste of the dew and the music in you

It's the moment that don't let you down
A place you go, when there's no one around
The taste you know when the tears touch your mouth
What you think,
What you seek,
What you find,
And I know that it's always around
Yeah I know that it's always around.

I know you tend to complicate the choice you make
Oh, please don't lose something so beautiful
It's very lovely
But who am I to stay in this world that I made?
And I knew when your wind went away
Yet I knew 'cos you whispered my name

You said you loved me
But how could I ever explain such a thing?

It's the moment you open your eyes
While you think that they're all still alive
'Till the taste of the tears will remind
What you feel,
What you'd feared,
What you'd find,
It's the moment that won't let you down
It's your scream when you can't make a sound
It's all you see with the tears rolling down.

It's what you think
It's what you fear
But you know you will find...
Know that it's always around
Know that it's always around...

... and I know that it's always around.

[PART 2]

The children will sing
A song in the streets
Sounds like the 23rd psalm
To the music of 21 guns

The flowers are dead
In a vase by the bed
And the place where the old woman died
It's the same place she started her life
The papers will all say her name
And probably print the wrong day

The day that she died
'Cos we're all gonna die

Cute little puppies and bunnies and birds
People who sing when they don't know the words
You will die

'Cos we're all gonna die
It's just a part of life

Well men, women, children, hermaphrodites too
Animals, aliens and certainly you
You will die

'Cos we're all gonna die
'Cos everyone dies

And all that was and all that will be
Single-celled creatures and anything green
You will die

'Cos we're all gonna die
Start saying goodbye

From the moment you start up this miserable life
You should know that it's only a matter of time
'Till you die

'Cos we're all gonna die
Start saying goodbye

And morons at labels that think they know tunes
The army of lawyers who threaten to sue
The hookers that blow them when I just want food
And the ass-hats that download and never buy tunes
You shall die

'Cos we're all gonna die
I can't wait 'till you die

Oh, protestant, catholics and orthodox jews
You dumb scientologists and guys who bend spoons
Well buddhist... well sorta, and atheists too
All you whackjob believers
Nobody's immune
You will die

We're all gonna die
Kiss your ass goodbye!

Sarcastic songwriters and guys with tatoos
Drummers and bassits and engineers too
And every last person that sang in this room
They will die

'Cos we're all gonna die
Yeah we're all gonna die
'Cos we're all gonna die
Yeah we're all gonna die

And it's just a reminder of something that's frequently known
