  • If I see the morning hours
    I'll have one more yesterday
    Take life from tomorrow
    'Cause I've burned out my today

    If I get up to the top I know
    I'll just go back downhill
    Gotta' terminal future
    And it's time to write my will

    Down another glass of courage
    And a shot of Thorazine

    [Chorus]
    We're not ready to see you yet
    99 ways to die
    We're not ready to see you yet

    Gotta' short between the earphones
    Wringing my hands in dismay
    A more efficient maniac
    With two feet in the grave

    Ain't got no last words to say
    Yellow streak right up my spine
    The gun in my mouth was real
    And the taste blew my mind

    In a black tie and straight jacket
    Man I'm gonna try again

    [Chorus]

    Demitasse of arsenic
    Try on this tie
    Never mind the tree

    There is only death and danger
    In the sockets of my eyes
    A playground of illusion
    No one plays they only die

    There's a prison in my mind
    And the bars are gonna break
    I'm as mad as a hatter
    And strung out just the same

    Taunting rigor mortis
    I feel it draw me in
