No sense in fighting it,
There's nothing can be done,
Born from the dust and to the dust,
We will become,
Hunter or hunted,
To the worms we're all the same,
All the same

Soldiers and farmers,
Beggars and crowns,
We're all in the same boat and it's slowly
Going down,
My glass may be half empty,
But there's always room for something more,
Something more,

Waits said that heaven wasn't taking any more,
And hell was spilling,
Out onto the floor,
I guess we're stuck here,
Until the day the Reaper calls your name,
Calls your name,

Pleasures of the flesh,
And pleasures of the soul,
Mean next to nothing,
When you're six feet in a hole,
Don't worry,
We'll all be joining you soon,
Joining you soon,
