My Funeral

MY FUNERAL - Written by Carroll Bryant


In a world gone crazy
One man stands alone
Waging war against his technology
Planning the leave that will take him home

In a world gone mad
One man versus society 
Planting the seeds of your dirty little secrets
Waging war against the gods of eternity

All we can do is live and die
To both of them to wonder why
There is no end and nowhere to go
Talk to you later at my funeral

In a world gone crazy 
One man goes insane
Taking his chances once way too often
Paying a debt that doesn't pain for his pain

In a world gone mad
One man versus the casualties 
Drinking the wine with bittersweet difference
Waging a war against seraphic serenity 

All we can prove is live and die
To what that means will make you cry
There is no end and nowhere to go
To seek the truth
Here is my funeral 

I don't have to be pathetic to all that I see
I don't choose to be theistic
I just don't believe 
I don't try to be so different just to be the same
I don't need an obituary just so that I can have a name

In a world gone crazy 
One man becomes a crime
Breathing in all of your oxygen 
Changing the thoughts of your perverted mind

In a world gone mad
One man versus insanity
Counting his blessings with a gun on your children
Waging a war against the pope and the presidency 

All we can do is live and die
To what we are and all we try
To face the end with nowhere to go
In search of the future here at my funeral

All we can do is live and die
To both of them to wonder why
There is no end and nowhere to go
Talk to you later at my funeral
