We're All Gonna Die

lyrics

Minding my own business—
Knock at the door—who is it?
Be right there, one minute
Gotta get up and go get it
Got white hair, eyes all crazy
Now most mad men don’t phase me
But these guys, I’ll admit it
Got me scared—we’re finished.

The scientists proved it: we’re all gonna die
They got charts & equations, the how when & why
You did not invite them, and neither did I
But they’re here—drink up, we’re all gonna die

I go do my laundry
Those docs are right behind me
Get lost in some party
Those creeps will always find me
Who are they? What is this?
I mind my own damn business
Always there to remind me
All about their findings

The scientists...

I don’t wanna go the way they say
If I gotta go, let it be my way

The scientists...

Mieka Pauley possesses a voice that flows like good whiskey and a frankness that makes Alanis Morissette look shy.
