(When You Die) You Get Anything You Want

about

recorded summer 2019

lyrics

It takes lots of work to keep you high
You buy yourself a new vinyl figure
Each time you're unsatisfied

You don't have enough for when you’re sad.
They never soothe you as you suffer

But when you die you get anything you want
Anything you dream up
Sing all night with a crowded table
Harmonies pour out from a cradle
Those you've loved on a screaming river
Made of light

When you feel the itch
Creep in at lunch
Spend your bucks on a pinch
Then fill your gut with the punch

Drain red cups like an undergrad
They won't replace those old nights with your brothers

But when you die you get anything you want
Anything you dream up
Sing all night with a crowded table
Harmonies pour out from a cradle
Those you've loved on a screaming river
Made of light
