Maybe I should entertain
The very fact that I'm insane.
I wasn't fooling when I said,
"All the people I like are those that are dead."
I've been around this town and I've seen what God has done
I've been around and it's no fun
I've been a two-timer/tearaway God has told me so
But I don't believe in Him you know
Don't make me a martyr for our causes
'Cause I don't believe a word that you said
All the people I like are those are dead
Maybe I shoud take a gun,
And put it to the head of everyone
All the people I like are in the ground
It's better to be lost than to be found
I should listen hard to the voices from within
They are telling me that I'll never win
I should save myself I shoud save myself from sin
But I wouldn't know where to begin
You are trying to tell me what you believe in
But I ain't got a clue what you are talking about
It's better to be a man than to be a mouse
All the people I like are those that are dead
All the people I like are those that are dead
All the people I like are those that are dead
All the people I like are those that are dead
I've been around this town and I've seen what God has done
I've been around and it's no fun
I've been a two-timer/tearaway God has told me so
But I don't believe in Him you know
Don't make me a martyr for our causes
'Cause I don't believe a word that you said
All the people I like are those that are
All the people I like are those that are
All the people I like are those that are dead.

    General CommentGreat great song.

    About an old man losing faith in god, growing cynical about the world around him.

    I like the comment repeatedly made that this is the song Morrissey wishes he could have written, because it would have made a perfect Smiths song.
