Trade your demise for mine
A tissue for a cigarette
I'll miss you when you're gone
I'll mourn you still
I'll kill you yet

My eyes are dry
My eyes are dry
But on the inside, I'm all wet

I'm de de decomposing
I'm de de decomposing
Below my clothes
I'm starting to decompose

I blow my brains out
I blow my brains out
Through my nose

Grandma sleeps on a bed of ice
Why does Grandma sleep with open eyes?
No one knows we've been crying
We're living in the ocean's brine

Our world's all wet
Our world's all wet
But on the inside, something's dried

I'm de de decomposing
I'm de de decomposing
Below my clothes
I'm starting to decompose

I blow my brains out
I blow my brains out
Through my nose

I picked a bad day for the beach
Crowds of scarcely clad sides of meat
In spite of sunburn, I had a head cold
I blew my brains out through my nose

I blow my brains out
Through my nose
Oh, oh

I'm de de decomposing
I'm de de decomposing
Below my clothes
I'm starting to decompose

I blow my brains out
I blow my brains out
Through my nose
Oh, oh

I blow my brains out
I blow my brains out
(Blow my brains)
I blow my brains out
(Blow my brains)
Through my nose
Oh, oh

    General CommentThis song is about kicking (not doing) cocaine and amphetamines. Ice is a common term for meth, and blow is a common phrase for cocaine. Brine usually pertains to somebody who is under the influence of cocaine.

    General Commentthis is a really good song
    and the correct lyrics are.


    Trade your demise for mine
    A tissue for a cigarette
    I'll miss you when you're gone
    I'll mourn you still
    I'll kill you yet

    My eyes are dry
    My eyes are dry
    But on the inside, I'm all wet

    I'm de de decomposing
    I'm de de decomposing
    Below my clothes
    I'm starting to decomposing

    I blow my brains out
    I blow my brains out
    Through my nose

    Grandma sleeps on a bed of ice
    Why does Grandma sleep with open eyes?
    No one knows we've been crying
    We're living in the ocean's brine

    Our world's all wet
    Our world's all wet
    But on the inside, something's dried

    I'm de de decomposing
    I'm de de decomposing
    Below my clothes
    I'm starting to decomposing

    I blow my brains out
    I blow my brains out
    Through my nose

    I picked a bad day for the beach
    Crowds of scarcely clad sides of meat
    In spite of sunburn, I had a head cold
    I blew my brains out through my nose

    I blow my brains out
    Through my nose
    Oh, oh

    I'm de de decomposing
    I'm de de decomposing
    Below my clothes
    I'm starting to decomposing

    I blow my brains out
    I blow my brains out
    Through my nose
    Oh, oh

    I blow my brains out
    I blow my brains out
    (Blow my brains)
    I blow my brains out
    (Blow my brains)
    Through my nose
    Oh, oh

    General Commentthis song is about having a cold on the beach.
    mark hoppus says it in an AP interview about decomposer. he asked shawn what it was about, and he said "a cold on the beach". it's genius, haha.

    General CommentIt really is about having a cold on the beach. Sampintoknowsitall is serious.
    Hence the, "In spite of sunburn, I had a head cold
    I blew my brains out through my nose"

    General CommentThat makes sense, since the first line
    "Trade your demise for mine
    A tissue for a cigarette" is saying, "I have a cold, and you smoke, so I'll trade my tissue for your cigarette."
