Kiss this corpse lightly
Open-casket funeral saddened and grim
Faint bulbs burn less brightly
Ironic to say you can't always win

Look out over the sea of sin and decay
Faking their tears, acting their part in this play
Light up the stage with a performance so true
They go home smiling, it's okay to feel blue

I'm sure they would hurt to lose someone like this
Your dear caught in the headlights through that sad Sunday mist
Being the only person I'm sure that will miss
Your earnest and true, not to insist

So cry, weep, gasp and scream
You can't change the past, as easy as it would seem
So quote their sighs and sew their lips
I'm sure they couldn't care, couldn't care less

About you or him or what happened here
The first time a funeral has been a party this year
