"Waltzing Past The Grave" as written by and Jay Clifford....
there's a stranger lying in my bed
a slate-eyed asleep assassin in my head
i keep on dying 'til i finally fall dead
everyday has a way through

there's an ether hanging at my door
a cross-eyed crucifier keeping score
i keep on smiling 'til i can't smile no more
everyday fades to blue

and we go waltzing past the grave
and we go waltzing past the grave
and we go waltzing past the grave
for one more day

there's a danger lying at every turn
a steel-eyed star signing 'to whom it may concern'
i catch my breath before the match starts to burn
everyday lights a fuse

there's a false confession under my skin
a doe-eyed disbeliever, a turned down chin
keep on losing 'til it feels like a win
but it's just a point of view

there's a light shining in my eyes
a show off charlatan shelling out lies
i see clearly 'til the flash starts to die
but it's just a clue

there's a cloud rising from the sea
a modern myth maker coming for me
i see the rain fall like snakes from a tree
and i know it's overdue

there's a stranger lying sound asleep
a slung out stone sinking in the deep
i give my dreams away the darkness i keep
but I'm holding on to you

keep on waltzing past the grave
keep on waltzing past the grave
keep on waltzing past the grave
for one more day
