There will come a day when our cells won't regenerate
and everyone you know will rot away, rot away
Your friends and enemies and all your family
we will all be buried in the ground, in the ground
So make the most of it.
Life's too short to fuck with.

Once an hour a day I get very sad
Once an hour a day I get depressed
When that hour is over I start to feel okay
because I'm reminded I'll rot away, rot away.

I don't have much time to hang out here and cry
and though that may feel nice I can't do that everyday
I've had a lot of friends and they've done a lot of drugs
and those drugs made my friends rot away, rot away

They say that Jesus saves but Jesus doesn't care
because he is in a grave, in a grave
Let's be our own God, take care of ourselves and the ones that we love

    General CommentNot on your own, certainly, but not everyone needs a god to do so. Some people might, but this song doesn't seem to be about them.

    General CommentI don't think you have to do it on your own, but the overall gist I get is that you don't need religion to tell you what the right and wrong actions are. Just take care of those you care about. Simple.

    Song MeaningThe song meaning is pretty obvious xD Basically, Jesus won't save us, because he's dead, we have to save and take care of ourselves. We need to stop relying so heavily on a God to save us.

    General CommentThis is the song that I heard that made me really fall in love with Andrew Jackson Jihad. Nothing like sheer honesty :)

    General CommentI have to disagree with this song. I'd like to take care of myself and the ones I love, but who can really do that effectively on their own?
