Look into the yard
All the flowers find it hard to climb
See, the weeds have won
Take the water and the sun
Then it finds me in the clear
Now you can see
The worst of days has got the best of me

[Chorus]
So lay me down to sleep
And pray my soul to keep me
Moving on
When I'm gone

You take me in
With the color of my skin turned gray
Doctor, will you let us know
Should we keep or let him go today
We'll bring him home for surgery
With a tweezer and a match
Kill tick and flea

[Chorus]

When all is said and done
I never will forget you when I'm gone
Carry on

Whisper over me
I can rest in peace of mind
My eyes are wide
But still dark inside this time
I have it all
In front of me
Such a simple world
I could never see
But you gave it all
For just one day
I found a reason to live
And pass away

[Chorus]

When all is said and done
I never will forget you when I'm gone
And you carry on
When I'm gone
And you're moving on

    General CommentIt's about death, I'm pretty sure. I love the sound of the bells. I like the soft, happy sound they make against the sad, morbid lyrics. I really like the imagery Lazlo Bane uses.
