the phone line is broken
the tapes are all erased
someone’s at the door
you know his wares have all been laced
you better hope you die before me

if you take it as a compliment
you’re out of your tree
the horses are all ready
and they know as well as me
that you better hope you die before me

everybody knows you climb a ladder so well
impressive demonstrations of your speech and your spell
but you better hope you die before me

so dress me up in wires
I’ll plug into the feed
of blasted out basement shows
bursting at the seams
you better hope you die before me

the house is infested with
with pests of every kind
but at least they have the courtesy
to stay out of my mind
you’re broken, alone, down, and undreamed

you can bang on every wind chime
or light a torch for me
or magnify your tiny soul
with a microscope from me
you better hope you die before me
