When I leave this earth I'm not sure where I'll go
Will goodbye feel like a way to say hello?
Would you want a list of those who would be sad?
Will they say it was "a shame" or "that's too bad"?
How much will it hurt to leave the ones you love?

On long days and fast years
A song burns in my ears
That I never quite hear
On long days and fast years

Give me strength when I am hurting
Send your angels from the dirt
Send Jack and Jean and Ki to me, ASAP
Ain't nobody quitting here, but I know that I am weak and I get scared still at the doctors
Who will prepare delivery from the church of non-belief?
Call it artistic or agnostic, altruistic, now I lost it
This uncertainty just gets to me

On long days and fast years
A song burns in my ears
That I never quite hear
On long days and fast years

All the things we thought we were supposed to be
Promises I made to you and you to me, the day will come
When the ones I love have gone from here
Make me electrons, make me dirt and light,
The angels sleep with you tonight, they'll be no more

Long days and fast years
A song burns in my ears
That I never quite hear
On long days and fast years

On long days and fast years
A song burns in my ears
That I never quite hear
On long days and fast years
