Black shoes, white shirt for a funeral
And we carried him down
Our friend
Is not around

And it’s often when you fall asleep
It’s a face in a dream it’s an alkaline beat
And everyone loses sometimes
But not everyone tries again

No one tells you
Things don’t go right much
There’ll be days when you’ve seen enough
And you want it to end

So I will mourn you though I won’t agree
With why you did it and it won’t beat me
No matter how bad the damage you will see
I’ll strive valiantly.

Black shoes, black shirt at a party
His bad luck weighs him down
"We all live troubled lives
We all want something more"

So I say "It's getting better" but he don't see no Marengo
Well you be the General
And I'll be Napoleon

No one tells you
Things don’t go right much
There’ll be days when you’ve seen enough
And you want it to end

So I will mourn you though I won’t agree
With why you did it and it won’t beat me
No matter how bad the damage you will see
I’ll strive valiantly.

My Marengo

So I will mourn you though I won’t agree
With why you did it and it won’t beat me
Though it’s hopeless and tragic
And though I’m ceaselessly panicked
No matter how bad the damage you will see
I’ll strive valiantly.
