You’re scared of me, most seem to be
Truth told you don’t know I’m already gone
See what they bring, is versions of “me”
That said, I don’t choose, all I do is move

now you know that I’m incapable
of choosing who to visit, how to do it, even when I can go
how to tell you, well, let me see
that I’m just like you, I bend the knee

a certainty, taxes and me,
ginned up, try to cope, but you ought to know
that I will get paid, don’t hate my wage
better yet, settle in, come and make a friend

now you know that I’m incapable
of choosing who to visit, how to do it, even when I can go
how to tell you, well, let me see
that I’m just like you, I bend the knee

I’m just like you
I bend the knee

    Song MeaningThis song, like the following two parts is about a personified Death. Here we have Death himself visiting a "victim". He laments that he has no say in where he is sent, he simply follows orders and goes. The main thing to take away from his words are the inevitability and finality of his presence because they come into play during the next two parts. He may be bound in his activity but he fully understands the power that follows him. Which is why he tells those he visits to "settle in". They have no way of avoiding what is to come so he tries to ease their transition.
