"Stone Dead Forever" as written by Edward Alan Clarke, Ian Kilmister and Philip John Taylor....
And didn't you see me in the glass
And didn't you hear me you never listen past
And didn't I see you gone to seed
And the only reason is that you're too young greed

You're out there on your own
Your face turned to stone
Whatever happened to your life
Stone dead forever

You're in perhaps you'll listen a judge like you
In your sweet life innocence that's nobody's fault
You've never had it quite so good
Because you didn't know that you even could

At times it's been too old
Your judge turned to gold
Whatever happened to your life
Stone dead forever

And it's been a long, long time been a long, long wait
And then you thought you'd beat us at the pearly gates
You better leave your number, oh and we'll call you
You must admit your problem and it's heckling you

The time has come to pay
Turns out you've been the prey
Whatever happened to your life
Stone dead forever

    General CommentLyrics are way off. should be

    You think you see me, in the glass
    You think you hear me, better listen fast
    I think I see you, gone to seed
    Think your reason, is your guilt and greed

    You're out there on your own
    Your face is turned to stone
    What ever happened to your life?
    Stone dead forever

    You're a financial wizard, yeah, a top tycoon
    You're a sweet long lizard, with a silver spoon
    You know you've never had it, quite so good
    And you didn't know, that you even could

    Your time has come to own
    Your touch turned to gold
    What ever happened to your life?
    Stone dead forever

    It's been a long time, it's been a long long wait
    And you caught your fingers, in the pearly gates
    You better leave your number, and we'll call you
    You know your problem, ain't exactly new

    Your time has come today
    Your face has turned to hay
    What ever happened to your life?
    Stone dead forever



    Anyway, I don't really know what it means, I just know that it's freaking sweet. The last minute or so completely rocks.
