I rolled my eyes, burst into tears
And how appropriate can you get?
The details emerged, the anger surged
I got to say I wish we never met
Hey, a party cruise on the River Styx
And I suppose it’s just as well
Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh, whoa-oh, it’s so you
A Concorde ride, right to the Pearly Gates
Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh, whoa-oh, it’s so you
You mom was mad at all your friends
And vice-versa. It wasn’t cool.
I couldn’t read your eulogy
I told your dad we kind of had an office pool
Hey, a party cruise on the River Styx
And I suppose it’s the way to go
Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh, whoa-oh, it’s so you
A Concorde ride, right to the Pearly Gates
Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh, whoa-oh, it’s so you
We threw you a big Irish wake
I know that you’re Bolivian, but
You always were the biggest fake
We chose the path of least resistance
And most fun…and most fun…and most fun
Let the record show that I will fight your legend at every turn
All the stories that were never true and the rep that you didn’t earn
I will do everything in my power to make sure that this little stunt of yours
Gets you absolutely nowhere
But I guess I’m really talking to myself here

    General CommentThis song is about a suicide I heard, with a very tongue-in-cheek message to the departed. He shows lots of anger and regret:
    "I will do everything in my power to make sure that this little stunt of yours
    Gets you absolutely nowhere
    But I guess I’m really talking to myself here"
    That line pretty much sums up the song, his overall anger, and though he's not trying to let it show it, regret.

    General CommentI love this song for being a light-hearted eulogy. It's so cliche to have a ballad in rememberence of someone who died. "Party cruise on the River Styx" and the general tone of the song mean that the dead person probably wasn't well-liked.
