out in the backyard yesterday
trimming the hedge while the neighbors kids were in the pool
the power cord got a little close to water edge
and sent 10 000 volts down little billy's spine
he was only nine
better luck next time
woke up one sunday afternoon
the families gone on a hunting trop for caribou
broke out the ladder gonna patch some holes up on the roof
i slipped and fell and landed on the ground
no one was around
when will i be found

i'm sure not glad it happened
but i'm happy as can be
that it look the life from someone else
better than me bought

a home right by the plant
they said she'd never blow again like she did before
perhaps they spoke a bit to close a half passed noon
she blew like hell and then the sky turned red
toxins overhead everybody's dead, everybody's dead

pleasant dreams and thanks for listening
