"Not Dying Today" as written by and Tori Ellen Amos.
You, bastard fan
You always speak badly about me
Hoping in a new Pele
Receiving just new Ireland
You want the worst for me 'cause I know you say
She makes good songs just when she's in pain
Shame on you baby!
You hope in my misfortunes
And you think of what pain can makes me turn back to write good songs
Sorry for the disappointment but in the family we are all good

My father's well
He's not dying today
My mother's well
She's not dying today
My face is OK, so they say to me
But don't worry 'cause it will not die today
Maybe tomorrow somewhere

Hi ears with feet
Or I could say ears with six feet under
You hope the beekeeper comes to take someone
Shame on you
I can do good songs if I'm happy too.such as goodbye pieces
OK it's not a good example

Mary Magdalene's alive and
Not dying today
Matt and john are OK
They're not dying today
Mac Aladdin is good too, I know you're sad about
But he's not dying today
Beenie lost her sunset but not dying today
My career is on a thread but not dying today
My face is OK, so they say to me
But don't worry 'cause it will not die today

    General CommentYay, another Neil reference! Don't think there's been one since Scarlet's Walk...?

    General CommentIt's so optimistic! It's about her life as an artist not being over yet, and having a blast with the guys from the band while on tour. i think maybe Neil is advising against all that and telling her that she has to settle down (?)

    General CommentYeah, Gaiman strikes back ;D As you say, it is a quite optimistic song. Kinda strange twist after the previous ones on the album.
