"Dead" as written by and Stephen Fretwell....
You crazy baby bathsheba, I wancha
You're suffocating you need a good shed
I'm tired of living, shebe, so gimme
Dead
Dead

We're apin' rapin' tapin' catharsis
You get torn down and get erected
My blood is working but my, my heart is
Dead
Dead
Dead

Hey
Whaddyah know?
You're lovely
Tanned belly
Is starting to grow

Uriah hit the crapper, the crapper
Uriah hit the crapper, the crapper
Uriah hit the crapper, the crapper
Dead
Dead
Dead
Dead
Dead

    General Commentas far as I can tell, black francis wrote this song from the perspective of king david. i vaguely remember a biblical story in which king david sees bathsheba bathing and has her sent to his palace. meanwhile, he sends bathsheba's husband, uriah, off to the front line of battle, where he dies.
