lyrics

Pretty Song for the Dead – (Formerly Glen Smashed In Buffalo)


As time grinds on this hectic pace… it seizes motivation,
Cramps the brain, weathers face… ages with frustration
Down to the wire,
Time is dyer,
With no time to hit pause —
To taste the fruits of memory,
Take a second for applause.


When I die
play a pretty song for me
One that’s gonna makes your eyes want to bleed
With misery,
pain
and heart-breaking sorrow
To remind you
with me
there’s no tomorrow


When my stories said a done — nothing left upon the page,
All soaked up or sponged dry – release me from this cage.
Lifetime ago,
Only this to show
I was on a mission
To smash this heartfelt legacy
And ruin with precision.


If you ever needed nothing —
Then boy I’m here for you
But most of you still want something -
A slice of skin or two
Worst part is you’ll watch me die
Boasting ownership for all to see
Spare the tears and the lie
Just play a pretty song for me.
