My Funeral

How would you react if you found out I was dead
Would you shed a tear for me
Think good memories of me
Or would you sweep everything under the rug and move on with your life like I meant nothing
As I lay in the casket would you come up just to have one last look at me
To whisper to me like I was listening for you to give me one last bit of love or hate.

Can't explain why I'm surrounded by candle light
You should all be crying, sharing memories of me
Would any of you really miss this empty shell of me
Would any of you really miss this empty shell of me

The shell finally hit E for empty
As it was drained of it's last bit of life force
It now lays before you
Some say it didn't try hard
Others say you have no idea how hard it tried
But it failed, it seemed that failure was the only option
Few gave him a chance, those who did had low expectations

Can't explain why I'm surrounded by candle light
You should all be crying, sharing memories of me
Would any of you really miss this empty shell of me
Would any of you really miss this empty shell of me

Life and death:

An old black preacher told me" "When you are alive, they lie about you.  When you are dead, they lie for you."  ---   Stephen

Well hopefully they will lie

Well hopefully they will lie enough to make me look better than I ever was.
