Larry & His Flask – Dearly Departed Lyrics

(Verse)
Pour me one more shot, bartender please
Another for another generation on its knees
And one more for all my friends pushing daisies
Long before their time
The writing’s on the wall, here to behold
It’s not some hidden message and there’s no secret to be told
They won’t be comin’ up from that there rabbit hole
To kick that gong aloud
(Chorus)
‘Cause when your soul is flying high in the bright white China sky
But your body’s down in the black-tar ground, there’s no tears in my eye
And it may sound down and low, but I say I told you so
That you never give chase in a dragon’s race
My friend, just please don’t go, please don’t go
(Verse)
We’ve seen it all so many times before
A bright young kid walks straight through the grim reaper’s open door
With a dose big enough to kill a f*cking horse
And the heart stops on a dime
(Chorus)
Oh, when your soul is flying high in the bright white China sky
But your body’s down in the black-tar ground, there’s no tears in my eyes
And it may sound down and low, but I say I told you so
That you never give chase in a dragon’s race
My friends, just please don’t go, please dont go
(Bridge)
And in your wake, dearly departed
Broken bottles, battered and bloody, broken-hearted
Do you feel better now? Just look at what you started
Flowers at your feet, a pattern to repeat
