[Verse]
     G 
The first guy I knew who died I can't remember his name 
     C
the tenth grade started he just never came again
G
  all his friends sat around and cried
      D                  
for a day or two 

         G
You can say what you want about immortal soul 
      C
when that guy died it left a hole 
       G
it was my first clue 
      D                         G
that when they're gone they're gone 

[Chorus]
       C
Maybe Jesus beat that rap we're not sure 
       G     
maybe you can live forever if your heart is pure 
          D                                   G
or maybe you'll come back some day as a king prawn 

       C                                G
Maybe angels come and take you away to heaven or the other way 
    D                                                         G
but from down here it appears that when they're gone they're gone 

[Verse]
G
Me and Stevie Gibson used to walk home from school 
C
he used to have this little turn around rule 
       G
if you turn around the one way gotta turn around the other way or
     D
it's bad luck 

   G
He went out rafting on the river 
                 C
the river went around and the raft went around 
                 G                     D
and his luck got all wound up and he drowned
            G
and he was gone 

[Chorus]
       C
Maybe Jesus beat that rap we're not sure 
       G     
maybe you can live forever if your heart is pure 
          D                                   G
or maybe you'll come back some day as a king prawn 

      C                                 G
Maybe angels come and take you away to heaven or the other way 
    D                                                         G
but from down here it appears that when they're gone they're gone 

[Verse]

 G
Two weeks after Dieter died you could call him on the phone 
C
and he would tell you that he's not home
        G
and it gave you an eerie feeling even though you knew
               D
it was just an answering machine 

        G
'Cause somewhere deep inside you know 
       C
that they don't come back when they go 
     G                D
and he had gone and when they're gone 
         G
they're gone 

[Chorus]
       C
Maybe Jesus beat that rap we're not sure 
       G     
maybe you can live forever if your heart is pure 
           D                                  G
or maybe you'll come back some day as a king prawn 

       C                                G
Maybe angels come and take you away to heaven or the other way 
    D                                                         G
but from down here it appears that when they're gone they're gone 

[Verse]
G
My mother died in intensive care 
         C
we were sitting around singing on folding chairs 
     G
when I got the feeling
                      D
somebody wasn't there 

        G
Well I counted noses but it came out right
     C
the doctors said she died that night 
       G                    D
but I felt that hole and I knew that
         G
she was gone 

[Chorus]
       C
Maybe Jesus beat that rap we're not sure 
       G     
maybe you can live forever if your heart is pure 
           D                                  G
or maybe you'll come back some day as a king prawn 

      C                                 G
Maybe angels come and take you away to heaven or the other way 
     D                                                        G
but from down here it appears that when they're gone they're gone 

[Verse]
   G
I looked up death in the dictionary one day 
         C
just to see what the dictionary had to say 
              G
it's the complete and irreversible cessation of
      D
life functions 

          G
Which is not very poetic but it's precise and clean 
    C
and if you analyze it what that means is
G                 D
when they're gone
         G
they're gone 

[Chorus]
       C
Maybe Jesus beat that rap we're not sure 
       G     
maybe you can live forever if your heart is pure 
           D                                  G
or maybe you'll come back some day as a king prawn 

       C                                G
Maybe angels come and take you away to heaven or the other way 
    D                                                         G
but from down here it appears that when they're gone they're gone
