I wonder if we'll smile in our coffins while
Loved ones mourn the day, the absence of our face,
Living, laughing, eyes awake
Is this too much for them to take?

Too young for one's conclusion, the lifestyle won
Such values you taught your son

One day we all will die, clichéd fact of life

Too young for one's delusion the lifestyle cost
Venereal Mother embrace the loss
