Everybody Loves You When You're Dead

from by Wild Animals



I stumbled out of bed this morning
As I went to light up my first smoke
Another phoney obituary
Another loaded star just gone away

You know I wake up kind of grumpy
But the social media blocked my phone
The same old posts with empty RIPs
The same old live fast and die young

We all have our heroes
someone who inspired us
In life they were zeros
 or they sold platinum

You can fall on indifference, 
they’ll put you to bed
but don’t worry, it’s alright, 
they’ll all love you when you’re dead

Today at breakfast the same story,
this one really shook me to the core
They were never popular on MTV
but we still cover my favorite song


from The Hoax, released April 27, 2018
