lyrics

You're a body on the table in front of me.
What's gone I can't breathe back in to you.

You grew old so playfully,
But we all knew what was coming for you.

That's the way it goes.
That's always the way it goes.
And every family knows
That's always the way it's going to go.

Your heart stopped beating seconds ago.
Their hands are still running through your hair.

I'm stuck staring in disbelief
At the body--fur, flesh and bone--left lying there.

That's the way it goes.
That's always the way it goes.
And every family knows
That's always the way it's going to go.

You'll feel her head get heavy, he said.
And then it did...and I felt it.

That's the way it goes.
That's always the way it goes.
And every idiot family knows
That's always the way it's going to go.
