Original video
Priests and fools say
We are but animate clay
But rude vessels
Housing immortal souls

But the dead only quickly decay
They don't go around being born and reborn
And rising and falling like soufflé
The dead only quickly decay

It would be swell
To see some folks burn in hell
But when they go
It's just as pleasant to know

That the dead only quickly decay
They don't go around being born and reborn
And rising and falling like soufflé
The dead only quickly decay

Written by:

Stephin Merritt
