​Dead

This song is by They Might Be Giants and appears on the album Flood (1990).

This song has been covered by Steve Burns under the title "Dead".
I returned a bag of groceries accidentally taken off the shelf before the expiration date,
I came back as a bag of groceries accidentally taken off the shelf before the date stamped on myself.
Did a large procession wave their torches as my head fell in the basket, and was everybody dancing on the casket?
Now it's over, I'm dead and I haven't done anything that I want, or I'm still alive and there's nothing I want to do.

I will never say the word 'procrastinate' again; I'll never see myself in the mirror with my eyes closed.
I didn't apologize for when I was eight and I made my younger brother have to be my personal slave.
Did a large procession wave their torches as my head fell in the basket, and was everybody dancing on the casket?
Now it's over, I'm dead and I haven't done anything that I want, or I'm still alive and there's nothing I want to do.

So I won't sit at home anymore and you won't see my head in the window, and I won't be around ever anymore,
And I'll be up there on the wall at the store.
