lyrics

Guess I have to wait no more
there are deaths that aint worth dying
I guess I have to wait no more

If youre turning away it still happens though
It dont matter much if youre rich or so
If you came along or have been here all the time
You could be next to follow just as soon as you line up
There are deaths that aint worth dying

Now hold on let me tell for a sec
This is how it works
One giant queue and they are all moving in reverse
See, youre blind
And if you hear someone talk behind
you know of at least one more and that youre not next in line
Thats why you hear people sighing
Thats why you hear all this sighing

So let me just add some more
There would be rumours all the time about how many are behind a thousand or only nine? And that could nobody know cause some keep their voices low still everybody made a guess and if you wanna trade places youll have to pay more or less It just depends on a guess But why would somebody in the back agree? Cause if its a day or a year seems to make a difference and for money some take a chance it makes a whole lotta sense They aint greedy you have to pay the rent Business is even harder if you cant look each other in the eye probably the reason why
some people leave it at sighing

Maybe you are you are still wondering why and how that has something to do with life
Maybe even if youll ever be that bright

People standing in line is a metaphor
you wouldnt believe what you can use it for
Opportunism, life in general, everything
just about every time you feel like lecturing
Though theres truth to it I cant deny
There are really deaths that aint worth dying
and that some people love to sigh
is probably also right
