FLOWERS IN THE GRAVEYARD
 
Flowers in the graveyard 
Cold in the night 
Livin' through a coke straw 
Your life was wrong 
Your death was right 
Laughing mourners 
Cried for you 
But now they're high 

And I tried to make you see 
But you knew so much more than me 
Dreaming dreams of immortality 
But you know nothing comes for free 
And I tried to let you know 
But the powder had your soul 
Don't count me as your mourner 
I'll just let the heart grow cold 

Flowers in the graveyard 
Gone with the light 
Memories of you girl 
Out of mind 
And out of sight 
Better off without you 
Dragged me down 
Into your plight 

And I tried to make you see 
But you knew so much more than me 
Dreaming dreams of immortality 
But you knew nothing comes for free 
And I tried to make you know 
But the powder had your soul 
So don't count me as a mourner 
I'll just let the heart grow cold
