lyrics

TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE (SEVERED) HEAD 
  
The greatest tales never start at the beginning  
We'll you're in luck – This kicks off at my end  
I'm staring at my arms, my legs, my torso  
Now separated and wrapped in plastic instead  
  
(I could cry)  
But there's a film that covers my eyes  
'Cause I'm dead  
  
Motionless and floating in the bathtub  
The stench in here is horrific as you'd expect  
The sun comes up, goes down – I'm going nowhere  
I'd laugh but I can't get the air in through my neckhole  
  
(I digress)  
What's gonna happen next?  
I spot a figure holding a suitcase....  
  
Yeah....I must be going on a holiday!  
For my pieces and I....It's not over yet  
  
The zip undoes and I'm stuffed inside my carriage  
I'd clap with excitement but my hands are someplace else  
  
(I don't care)  
Now I'm talking to my severed limbs  
And for a moment, I forget  
I'm 5 pieces of meat  
I would smile but the muscles and mind can't connect 
Then everything goes dark  
  
Yeah – I'm on a road trip in my comfortable case  
To where I guess will be my final resting place  
  
Now it's a waiting game  
I imagine where my remains will remain  
  
Will I end up in a field somewhere?  
Or in a barrel of Acid I guess  
The suspense is killing...oh wait, too late 
  
I hear the waves – My god I love the ocean  
  
So Yeah!....I'm heading to my liquid grave  
Now I now what the weights were for it's all making sense  
  
And as I'm sinking down  
I wonder if I'll ever be found  
or even if I'll be missed by anyone  
  
If mother nature and physics choose to expose me  
I hope some kid finds my face peering up from the sand.....
