You Can't Kill Me

You can't kill me
I'm already dead
And you can't tell me
Cause it's all been said

The programme was over
Before we got started
And no one's the wiser
Cuz then, we done parted

And when it was ended
with all said and done
Something was missing,
along with the fun.

It's getting too deep,
and it's too hard to cope
When your living on lies,
and your choking on Hope.

It all seemed so easy,
When you seen it before
When you're simple to please,
and there's always more

No justifications.
No considerations,
are on the menu
for this generation

for it's all gone,
and there's nothin' left.
There's too little to share,
and not enough bread

The talking's all done.
there's nothin' to say.
The walking's begun,
....It's a different day.

There's nowhere to go.
There's nowhere to hide.
There's nothing to show,
or enough to divide

The party's all over,
but no one's gone home.
There's too many Romans,
and not enough Rome.

The slaves are eating
The whole lion's share
The lion is hungry, and
there's only fresh air.

but You can't kill me.
I'm already dead.
You can't tell me.
.........It's all been said
