  • The doctor says I'm dying
    I die a little every day
    He's got no prescription
    That could take my death away
    The doctor says, It don't look so good
    It's terminal

    Some folks die in offices
    One day at a time
    They could live a hundred years
    But their soul's already died
    Don't let your spirit die before your body does
    We're terminal
    We're terminal

    We are the living souls
    With terminal hearts, terminal parts
    Flickering like candles
    Fatally flawed, Fatally flawed

    The moment I start cursing
    At the traffic or the phone
    I remind myself that we have all got
    Cancer in our bones
    Don't yell at the dead
    Show a little respect
    It's terminal

    "Earth to earth, ashes to ashes, dust to dust
    For our days here are like grass
    We flourish like a flower of the field
    The wind blows and it is gone
    And its place remembers it no more
    Naked we came from our mother's womb
    And naked we will depart
    For we bring nothing into the world
    And we cant take nothing away"

    We're fatally flawed in the image of God. Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
