  • Terminal, what disease
    Told me too late
    What's this cough and wheeze
    Fatal, you're shittin' me
    A second opinion
    Is what I need
    Laughin' in a windstorm
    Blowin' all the cornstalks down
    Cryin' in a funeral home
    Forward my mail, six feet underground

    Elimination

    Contagious, say why not
    Not just me
    Waitin' to rot
    Painful, yeah I know
    When I had to go
    I'm yankin' on my plug
    And I can't seem to get it loose
    Pullin' all the stops
    Your ideals change. when you got
    Nothing to loose.

    Elimination
    Eliminate the right
    Eliminate the wrong
    Eliminate the weak
    Eliminate the strong
    Eliminate your feelings
    Eliminate too late
    Eliminate the hope
    Eliminate, eliminate

    If I had just one more day
    I'd turn it all around
    I'd make a play of good, clean livin'
    And dig me out of the ground
    And if I had just one more day
    I'd say it to your face
    Pull the plug on everyone
    Eliminate this race.
    We want to cure
    And we want it now.
    Reissue hope
    We don't eare how
    You're makin' a mess
    Diseasin' a nation
    Runaway train to elimination

    Hopeless there's no doubt
    Set on a slow burn
    From the inside out
    Carefully say what for
    Last one out
    Closes the coffin door
    Spendin' all you saved
    And wishin' for a little more
    If I'm lookin' at the ceilin'
    Then I must be layin' on the floor.

    Terminal, what disease
    Told me too late
    What's this cough and wheeze
    Fatal... you're shittin' me
    A second opinion
    There's gotta be
    Laughin' at the epidemic
    Something is going around
    Crying at the epidemic
    Pullin' on nails, six feet underground. Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
