  • For those about to die we salute you
    For those of about to cry we love you
    For those of us who live in fear
    Of Happy Christmas and New Year
    I raise a toast to you

    And if it hurts to be so blind
    Why don't you try being kind

    They've decided to become
    A little more proactive
    Creep upon you while you sleep
    And make you less attractive

    Born without a spine
    Why don't you try being kind

    For those out drinking their mother's wake
    You'll find a way to soldier on
    For those whose love evaporates
    I pray you find where you belong

    Oh the words I have repressed
    Are coming out today I guess
    It's justice not respect I'm after
    And that just leaves contempt
    For you all

    I am just a simple man
    With simple expectations
    With deep regrets they're seldom met
    God speed my generation

    And with Crowley on my mind
    I should try being kind

    For those about to die we salute you
    For those of about to cry we love you
    For those about to die we salute you
    For those of about to cry we love you
