Afterlife

by: Shelley Segal

Lyrics

Follow the guidebook for an afterlife
Which one do I try which one do I try?
I’d like to believe that i’ll never die
But I can’t comply, no I can’t comply

All the self appointed representatives of their own imaginings in the sky.
They want to usher in the messianic age.
They don’t mind if it’s brought on by nuclear rage

They are so sure of their ability to outlive the utility of their bodies
But just remember that was the last thought in the brain of every suicide bomber
in every hijacked plane

Follow the guidebook for an afterlife
Which one do I try which one do I try?
I’d like to believe that i’ll never die
But I cant comply, no I can’t comply

Thousands and thousands are humming that the second comings coming
And environmental responsibility is succumbing
To the suicidal longing for paradise
Can’t we see it’s already before our eyes?!

All that makes us who we are we find, cannot survive without a mind
But you’re so afraid to die you’re willing to sacrifice
Living through it all with the knowledge that you have only ONE LIFE

Follow the guidebook for an afterlife
Which one do I try which one do I try?
I’d like to believe that i’ll never die
But I cant comply, no I can’t comply

From the day that you are born, you are going to die
It’s not a pleasant thought at all but way that I deal with it
Is to treasure each moment with my surroundings and those I love

I spend my days, trying to engage with the world,
To learn as much about everything as I can
Using the body of knowledge which is our shared heritage to further understand
The historical and evolutionary context of man.

To hold revelation in a higher place is to spit in the face of those who chose to dedicate their lives to enrich our own

Follow the guidebook for an afterlife
Which one do I try which one do I try?
I’d like to believe that i’ll never die
But I cant comply, no I can’t comply
