lyrics

His insides twisted like a pretzel
His mouth crackles like a live wire
His ponderous heart is made of granite
All the while his mind's on fire
When the end comes, it's time to dress up
The only letters left to read

RSV and P
Put on a suit and tie
Get the dress and jewelry
Never put the chance to show up out to dry

Lurching and weaving through every moment
From one perspective and only one
Leaving a trail of tears and wreckage
Never stop 'til the raging's done

When the end comes, it's time to dress up
The only letters left to read

RSV and P
Put on a suit and tie
Get the dress and jewelry
Never put the chance to show up out to dry

This is a goodbye
No more returning
Your head's a tempest, your insides churning
Only wreckage, tears and debris
When someone checks out and leaves you an

RSV and P
Put on a suit and tie
Get the dress and jewelry
Never put the chance to show up out to dry
