    Lyrics

    On the day that Daniel Cowman stopped existing
    the world should have ended right then and there
    at precisely four-fifteen when he stopped existing
    the world should have ended
    How could it go on?
    How could it go on?
    How could it go on?

    Oh and I don't exist
    I don't exist [repeats],

    So now that we've got that straight
    doesn't mean that I can fly
    doesn't mean I that I can go do whatever I want.
    Now that we've got that clear
    and you know that I'm not here
    doesn't mean that I can go do whatever I please.

    The premature ejaculation of his death
    (something) hit Daniel in the face like a big round spitball hwk-pfffff.
    And everything got hazy in the courtroom and then he stood up
    and then he sat back down another two times in the row.
    And everything got real slow like a gunshot in the movies
    and he remembered heroin boy walking in through the door
    bouncing off the walls and the floor
    taking off his belt taking off his pants
    filling up the bathtub
    getting ready to go in for a swim.
    Singing I don't exist
    I don't exist [repeats],

    and now that we've got that straight,
    doesn't mean that I can fly
    doesn't mean that I can go do whatever I want.
    Now that we've got that clear
    and you know that I'm not here
    doesn't mean that I can go do whatever I please.
    and you start remembering and remembering and remembering
    and remembering,

    The heroin boy, he walked through the door,
    and he was screaming
    and I was like 'why's you screaming like it's the end of the world?'
    and he was like 'well it is.'
    and I was sitting in the corner with my pants down
    and I was sure that someone next door was blowing up balloons
    and it was red and orange.

    And there was that swell lady at the bar just tryin to buy gin
    and there was this other lady at the bar and she was tryin to sell gin
    It worked out good for the boths of them.

    And heroin boy started taking off his belt,
    started taking off his pants,
    started taking off his shoes
    started filling up the bathtub
    getting ready to go in for a swim
    I says "No-o.
    You're goin to drown.
    he says 'No,
    I can't drown.
    Simply because,

    shhhhhhh.

    A man destined to hang
    Can never drown,
    a man destined to hang
    can never drown,
    a man destined to hang
    can never ever drown.

    A man destined to drown
    can never burn,
    a man destined to drown
    can never burn,
    a man destined to drown
    can never ever burn.

    A man destined to fry
    can never ever ever
    a man destined to fry
    can never ever ever
    a man destined to fry
    can never ever ever die,
    in any other way but frying,
    lucky that I'm dying
    by hanging and not drowning.

    So now that we've got that straight
    can't I just be left alone?
    I want to take a fuckin' bath.
