    Lyrics

    They crucify you when you get it wrong
    When things are fine they put you ahead
    They laugh at you with your trousers down
    They pick the stones and aim them at your head

    When you're alive they won't care what you said
    What you deserve and all the blood you bled

    It doesn't matter what you try to hide
    The sun comes out and then the truth is read
    Your fans will love you when you're alive
    But the wreaths are laid by the rest instead

    When you're alive they won't care what you said
    What you deserve and all the blood you bled

    'Cos everybody loves you when you're dead
    Kneel and pray by the side of your bed
    And then everybody loves you when you're dead
    Kneel and pray just like your momma said

    When you're alive they won't care what you said
    What you deserve and all the blood you bled
    You'll turn in your grave at what's gonna be said
    You'll finally be appreciated
    'Cos everybody loves you when you're dead
    Everybody loves you when you're dead
