The Death of John Smith Lyrics

Artist: NOFX
Album: The Longest Line

I've got respect from the community

I've got my bridge game to look forward to

I've got this chance, a golden opportunity

As long as I keep doing what I'm supposed to

You see my wife and kids, they depend on me

To provide them with nothing but the best

I feel it's my duty, my obligation

to live up to the standards society suggusts

So I'll keep on working for their benefit

And I'll keep on drinking

I'll keep on believing in my life

Another year of slaving and smiling, buying and trading

Living the life of a wealthy man

But somehow I don't feel so rich inside

But that doesn't make sense

I just had a two week vacation

As soon as I get this operation

taken care of, I'll start enjoying

the good things in life

So I'll keep on working for the benefits

And I'll keep on drinking

I'll keep believing in my life

When the pity spins your mind,

Darkness fills your heart,

And I won't be around

When you're feeling all alone

Then you'll know it's time,

To go into the ground

When the pity spins your mind,

Darkness fills your heart,

And I won't be around

I've got my family, friends, and associates

To stand by me as the threshold comes near

Within their faces I see grave concern

As I ask myself if their thoughts are sincere

After all these years of being complacent

What do I get? Tenderness, affection, a true sense of love?

No! Just a pain through a body chalk full of regret

I'll keep on believing my life still has value

And I'll keep on laughing

Why can't I stop laughing? I can't stop the laughing.
