Old People in the Cemetery LyricsArtist: Of Montreal
Album: Aldhil's Arboretum
what must they be thinking of?
must be frightening must be scary
to visit the grave of a close friend
who was the same age as you when they died
There's nothing precious about
old people in the cemetery
reciting bible passages
unprepared to come to terms with
the fact that we're all food for worms
what do they think a prayer
could make a difference now?
There's nothing sadder than
an old woman in the cemetery
picking leaves off of her husbands tomb
Knowing that her only wish is
that she will die and join him soon
It's so sad to see them all just wither away,
there's nothing sadder then old people like that
It must be hard to relate
after the world of your youth
Old men in the cemetery
lurking like faint shadows of the dead
gazing down at mother's plot
and longing to be there instead
it's a dreary fate and
no one should have to be as depressing
as old people like that
