Things could be a lot worse

lyrics

Satisfaction don't go out of its way
To hold you close at night and call you each day
It ain't easy, I think we'd all agree
But if you want to see a truly sad sight then come with me
I've got an open invitation to a dead man's house party

You want the truth you know he'll tell you a lie
You're looking for a good time, he'll make you want to die
It ain't easy, I think we'd all agree
But if you want to put your life in to perspective then please oblige me
I've got an open invitation to a dead man's house party

There ain't no party hats, all the balloons are flat and nobody's doing the shake
All the food is old, there ain't a drink that's cold and his mammy's forgot the cake
It's curtains here nobody sheds a tear - death forgets you rapidly
But while you're still here have a drink to your health and live life happily

Don' be afraid to speak your mind
But you've got to understand that there's a right place and a right time
But it ain't easy, I think we'd all agree
If it's darkness or sadness or sorrow that's likely to please
I've got an open invitation to a dead man's house party
