lyrics

It's been a long time coming
And it's come to a head
I don't know how I have gone so long
I should already be dead

Somewhere between the drink and the high
You'll see my body floatin' between the ocean and the sky
And I'm wonderin' how long it's gonna take
Before my body's gonna break

I've got a good ticker
Yes I was built to last
But I've thrown too many wrenches
Into the gears too fast

Now my engine don't run like it used to
I'm slowin' down and sputterin' and don't have a pit crew
And I'm wonderin' how long it's gonna take
Before my body's gonna break

It's been a long time comin'
And I've certainly been warned
After all is said and done
I know I will be mourned

I'm sorry that I didn't take better care
I'm sorry if this song is just too much for you to bear
But I don't want no funeral
I would prefer a wake
When my body is to break
