Maybe it's my morbid mentality Maybe it's the pessimistic realist within me-

"I'm sorry for your loss"

Maybe it's my morbid mentality

Maybe it's my morbid mentality Maybe it's the pessimistic realist within me-

But I never quite understand,

But I never quite understand, why people express:

But I never quite understand, why people express: "I'm sorry for your loss"

Because the truth of it is,

Because the truth of it is, he is not lost.

Because the truth of it is, he is not lost. I know exactly where he is.

He's not six feet underground.

He's not six feet underground. He's not in heaven.

He's not six feet underground. He's not in heaven. Or in hell.

He's sitting on my shelf,

He's sitting on my shelf, in an air tight container,

He's sitting on my shelf, in an air tight container, one that spins...

He's sitting on my shelf, in an air tight container, one that spins... with slots for pictures... (I suppose you can simply call it an urn)

But to me it's a tiny casket,

But to me it's a tiny casket, filled with ash,

But to me it's a tiny casket, filled with ash, and the bones that didn't burn.

So please,

So please, don't be sorry for my loss,

So please, don't be sorry for my loss, or for anyone else's,

So please, don't be sorry for my loss, or for anyone else's, because the ones who have departed,

So please, don't be sorry for my loss, or for anyone else's, because the ones who have departed, are never truly lost.

So please, don't be sorry for my loss, or for anyone else's, because the ones who have departed, are never truly lost. We know exactly where they are.
