Lyrics[edit]

    We're on a bullet
    and we're headed straight into god
    even he'd like to end it too
    we take a pill, get a face
    buy our ticket
    and we hope that heaven's true
    I saw a cop beat a priest on the TV
    and they know they killed our heroes too
    
    We sing the death song kids
    because we've got no future
    and we want to be just like you
    and we want to be just like you
    
    Let's sing the death song kids
    
    we light a candle on an earth
    we made into hell
    and pretend that we're in heaven
    each time we do we get
    the blind man's ticket
    and we know that nothing's true
    I saw priest kill a cop on the TV
    and I know now they're our heroes too
    
    We sing the death song kids
    because we've got no future
    and we want to be just like you
    and we want to be just like you
    
    we write our prayers on a little bomb
    kiss it on the face and send it to god
    
    We sing the death song kids
    because we've got no future
    and we want to be just like you
    and we want to be just like you
    
    We were the world
    but we've got no future
    and we want to be just like you
    we want to be just like you.
