Stan's Gone a-Haunting

(Heart and HAMMER)

Stan’s Gone a Hauntin’  

 
 
Oh this place is strange to me
Nothing’s where it used to be
What was hear is strangely there
And who I was has gone somewhere
Oh my, could it be I died.
 
I thought dying would be cool
like graduating from life school
But no, I’m stuck here in a store
that’s full of food I can’t eat no more.
That’s why, I’m guessin that I died.
 
I think it’s time I face the facts
I was not a happy man
Losing every race I ran.
 
And if I could I’d take it back
I would, but, that’s the breaks I guess
I wish that I could fix this mess
Death, it seems is quite complex
 
All the people here still breathe
and sample grapes and cheese for free
But me I wander down the rows
of beans and rice and pasta bows
and sigh, thinking, wow, I’ve died.
 
 
And if I could I’d take it back
I would, but, that’s the breaks I guess
I wish that I could fix this mess
Death, it seems is quite complex
 
I’m hoping that my stay here’s brief
That somehow I’ll resolve my grief
And move beyond the frozen meat
potato chips and cream  of wheat
and fly, ‘cause, after all, I’ve died....
I’ve died...
I’ve died
