Lyrics

We're all the same when we die


Like old Tutenkamen in his pyramid
Seems like he's been living for thousands of years
But you check his heartbeat and hear out for his breath
And like all of the rest of us he's truly dead
As there's one thing on earth that no-one can deny
That we're all the same when we die

And the beggar who begged outside his fine palace
And who had no-one close when his life passed from him
And someone dug a hole to prevent him stenching
Now he shares the same home with dead pharoahs and kings
As there's one thing on earth that no-one can deny
That we're all the same when we die

As for me and for you well our clothes are our skin
Coming into this world and from this world parting
And it doesn't help thinking how much you had left
For your family to bicker and fight over with
As you're watering daisies with your life's regrets
As we're all the same when we die

And the rich and the poor and the strong and the weak
The wealthy or famous or humble nothings
The beauty , the ugly , the fat or the thin
We're all on level ground as in our graves we sink
And we're all there together our swansong singing
We're all the same when we die
We’re all the same when we die
