lyrics

What did you expect? Nobody told you
At the dirt road's end there is nothing
Did you think there'd be a house?
Some kind of landmark?
So are your hopes dashed? I'm not sorry

'Cuz who decides where to put the plumbing in?
And who decides where to place the traffic lights?

What did you believe? Nobody taught you
At the long life's end there is nothing
Wanna leave a legacy? You're so important!
Want to change the world in your lifetime?

But who decides where to lay the green grass down?
And who decides where to plant the apple tree?
Who decides if it isn't up to you or me?

What do you wish for now? Nobody saved you
At the sermon's end there is silence
Have escape in mind? Pathetic coward!
Want to build a big bomb and destroy it instead?

So who decides what to leave on your tombstone?
Who decides when it's time to dig your bones?
Who decides how the world will linger on?
Who decides now that you are gone?
