Arlington

Album: On A Trip To Normal
(Budde)

 

There’s a gravestone down in Arlington
With the name of my first love
The box below is filled with dirt
And the vultures fly up above

 

In ’92 I buried you
In ’93 I mourned
After ten long years I’ve forgotten you
For the worms have left nothing more

 

Six feet of dirt is unforgiving
And so it seems am I
I don’t want to go down to Arlington
Please burn my when I die
Burn me when I die

 

There’s a plot for you down in Arlington
Where they’ll put you in due time
I will mourn for you down in Arlington
I can join you when it’s mine

 

I won’t feed the worms down in Arlington
Though I know it’s part of life
I don’t want to be six feet underground
I can’t tolerate the time

 

Six feet of dirt is unforgiving
And so it seems am I
I don’t want to go down to Arlington
Please burn me when I die
Burn me when I die
