April 2, 2014.

I tried to write a song to capture this particular moment, but then I realised there is already a song written for this particular moment: At Yr Funeral.

This song was originally written by Saves the Day, and, in my humble opinion, it was a bookend for a very particular moment in time.

More information about Saves the Day can be found at:

If yr new to Saves the Day, I'd recommend checking out these LPs: "Can't Slow Down," "Through Being Cool," and "Stay What You Are." The albums released after this, while fine, aren't nearly as sweet as these three... again, in my humble opinion.


This song will become the anthem of yr underground.
Yr two floors down getting high in the back room.

If I flooded out yr house, do you think you'd make it out?
Or would you burn up before the water filled yr lungs?

And at yr funeral
I will sing the requiem.
I'd offered you my hand.
It would hurt too much
to watch you drown.

This song will become...

And at yr funeral...

And you can bet
[when] we mourned
the death of you that night.
Lay me on the dinner table
I will be the pig
With the apple in my mouth
the food that celebrates yr death

And at yr funeral...


released 03 April 2014
Lyrics by Chris Conley.
Music by Saves the Day.
Performed, in this particular case, by the Ghostwrite.
