Don't Look Down

For your sake I hope there is no afterlife
don't look down, don't look down
so you don't see the mess made of you suicide
don't look down, don't look down

I hope there are no radios where you are
cause you don't want to hear what's going on
cancel all your magazine subscriptions

somewhere Jimmy Morrison's explaining it
and somewhere there's a talk show being born
and somewhere we're already sick to death of it

Mom said it was the heroin that did it
newspapers say it was the fame
I say it was the shotgun what's the difference
there won't be another album

somewhere you got someone reading Hemmingway
and somewhere there's a teenager to frown
and somewhere a boy drags guns out of the river
don't look down
