When The Vetivers Die

When The Vetivers die, and they're going to
Something falls from the sky and breaks them in two
Or a big evil monster dismembers them
Anybody around to remember them?

Twenty-five years from now will you remember this?
Anyone in the band that you wanna kiss?
Ever wonder just what they would look like nude?
Maybe now they thinking the same of you

When The Vetivers die, and they're going to
Something falls from the sky and breaks them in two
Or a big evil monster dismembers them
Anybody around to remember them?

Will the Vetivers' lives ever be avenged?
Will there be a memorial at Stonehenge?
Were there entire lives just a big fat pun?
Who will take care of Ben's illegitimate son?

When The Vetivers die, and they're going to
Something falls from the sky and breaks them in two
Or a big evil monster dismembers them
Anybody around to remember them?

Look at my feet and can you tell me where they've walked?
Some people tell time by their shoes instead of clocks
Look in my eyes and can you tell me what they've seen?
Some people never want to look at anything

If the world's about to end
Then we're all our final friends
But we've got a lot of time
Not to get along

On the last day of earth before the sun explodes
Historians will gather everything they know
And for a fond farewell they'll recognize this tune
And broadcast stills of Bob and David, Flex, and June

If the world's about to end
Then we're all our final friends
But we've got a lot of time
Not to get along

When The Vetivers die, and they're going to
Something falls from the sky and breaks them in two
Or a big evil monster dismembers them
Anybody around to remember them?

When the City of Champions is in front of you
And the darkened sky seeks to envelop you
Quickly think of the fate of The Vetivers
Take a train to the farthest place you've ever heard
