Dan Bull – Just Die Already Lyrics

[Verse 1]
So I might open with a real light joke, right? Real life is a real life rougelike
There’s no F Five key to rewind what we don’t like
So we spend most our time   just   hoping   that we won’t   die
So when I   look around and see someone that’s elderly (yeah)
I tell myself they’re either winning life or found a cheat
And yet they’re treated as some selfish freaks who’ve failed to leave
Who’ve somehow outstayed their welcome with the power to breathe
Well, I’ve come around to tell them though I doubt it’s seldom seen
That their very presence is a present I’m proud to receive
This is for the OG’s, old geezers, fogeys
Bolted up in the old folks’ home with no keys
It must be lonely up atop the holy escalator
But eventually we’re each the next to leave so check you later
Being senior seems to me between being tuckered out
And realising there’s so much to not give a fuck about
[Chorus]
It’s been a long time, been a long time, been a long
Lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely time
It’s been a long time, been a long time, been a long
Lonely, lonely, lonely, such a lonely time
[Verse 2]
To the church-going folk, I hope you all pray for me
Because I’ve no hope of growing old gracefully
Life’s a fatal disease so I’m just waiting to see
What exciting places it might be taking me
I’m going to be an OAP that’s OP
Hope to be as old as Gandalf and Obi-Wan Kenobi
Living is so me, I’m going to get enough
Although I won’t reach the one hundred and twenty-seven club
Prejudice putting needless junk between us as the Devil does
The way we treat them is the treatment that’s ahead of us
Old people are previously youngsters who just levelled up
Being senior should be seen as something just incredible
[Chorus]
It’s been a long time, been a long time, been a long
Lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely time
It’s been a long time, been a long time, been a long
Lonely, lonely, lonely, such a lonely time
It’s been a long time, been a long time, been a long
Staying young ’til I become an ancient one’s my one desire
Lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely time
It’s been a long time, been a long time, been a long
If you can’t feel the bass turn up your hearing aid and pump it higher
Lonely, lonely, lonely, such a lonely time
[Verse 3]
What you have to do is hang on through until the chumps retire
Then wack them in the trash, but dude, that attitude’s a dumpster fire
Passing youth’s a fact that you and I will come to cry at
And grapple with the facts that we refused confronting prior
There’s an infinite abyss in front of us but I am
Not the really kind of guy to just give and come so quietly
Succumb to higher creature comforts and just lie in piece
‘Cause once I die, at least I’d like to be thunk of in high esteem
Nah, never mind, being in the freakin’ riot police
I’ll speed at an entire fleet while screaming in the driver’s seat
‘Til I’m a bleeding pile of meat, the kind that lions eat
Now darling, be a sweet and bring my slippers, I’ve got tired feet
[Chorus]
It’s been a long time, been a long time, been a long
Lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely time
It’s been a long time, been a long time, been a long
Lonely, lonely, lonely, such a lonely time
[Verse 4]
Just because there’s nothing left to prove
Doesn’t mean there’s nothing left to do
But as seasons pass the fee increases for your season pass
‘Til you’re a seasoned passenger of centuries who sees ’em pass
Put to pasture, don’t repeat the past, you need some greener grass
They plan to treat you as a weed in fields that need reseeding fast
I see you creeping of your peak productive beaten path
‘Til even keeping up with previous achievements seems to drag
I don’t believe that each of us can be surpassing Pete & Bas
I mean it’s been an eon since you’ve even had a decent shag
Another day, they might discover me in glacial ice
Or maybe I’ll be vaporised to nada but a ray of light
Descendents won’t remember whether I’ve blue, gray or hazel eyes
But it’s irrelevant, man, it’s whatever fate decides
So I’ll just say this, mate, whatever may arise
I’ll stay alive ’til the day I die (huh)
[Chorus]
It’s been a long time, been a long time, been a long
Lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely time
It’s been a long time, been a long time, been a long
Lonely, lonely, lonely, such a lonely time
It’s been a long time, been a long time, been a long
Staying young ’til I become an ancient one’s my one desire
Lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely time
It’s been a long time, been a long time, been a long
If you can’t feel the bass turn up your hearing aid and pump it higher
Lonely, lonely, lonely, such a lonely time
