Whistle past the graveyard

Well I always kind of like to be surprised
I don't wanna be told what happens after I die
Death like a mystery gift wrapped up in a box
Sent from infinity and stamped with question marks
Everyone's got theirs and I've got mine
People shake it, weigh it, discuss it all the time
I tend to think there's nothing at all in it
But it's cool that I could find out any minute

And I whistle past the graveyard when I walk
'Cos I don't want to hear the corpses talk
I don't wanna hear them grumble and complain
Or discuss how much they want to eat my brain

And I always kind of like to be surprised
I don't wanna be told what happens after I die
Yeah, I don't want to hear the corpses talk
And I'll whistle past the graveyard when I walk

(Whistling)

Well if we lived forever we'd really wanna find out
But what a relief, we all die, so there's nothing to worry about
Some people say life is empty
Some say it's meaningless
Some say that isn't such a bad thing (yes it is)
Some say I'm wrong and I'll die and go to hell
But I'd be happy just knowing there was a point so it's just as well
People assume you'll suffer there
They just think you're selfish
But if I was in hell I'd be happy knowing other people were in heaven
It would make hell not so hellish

And I whistle past the graveyard when I walk
'Cos I don't want to hear the corpses talk
But I want black cats to cross my path and I pick up bad pennies
I say if there's monsters in my closet then come and get me

Yeah, but I always kind of like to be surprised
I don't wanna be told what happens after I die
No, I don't want to hear the corpses talk
And I whistle past the graveyard when I walk

Love these lyrics.
"I say if there's monsters in my closet then come and get me " when i was a kid my friends told me that imustn't leave my feet out of the blanket or a monster will grab me from under your bed, i always let my feet hanging cos i wanted to know...this line reminds me of this.

Well, i've always liked to be afraid, always enjoyed a good nightmare, mostly cos i've always known there is no such things as monsters under the bed.

Lyrics are awesome, dual meanings yet alluring, causing cold shivering in spine. Rock star. Graveyard monsters are my biggest fears.
