After the Afterlife
CocoRosie Lyrics


Welcome to the afterlife
Welcome to the afterlife

Sitting by the river
I think I smell some rain
Silver puddles glitter
Behind the old jail
Wet snails get wetter
The air sifts like snow
Moth wings crumble by a daylit fire
Ash of deadwood pil higher
Pyre for fox guts blazing mire

Welcome to the afterlife
Welcome to the afterlife

Afternoon time
After lifetime
Twilight's best for venus fly trap
Cloudless drops tare at my cheek
Bruised speaker raven's beak
Neon stars twinkle in the night
Sage-smoke, rainbow, money signs

Welcome to the afterlife
Welcome to the afterlife

Sitting by the river, I think I smell some rain
Silver puddles glitter behind the old jail
Wet snails get wetter, crawling towards perfume
The air silks like snow
Moth wings crumble by a day-lit fire
Ash of dead wood pile
Higher, pyre for false gods,
Blazing mires

Welcome to the afterlife...

High afternoon times, afterlife times,
Twilight's best for Venus flytrap
Cloudless drops tear at my cheeks
Brusque speak a raven beak
Neon stars twinkle in the night
Sage smoke, rainbow, money signs

Welcome to the afterlife...

I listened to this song in the car when I was 16, 3 years ago.
I was in the car in the garage. The garage door was closed and the car was on, I had a tube running from the exhaust to my nose/mouth. I wanted this song to be what I heard as I left. I wasn't sad like you'd think though, I was excited to finally "escape".

Obviously that failed. Someone heard the car and called 911, the police knocked the door down.

Just felt like sharing that.

My favorite group at the moment, dying to not simply meet them, but to talk and work with Cocorosie would be a dream
