The Afterlife
Electric Six Lyrics


Permanent smiles
Like two reptiles eating flies
Turning up dials
Like audiophiles hearing with their eyes

Reading and writing and ultimate fighting
When you lay down with dogs, you lay with my dogs
Scratching and biting is oh so exciting
When you lay down with dogs, you lay with my dogs
There is no exodus in the afterlife [the afterlife]
There is no point to this in the afterlife [the afterlife]

[Life]
[Music]
[Life]

De-materialize and hide your greatest failing
Open up your eyes and fantasize you're sailing away

Cleaning and scrubbing will greatly improve this
When you lay down with dogs, you lay with my dogs
Bouncing and clubbing’s the new kind of hubris
When you lay down with dogs, you lay with my dogs

There is no consequence in the afterlife [the afterlife]
There is no border fence in the afterlife [the afterlife]
There is no consequence in the afterlife [the afterlife]
There is no border fence in the afterlife [the afterlife]

Electric Six can sing about anything and make it sound delicious.

+TheUnassembled Or make a song about nothing and still be entertaining as hell.

Eelco J. van Kampen

Such a great sounding song. Sounds like classics such as:: The Future Is In The Future, Transatlantic Flight, White Eyes and Synthesizer; just amazing stuff :)

Recognizing? From whom..? They would not get it anyway. You are recognized in this feeling of how significant this song & band is. Guess you & fans of E6 are capable of understanding how significant it is where as many wouldn't understand.
