The Afterlife
YACHT Lyrics


Land of the empire builders, land of Golden West
Conquered and held by free men, fairest and the best
Onward and upward, ever forward on and on
Hail to thee, the land of heroes, yours when dead and gone

Hail to thee, land of heroes
It's all yours when you're dead and gone

The afterlife, hey, we know how to make life go on
The afterlife, death is not the end of this song
The afterlife

Land of the rose and sunshine, land of summer's breeze
Laden with health and vigor, fresh from the western seas
Blessed by the blood of martyrs, land of setting sun
Hail to thee, land of promise, the end of our system

Hail to thee, land of promise
Life at the end of our system

The afterlife inside your own private kingdom
The afterlife, hey, [Incomprehensible]
The afterlife

It's not a place you go, it's a place that comes for you
And it's not about who you know or who's in your heart
It may come as a surprise but you are not alone
All that you have is not what you own

It's not a place you go, it's a place that comes for you
And it's not about who you know or who's in your heart
It may come as a surprise but you are not alone
All that you have is not what you own

It's not a place you go, it's a place that comes for you
And it's not about who you know or who's in your heart
It may come as a surprise but you are not alone
All that you have is not what you own

It's not a place you go, it's a place that comes for you
And it's not about who you know or who's in your heart
It may come as a surprise but you are not alone
All that you have is not what you own

The afterlife
The afterlife
The afterlife
The afterlife

You guys are awesome. As many others, I found out about you on GTA 5. The catchy music production along with the simple vocals are very appreciated. Countless times have I loathed over done, try-too-hard vocals from artists such as Christina Aguilera and Beyonce. I appreciate not being annoyed by vocals while they still sound appealing.

As a native Oregonian. I am very proud that these guys came from the Portland scene. These guys have a style all their own jus like Portland. Keep it coming !!

When I was baptized at 23, I only got a dab of water on my forehead rather than full submersion. I don't even believe anymore but somehow still feel cheated out of a real baptism. Anyway, awesome video.
