When My Blood Stops Movin’

words and music by Paul Spencer, 2016

1. No-one knows what happens when we die,
So I’ll speak for myself, if not for you,
Well nothin’ can be proven, but when my blood stops movin’ it’s goodbye,
It’s the end of thoughts and dreams, or at least to me that seems,
To be the simplest and most likely to be true.

2. Perhaps you plan to have another try,
Just grow a brand new body, same old soul,
Well nothin’ can be proven, but when my blood stops movin’ it’s goodbye,
The line is hard to find between the spirit, brain, and mind,
It’s doubtful that one part outlives the whole.

Chorus:
I won’t go anywhere, I’ll just keep lyin’ there,
But I won’t be called a person anymore,
Then my flesh will call it quits, and I’ll slowly fall to bits,
And my atoms will stay more or less the way they were before.

3. Or will you join the angels up on high?
And dwell in perfect love for ever more,
Well nothin’ can be proven, but when my blood stops movin’ it’s goodbye,
Eternity is fiction, and the same goes for perfection,
I don’t know but I’m reasonably sure.

4. There is no complex doctrine I live by,
The story is both simple and profound,
Well nothin’ can be proven, but when my blood stops movin’ it’s goodbye,
And the lessons it can teach us are as good as those that reach us
By any other path I’ve seen around.

Chorus
