I'd Rather Be Deadly Than Dead

I’m the first to arrive and the last one to leave
When my body retires there’ll be no one to grieve
It don’t make me sad when I think I got lost
Getting found’s got a much higher cost

I made my way to the 26th floor
I got off on 13 and climbed 13 more
Down in the basement, under security locks
The fortune is kept in a box
Under glass and security locks

I went to the doctor to check out my heart
He said that he couldn’t find it
He won’t take my money because it’s no good
He won’t and nobody should
He won’t and nobody should

So sick and sad by the edge of the bed
I cannot escape this feeling of dread
I’d rather be blue than see red anyway
I’d rather be deadly than dead any day
I’d rather be deadly than dead any day
I’d rather be deadly than dead
