I Hate Being Alone

lyrics

Everybody dies alone
from the still born baby to the man full grown
and I hate being alone
it drives me totally nuts
i hate it down to my bones
I hate it down in my guts
I hate being alone
I used to make my mom call my friends on the telephone
But sometimes no one was free
And then it would be me me me me

Everybody dies alone
but the consequences of this may be slightly
over blown
modern science doesn't know
and religion just forget it
no one knows where you go
when you breathe your final breath it means

no one knows where you go
could be a big empty room or a loud crowded rock show
you die alone, oh yes
but a second after that is anyone's guess

some people are comfortable seeing movies by themselves
or going to a restaurant table for one they don't need anyone else
they're fine just watching TV or drinking a beer at home
but not me, i'm terrified, man i hate being alone

what's so bad about me?
