On the day that Daniel Cowman stopped existing
The world should've ended right then and there
Precisely four fifteen when he stopped existing
The world should've ended, how could it go on?

How could it go on, how could it go on
When I don't exist, I don't exist, I don't exist, I don't exist
I don't exist, I don't exist, I don't exist, I don't exist?

And now that we got that straight, doesn't mean that I can fly
Doesn't mean that I can go do whatever I want
Now that we got that clear and you know that I'm not here
Doesn't mean that I can go do whatever I please

The premature ejaculation of his death sentence
Hit Daniel in the face like a big round spitball
And everything got hazy in the courtroom
And then he stood up and then he sat back down

Another two times in a row and everything got real slow
Like a gunshot in the movies and he remembered heroin boy
Walking through the door, bouncing off the walls and the floor
Taking off his belt, taking off his pants, filling up the bathtub
Getting ready to go in for a swim, singing

"I don't exist, I don't exist, I don't exist, I don't exist
I don't exist, I don't exist, I don't exist, I don't exist
I don't exist, I don't exist"

So now that we got that straight, doesn't mean that I can fly
Doesn't mean that I can go do whatever I want
Now that we got that clear and you know that I'm not here
Doesn't mean that I can go do whatever I please

And he start rememberin' and rememberin'
And rememberin' and rememberin' and rememberin'

The heroin boy'd walk through the door
And he was screaming and everyone was like
"What're you screaming as if it's the end of the world?"
And he was, "Like, well it is"

And I was sitting in the corner with my pants down
And I was sure someone next door was blowing up balloons
And they was red and orange

And there was this one lady at the bar and she was trying to buy gin
And this other lady at the bar and she was trying to sell gin
And it worked out good for the both's of 'em

And heroin boy started taking off his belt
Started taking off his pants, started taking off his shoes
Filling up the bathtub, getting ready to go in for a swim
I says, "No, you're gonna drown ", and he says, "No, I can't drown"
Simply because, shh

A man destined to hang can never drown
A man destined to hang can never drown
A man destined to hang can never ever drown

A man destined to drown can never burn
A man destined to drown can never burn
A man destined to drown can never ever burn

A man destined to fry can never ever ever
A man destined to fry can never ever ever
A man destined to fry can never ever ever die in any other way

Frying, lucky that I'm dying by hanging and not drowning
So now that we got that straight, can't I just be left alone?
I want to take a fucking bath
