That's When You Die
words, lyrics, and music by David Kleiner

Just when you finally get past it, you are emotionally mature
Just when you finally fixed that gasket on the refrigerator door
Just when you filled your shopping basket at the Mega-Warehouse Store
Everything's fine, everything's good
Everything's going just like it should..

That's when you die, that's when you burn
That's when you fry for the lessons you never learned
You've been waiting in line-- now it's your turn
Wave bye bye
That's when you die

Just when you rotated your tires, you finally turned your life around
Just when you finally got inspired, just when your sunglasses were found
Just when you learn that the 3rd wire is supposed to be the ground
Everything's fine, everything's good
Everything's going just like it should...

That's when you die, that's when you croak
That's when there's no more chicken left to choke
This is the punchline to a very long joke
Wave bye bye
That's when you die

And for one fleeting moment you see your life passing before you
And the scariest part is it immediately starts to bore you

Everything's good, everything's fine
Maybe I could try this all one more time...

That's when you die, that's when you burn
That's when you fry for the lessons you never learned
You've been waiting in line-- now it's your turn
Wave bye bye
That's when you die
