One Hundred Years Lyrics

It doesn't matter if we all die

In a high building there is so much to do
Goin' home time a story on the radio

Somethin' small falls out of your mouth and we laugh

    Ambition in the back of a black car = Hearse
    High building so much to do = Jump to death
    One hundred years = amount of life whether a lot or a little
    Clean room = Morgue
    Yellow moon = Lights in morgue while your new piece of meat (body) is getting ready for the casket and viewing
    Black flag = Death
