lyrics

Each birth of every little baby
Is its own universe
Each one gives Death another trigger.
No hammer's lesson hurts worse.

I won't go out with a whimper.
I won't go out with a bang.
I haven't come into my winter.
I still get hunger pangs.
You think somehow I've been hindered.
I still feel the same.
You won't have me for your dinner.
I'm still in this game.

Every shadow hides a wolf pack
When the days get dark.
The fruit of trees is under snowfall.
We're forced to gnaw the bark.

I won't go out with a whimper.
I won't go out with a bang.
I haven't come into my winter.
I still get hunger pangs.
You think somehow I've been hindered.
I still feel the same.
You won't have me for your dinner.
I'm still in this game.

No matter what part of me gets crushed or cut off,
I'm corn on the cob and I'm ready to pop.
I'm a diamond
Stretched on a white cross,
Cooking in a spoon,
Bubbling, boiling hot,
Writing ecstasy tunes.

Now that I've lit the candelabra,
Join me for a feast.
We'll listen to some Handel operas
While playing Pin the Beast.

I won't go out with a whimper.
I won't go out with a bang.
I haven't come into my winter.
I still get hunger pangs.
You think somehow I've been hindered.
I still feel the same.
You won't have me for your dinner.
I'm still in this game.

(Lyrics by Karl Irish)
