lyrics

Did you hear the death rattle?
We need to be sure that he passed
Pull the plug, seal the body bag, alert the press
Fred is dead at last

Make his family clean the bedpan
We gotta take the evening off
So clock out, lock up, take off your rainbow scrubs
It’s time to fucking dance
Who’s coming out to party?

(Paint the town red)
It’s time to celebrate
(Your god is dead)
There’s no heaven’s gate
(Paint the town red)
He can’t hear your prayers or your hate

So don’t make arrangements
Just keep the cost of the casket down
Wrap his body in a pride flag, throw it in that hole
Just get him underground

Don’t even think about a protest
They all expect a spectacle
A sad, old white man whose heart has stopped
One less at the hospital
Who’s coming out to party?

(Paint the town red)
It’s time to celebrate
(Your god is dead)
There’s no heaven’s gate
(Paint the town red)
He can’t hear your prayers or your hate

Now Fred is dead
And in his final moments
I hope he felt regret
And realized that god does not exist
Fred is dead
A vacant hospital bed
I know we can’t pretend
That this means hatred will end
But it’s a reason to party

(Paint the town red)
It’s time to celebrate
(Your god is dead)
There’s no heaven’s gate
(Paint the town red)
He can’t hear your prayers or your hate
