Everyone has gone away,
Can you hear me? Can you hear me?
No one cared enough to stay,
Can you hear me?

You must remember me, old man,
I know that you can if you try,
So just open up your eyes, old man,
Look who's come to say, "Good-bye."

The sun has left the sky, old man,
The birds have flown away,
And no one came to cry old man,
Good-bye, Old Man, good-bye.

You want to stay, I know you do,
But it ain't no use to try, 
'Cause I'll be here, and I'm just like you.
Good-bye, old man, good-bye.

Won't be no God to comfort you,
You taught me not to believe that lie.
You don't need anybody,
Nobody needs you,
Don't cry, old man, don't cry.
Everybody dies.
