My Name Is Death

Appearing On:

From The Vanishing Point

Lyrics:

Hey there, fellas. My name is Death
So when you see me coming
Better hold your breath

Some call me the repo man ‘cause I seem to collect where ever I am
I’m often called the big finale
I’ve got a tendency for bringing the curtain down
And I can’t help my reputation precedes me
Like clouds before the storm
You’ll run for cover, believe me
And I start every conversation the same, saying…

CHORUS
Hey there, fellas. My name is Death
So when you see me coming
Better hold your breath
‘Cause I’m your last gasp
I’m your sweet retreat
I’m the baddest motherfucker you will ever meet
‘Cause I’m free to come and go as I please
I wear the seven deadly sins upon my sleeve
And I’m dying to meet you now
I’ve got a handshake you’ll never forget, my friend
I’m the end. My name is Death

Now, don’t think I’m all work and no play
I’ve just got a knack for taking people’s breath away
It’s not to say exceptions can’t be made
When the Stones wrote me a song, I cut ‘em a break
And I can’t help I’m dressed best in black
Even better than the late great Johnny Cash
And I shot more men in Reno than he ever did. I told ‘em…

CHORUS

I’ve got a million weapons and ways to use ‘em
From nuclear power to drugs and boozing
But my favorite just might be the element of surprise. I whisper…

CHORUS
I’ve got a handshake you’ll never forget
And I mean no disrespect
But if you see me coming, better run

‘Cause my name is Death
