when the elevator stops
on the other side
we gotta
suck it in
Mary went through to the other world
and we're still grieving

don't wanna be alone
on the other side
better get praying
cause mother read the catholic bible
it told her, everything

they say the other side is wonderful
we're told the other side is wonderful

so it's a beautiful place on the other side
they'll be no negative things
mother tries to keep the tears from your eyes
but in the end, there's surely nothing
it's sickening to think
mother broke a fortune cookie it told her
