There's no way you're gettin them ashes, young man
They go in the plot to Uncle George and Aunt Jen!

He looked at the shirts through stinging tears,
But nothing is as it appears.
Why do we consume what we consume?
Why do we believe what we believe?
Why do we accept what we accept?
You have a body, a mind, and a soul.... You have a responsibility.

"How could you die and leave me alone?"

How am I to live like this," he groaned.

"For I loved you so much, for all those years".



The shirts, they hang on the closet door,
Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect.

It means you've decided to see beyond the imperfection

Reminders of a time that was no more,
When Jack and Ennis had just found love,

Reminders of a time that was no more,
When Jack and Ennis had just found love,
And their spirits soared with the birds above.

And their spirits soared with the birds above.
The joy 'twas whispered in their hearts' core.

(Yes that was an intentional singular)
