Nowadays a name means nothing
Unless it's been dragged with disgrace
And thrown in its face.

Nowadays a star does not shine
Unless it has first fallen
From its own calling.

Nowadays a grave is the stage
And the show must be late
To see who will wait.

Nowadays death is your fame
A name in the news
The dead mans blues.

Nowadays death is your ticket,
After you've passed
You're known at last.
