The Lyrics

"You're a dead man, Steve! A dead man!" "Prove it"
I'm all dressed up with nowhere to go
Thought I was a dead man? Real disappointer
I'm all dressed up with nowhere to go
You called me a dead man, think I'll live longer


I can feel the indignation in you rise
When it seems I've hardly been scratched by butter knives
That's the only pain description that feels right
Sorry, but you've hardly defeated me, alright

You're not one for fightin', are you? Plain to see
Because I felt nothin' from what you dealt me
I'm a dead man? Hardly, that's a joke, for sure
All those spears you're thrustin' in resulted in no gore
Swords resulted in no bloody gore

I won't be laid down six feet deep
Six feet deep

All dressed up with nowhere to go
Said I was a dead man, huh, not a dead man
Ooh, ooh-ooh, where is the evisceration you described?
Ooh! Sure I was a dead man (dead man), not a dead man
I do detest you and your lies
Very loudly did you holler that I would die
Yet after all the bullets, spears and swords
Huh, there's not one bruise or blemish on my form

Your insults were bitin' (bitin'), kinda-ish, maybe
I expected somethin', might grade you a "D"
I'm a dead man? Hardly, that's a joke, for sure
Those axes you're chuckin' have not caused me any gore
Bombs resulted in no bloody gore

I won't be laid down six feet deep
Doubt I'll be slain at this slow rate, you see (you see)
Won't see me laid down six feet deep (six feet deep)
Thought I'd be slain? Sorry, tough cookies

Still standin', see

You could say I'm lyin', that I'm soon to bleed
I've read lots of manga with delayed death scenes
I'm a dead man? Hardly (hardly), that's a joke, for sure
I have not been punctured by your missiles, there's no gore
I'm a hologram, so there's no gore

I didn't say that, wasn't me (wasn't me)
Keep up the fray, throw all that you've got, please (got, please)
And if you waste your stock, you'll see (cause you'll see)
That I'm just great and not a false me

It's really me
Just can't hurt me
It's really me
Just awesome, see
It's really me
You won't hurt me (won't hurt me)
It's really me
I'll never bleed
It's really me
