Not My Problem, I’ll Be Dead lyrics

I ate my fill
But I won’t stay
Time for the bill
But I won’t pay
I’m unconcerned
With earthly strife
I’ll spend what I earned
In the afterlife

Not my problem
It’s yours instead
Not my problem
Soon I’ll be dead
Off to heaven
I had my fun
Off to heaven
This world is done

We’re past the peak
But life’s unfair
The future’s bleak
But I don’t care
Too late to pray
For the human race
I’m on my way
To the happy place
