lyrics

there was no other way for the cock to be slain
no way a little less painful or more humane
there was no other time, maybe later in life
maybe later in life or at least past prime

there was no better way for the plane to come down
like maybe over a lake or not even at all
there was no better time to lose a son
like when he could've been older and also had one

it's not that it had to be
but it was, now it is
so let it be
it's not that easy

there is no better time to flush out of my mind
the conditional tense I was taught when I was five
there is no better time to roast that rooster
and to call my mother up and tell her I'm fine

I'm fine
I'm fine, I'm fine, I'm fine
I'm fine, I'm fine, I'm fine
I think I believe it this time

it's not that it had to be
but it was, now it is
so let it be

it's not that easy
