I'm sorry about the sun.
How could I know?
That you'd get burned?
And I'm Sorry about the moon.
How could I know you'd disapprove?
I'll never make the same mistake.
The next time I create the universe
I'll make sure we communicate at length
Just to play it safe.

But until then,
Better off dead, a smile on the lips and a hole in the head
Better off dead, yeah better than this
Take it away cause there's nothing to miss
I'm sorry about the world
How could I know you'd take it so bad?
And I'll never make the same mistake
The next time I create the universe I'll make sure you participate.

But until then,
Better off dead, a smile on the lips and a hole in the head
Better off dead, yeah better than this
Take it away cause there's nothing to miss
Better off dead, yeah better off dead
Why don't you try pushing daisies instead
Better off dead, yeah better off dead,
A smile on the lips and a hole in the head
And I'll never make the same mistake

The next time I create the universe I'll make sure you participate
Oh yeah
And I'll never make the same mistake
The next time I create the universe I'll make sure we communicate
Just in case.
