If You Were Your Body

///If You Were Your Body


Verse 1
If you were your body
I guess it makes sense
To cover up old age by paint on face hair colour disguise
If you were your body
Reasonable yes
Arrange cryogenically freeze ’til they cure your disease

Chorus
But what if this body is not you
Is more or less outer dress you wear
Then how does your action plan stand up?
And what would you gain by hanging on
Long after your time is here and gone
Long after the game is lost and won?

Verse 2
If you were your body
I guess it makes sense
To identify I by kith and kin pigment colour in skin
If you were your body
Reasonable yes
Determine your best self interest D.N.A. to preserve

Instrumental

Repeat Chorus

Outro
If you were your body
Your body is you
