Let me be buried in my Lamborghini
And fill the boot with magnums of champagne.
Place next to me a blonde in a bikini,
Two kilos of Columbian cocaine,
A Compaq laptop and a mobile phone.
Preserve my DNA to build a clone.

And let him know, as I know, life is hateful.
With Space and Time expanding like a bladder,
The best that you can do is fill your plate full,
Climb to success then kick away the ladder,
Go to your grave still clutching at your prizes:
Eternity's no time for compromises.
