Chain & The Gang – Deathbed Confession Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I was walking down the street
I saw a helicopter flying over me
And some guy was being held from it by his feet
He was dropped down and he hit the ground
I approached him and I asked if there was anything I can do
He said, “It’s too late for me I guess
But there’s something I’d like to get off my chest
And would you listen please?”
Well, I had to say yes
This is what he said
He said:

I killed JFK
On a sunny day
With some other guys you still see walking around
I was on a grassy knoll
Dressed like a hobo
With another guy dressed like a clown
I said, “Wow, is that true?”
But he just turned blue
And then he said
He said:

It’s my time, I’ve got to go, let this be a lesson
This is my deathbed confession
It’s my time, I’ve got to go, let this be a lesson
This is my deathbed confession

[Verse 2]
Well, after that I decided to take a walk by the seashore
As I was looking out at the ocean a submarine surfaced
And I was a guy get thrown off the deck
As he tried to swim ashore, he was badly mauled by sharks
He crawled onto the sand
I tried to give him a hand but he said, “No – it’s too late for me
But you know, I’ve got some stuff I’ve got to confess”
And this is what he said
He said:

I killed MLK for the CIA
And Malcom X for Federal Express
George Jackson, Fred Hampton, Bobby Hunt
And yeah, and all the rest
Yeah, that’s what he said
He said:

It’s my time, I’ve got to go, let this be a lesson
This is my deathbed confession
It’s my time, I’ve got to go, let this be a lesson
This is my deathbed confession

[Verse 3]
Man
So I kept walking and I walked by this fast food establishment
There was a distinguished looking guy inside
And he started choking on his french fries
And crawled out onto the pavement
Yeah, then he started to die
I tried to give him CPR and he said, “No –
But sonny, I’ve got something to confess”
I said, “I’m no priest”
He said, “That’s ok, make this easy on me”
This is what he had to say
He said:

I faked the moon landing
I saved Hitler’s brain
Yeah, it’s in Argentina but it controls the USA
I fixed the pope’s election
I did the October Surprise
I was the French Connection
I’ve got Ray Charles’ eyes
I did the Gulf of Tonkin
Got Saddam to invade
I planned the Bay of Pigs
I put Lumumba in his grave
He said
That’s what he said

It’s my time, I’ve got to go, let this be a lesson
This is my deathbed confession
It’s my time, I’ve got to go, let this be a lesson
This is my deathbed confession
It’s my time, I’ve got to go, let this be a lesson
This is my deathbed confession
It’s my time, I’ve got to go, let this be a lesson
This is my deathbed confession
