Let’s Pretend We’re Dead Animated Music Video

June Cleaver and the Steak Knives presents the animated music video, “Let’s Pretend We’re Dead”.

This is a song about the very ABSURD IDEA that
your life will be better when you’re dead.
It is in NO WAY intended to promote or glorify suicide or self harm.

If you are considering suicide, please contact help.

Most of us have an ever present fear of death, always lurking just below the surface, moderating our every move, if only subconsciously. But maybe we’re looking at it all wrong! We’re all going to die someday, so maybe we should just embrace the whole concept. Look on the bright side of death! That’s what our latest video for our song, Let’s Pretend We’re Dead, strives to do. Pat Bradley’s stunning animation is the perfect visual accompaniment to a very dark, morbid, cheerful, upbeat song. This is the song that got us kicked off of Tic Toc, somehow totally misunderstanding the entire nature of the idea. This is not promoting suicide in any way. This is valuing life by celebrating death, and really, it’s all pretend. It is a journey for the imagination alone. At least until your bell starts tolling.

Lyrics:
Let’s Pretend We’re Dead

Another miserable day, but
I’ve got a new game to play
Dressed in black, why are they looking so sad
Digging, digging, digging our graves

In this fantasy, I see
Our obituary
It’s so wrong, they were much too young
Such a horrible tragedy

Let’s pretend, let’s pretend we’re dead
Let’s pretend that this is the end
Life will be so much easier when
When we’re lying dead

No more arguments, no one’s
Getting under my shriveled skin
Everyone claims to have known me
Suddenly I have so many friends

No need to be sad, no way
To shake this boney fist
No pain, no complications
Nothing hurts when you don’t exist

So, let’s pretend, let’s pretend we’re dead
Let’s pretend that this is the end
Never need to get of this bed
When were lying dead

Now I’m being embalmed, but
It doesn’t hurt at all
There’s no pain in this rotting brain, and
How our Problems they seem so small

While you’re set a blaze in this
Industrial furnace
Can’t wait to see their faces
At our beautiful funeral service

Lying underground nothing gets you down
I have no need to be upset
Hey! What ya say, no more bills to pay
And to my children, I leave all my debt

And now we’ll leave the earth
With only good things to say
Because there’s no fighting in heaven
Assuming that we’re heading that way

Let’s pretend, let’s pretend we’re dead
Let’s pretend that this is the end
We could face this world alive, but instead
Let’s pretend we’re dead

Let’s pretend, let’s pretend we’re dead
Let’s pretend that this is the end
Life will be so much better when
When We’re are lying dead
When we’re finally dead
Let’s pretend were dead
