"bite the dust" in lyrics
I'm able to piss off, I can be charming,
I'm able to call you without a single word.
I'm able to win, I may bite the dust,
I do know that, without all of you, this hurts more.
And in bad times I would not be allowed to leave this life behind
And you would sell me, I mean nothing to you
Tell me please how often did I have to bite the dust
Tell me how often was I used by you
A loud bang, a short flight,
The television bit the dust first,<fn>"dran glauben müssen" is a phrase meaning "to bite the dust"</fn>
(Then) the night lamp and the fridge as well.
