Alkaline Trio Politely Asks, "Your Coffin Or Mine?"

Alkaline Trio Politely Asks, "Your Coffin Or Mine?"

"And you can't breathe without coughing at daytime. Neither can I.
So what do you say?/Your coffin or mine? -Matt Skiba

I've always loved the climax, or final line, of Alkaline Trio's "Blue In The Face," where Skiba asks, "Your coffin or mine?" A brilliant pun that plays perfectly with the other coughing our fateful lovers engage in.

Interestingly enough, I was googling the lyrics to this song when I came across this classic Lou Reed interview, ironically titled, "Blue In The Face." I'll leave that right here for your enjoyment.
