about

A song spoken from the perspective of a schizophrenic woman. Taken from the headlines and Inspired by an accident that happened some years ago.

lyrics

Do you get straight A’s
And take your vitamin C
Well I couldn’t bare the thought of you growing up to be like me
When you draw with your crayons

Do you stay in the lines?
Does the sunshine bother you when it gets in your eyes?

Chorus:

If we strip down, down
We could make ourselves pure
Hitchhike back to the lord and reach heaven for sure
Count 1 2 3 4, a-1 2 3 4 5
Go tell it on the mountain that we have arrived

Go tell them we have arrived
Mama, Papa they love you
But what about your old anty

I could spare you this life of cold and abject poverty
In life there is indifference
You know there’s love and there’s hate
You’re too young to know the difference
So we’ll cross the Interstate

Chorus

You are my pirate and princess
And two and one they make three
We’ll eat cake and give gifts
And this gift is for me

We’ll write our names for the last time
Only this time will be in stone
And we’ll do it together
So that we won’t be alone

Chorus: END
