I am the boy your mother wanted you to meet
But I am, broken and torn with halos at my feet
And with your purest light why don't you shine on me
Well I should have been an angel, but I'm too dumb to speak

Now as she gets nearer, the visions get clearer
I'm kneeling, weeping, I will hold her dear
Oh, if your eyes water
You've got your favorite number to spin

What a crying shame
A crying shame, what we became

Murdered my throat screaming bloody all night
Hit him with a book and how he crumbles
Oh you should have seen, how the arches tumble
They're golden no more now I'm smiling in my blood

I'm caught in a whirlwind
I'm going to heaven
I'm standing on trial and it's painted on canvas
An eternal testament to how we are so animalistic

What a crying shame
A crying shame, what we became

I bow my head in the morning light and say goodnight
I held her hand and I, I kissed her eyes
Stumbled down the stairs and hang my self, on high
And I started for the town that I have a front yard, and died
