Lament of a Lunatic

Why can't I live? I do dead so lively.. No one alive is in death So why should I die alone? Mommy knows best She always said to lie Cause the truth is a liar Now I know why she set daddy on fire Daddy had it coming Had me coming Then going before the door Answer it he said You little whore Did the Sun say hi? Or is it just standing by? Bible words Shining on the nice ones and the wicked I like that song Roller coaster of hell I wish I had a ticket Making sure all is in their place Before mother moon gives her hum The stars in the notes I remember my mother Had a headless goat I know when to say please My daddy taught me So did my mom She even said it to me Asking for that pistol thing Or is that a gun? Firecrackers were loud in our house that day It was the day they came It was the day I left
