Please Don't Forget Me

from by Cigarettes and Milk



Found my father with the roaches
Found my mother in her bed
Shotgun shells along the floor
N' holes inside their heads
Wept the corner til it molded
Left the blood until it stained
Drank reckless on the porch step
As I watched their souls escape

Please don't forget me
When the pearly gates budge to let you in
Please don't let me
Find myself lost again

Found the darkness in the parking lot
Where penumbras reigned as lords
And the whores I had mistaken
As the angels of intercourse
Left the wicked to destruction
Let it sit inside my mind
Thought I could recover
Well hell I must be blind

Please don't forget me
I've nothing greater still
Please don't let me
Use my heart to kill

Let the rats run through the garbage
Saw the mother feed her face
This engine key won't ever turn
I'm better off as dead

Please don't forget me

I am a lo-fidelity musician and I am folk out of the gutter. A blueberry farmer too. ... more
