Zachery Say

Edbo 1967 (Hospital)



And I heard Zachery say
Daddy do you think you'll ever come home
Ya know it sure sounds ok
But I really don't think so

And I used to believe in miracles
Now I don't believe in shit

The love you offered
I just could not accommodate

Diseased by the madness
I just can't let go

And things can get so crazy
when you're all alone

By the times things change
you've forgotten that you're on your own
No longer living with the sane
But a product of the jungles that you roam
