Deer Tick - Ashamed

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

Now as she gets nearer the visions get clearer
I'll kneel and weep and I will hold her dear
Oh, if your eyes water you've got your favorite number to spin

And oh, oh
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 and now I'm smiling in my blood

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

And oh, oh
What a crying shame
A crying shame
What we became

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