lyrics

To my credit I can't help my situation
To my mother I send this lonely invitation
No matter the streets I've roamed, I wanna be back home
Please don't think on the wretched things I've done

You see, it don't seem that I've got too much time
I recognize the years you ain't been on my mind.
But I'll make it through that door, though my back and legs are sore
And all I'm bringin’ is the ragged clothes I wore

Mother, I know it’s five years since you've gone
Mother, I know that I'm your only son
I still feel the love you gave
It's been floating in the waste
I'll bring it back, though it may be from my grave

It's taken all this to know I've let you down
It's taken all this to get my feet close to the ground
Though I still deny the news
I'll come crawling home to you
I'll get there with the blood that's in my shoes

There's blackened dust on the walls in here
In my cell thinkin’ all my fears are gone
Devil, spare me just one day?
Will you lend me just a single way to mourn?

It's morning time when they'll shave off all my hair.
Morning time when they'll lay me in that chair
Please hold the gates for me
When they cut me free
Out into that black and raging sea
