lyrics

fucked up again last night
helter skelter on my radio
slept in my truck last night
and woke up to this cop knockin on my window

i tied up this waitress
in a hotel room in texas
to what used to be the luggage stand
the metal thing with four black bands
i scratched a peace sign in the skin of her back...

gone... long gone

how to wear my fear so well
a little trick i learned in jail
and the picture that burned in my head
was you sleeping in my bed
i don't know why i killed that girl...

gone... long gone
well my old man looked like santa claus
to me when i was small
i was four he left to save the wicked world
with god and alcohol
i hate that man that doesn't even know
his only son is gone...

strap me to the killing chair
eyes wide open i can't see
how all the power in the world
will burn this badness out of me

gone... long gone

about

Rob Lamothe Ontario

The Toronto Star says I am ‘a mercurial artist who slides effortlessly from rustic roots music to soulful country pop to full-blown rock balladry’. Works for me!
