"I Remember When" as written by and James Skelly....
I remember when I saw the sea freeze
But it said nothing about the birds and the bees
They were swarming around my head
You'll be better off dead

But I ain't going down like that
I ain't going down like that

'cause I'm better than him and I know where I've been
You know where God I'm bound
And I'm higher to sin but don't we all sin
If that is the truth then the truth is grim

Now it ain't easy in jail, the stories for sale
Your father has died while he's gripped for bail
He points to the west and he leaves out the rest
And wants you to be his special guest

Ooooooooooh ooooooooooh

I remember when I saw the leaves fall
I was in the woods, in a gown you wouldn't wear to the ball
Into the ditch I fly
Wanted dead or alive

But I ain't going down like that
No I ain't going down like that

'cause I'm better than him and I know where I've been
You know where god I'm bound
And I'm higher to sin but don't we all sin
If that is the truth then the truth is grim

Now it ain't easy in jail, the stories for sale
Your father has died while he's gripped for bail
He points to the west and he leaves out the rest
And wants you to be his special guest

Ooooooooooh ooooooooooh

Hi Hi Hi

'cause I'm better than him and I know where I've been
You know where god I'm bound
And I'm higher to sin but don't we all sin
If that is the truth then the truth is grim
And STOP!
