Mrs. Butterworth tried for the fourth time today to get her ass out of bed but I don't have to explain 'cause it's the way things go and it's the way things change, the way things are and they always stay the same. So, Mrs. Butterworth, did I mention it seems like you're dying?

When she talks to me every once in a while she tries to laugh, she tries to smile. Tries to hold back the tears, but she knows they always come. You'll die, you'll burn, you'll fry, and you'll learn you can't trust no one, that was my mistake, while everybody's fighting for their own little piece of the cake.

IT TOOK TWO YEARS, BUT SHE FINISHED IT, FINALLY IT STOOD! SHE HAD NO HOME AND YOU GOT NO JOB, FINALLY IT STOOD! MRS. BUTTERWORTH'S SHELTER, IT TOOK TWO YEARS BUT SHE FINISHED IIIIIIIT.

When she talks to me every once in a while she tries to bleed she tries to smile. Tries to hold back the tears, but she knows they always come. You'll die, you'll burn, you'll fry, and you'll learn you can't trust no one, that was my mistake, when everybody's fighting for their own little piece of the cake.

GO!

And when she's HAPPY, she'll die alone, finally she's won. She was before but no one could tell, finally she's done. Everytime I see her. It's been a sad life but can't she see

Sometimes I wonder, where could she be now? Did she make it up to heaven or is she still around me? I guess I'll never know. Is she near me, in me, for me, with me? A sad sad soul but she had to had to go, but I never really told her she was more than the world to me.

GO!

Mrs. Butterworth cried for the last time today, it was early in the morning it was only three AM. But I came so quick and I ran to her side. I barely got there quick enough to see her close her eyes(/the lights?) for the last time. So why'd you have to go away? Sometimes I wonder, where could she be now? Did she make it up to heaven or is she still around me? I guess I'll never know. Is she near me, in me, for me, with me? A sad sad soul but she had to had to go, but I never really told her she was more than the world to me.

    General CommentI finally got my hands this album today, and ill have to say, this is my favortite song on the album. I never met (so to speak) a person (kalnoky) who writes songs about anti-suicide and life lessons at the age of 15!

    Mrs butterworth is a brand of syrups and pancake mixes :P
    The bottle is 'grandma' shaped

    + Yeah, I hardly know anyone who'd even heard of tomas kalnoky or any of his bands... He's a brilliant artist and its surprising so few people listen to his music.

    General CommentThat doesn't mean there wasn't an old lady this song wasn't based on.

    General CommentIt's too bad no one knows about Kalnoky. I just love his lyrics.

    Hey, does anyone know where I could find tabs for this song? It's by far my favorite Gimp song. I can't belive a fifteen-year-old could write this stuff..

    General CommentThis song always makes me want to cry.... An old lady who hides herself away, has no family. She is hurt inside and he goes to help her... so sad...

    I love the latest Streetlight album as well. And I like the Gimp version of supernothing more than the Catch 22/Streetlight version.

    General CommentThe best part is that this song wasn't written when he was fifteen.

    It was written when he was nine.
