Joey died today,
He went away,
Joey died bad,
And before he died,
He knew he was bad,

Joey died today,
He went away,
Joey died bad,
And before he died,
He knew he was dead,

Joey’s body drove off in the car,
His mother was alive,
And she was crying,
“Oh, Joey,
You betrayed us,
And you betrayed your Pa,
Oh my only darling suckled son,
Where are you now?”

Joey died today,
He went away,
Joey died bad
And before he died,
He knew he was bad,

Joey died today,
He went away,
Joey died bad,
And before he died,
He knew he was dead,

Joey’s dead body drove off in the car,
His brother was alive,
And screaming,
He said “You fucked up man,
You turned your back,
Oh Joey man, your dead again,
Your coming back,”

    My OpinionThis is a story about a dysfunctional and enabling family. Joey junks up (dies) and drives off. He knows it's bad and he knows he's dead. His mother and brother (not stoned, and thus alive) give him constant shit about his jones, but jprovide him a safe place to die anyway, ever resentful that he'll come back.
