Waiting on Death Row
People coming in overalls
Taking me to the gas chamber
Scuffling of feet
They took him down the hallway
Feeling everyone's heartbeat
The central control of the soul
Batons and retro-tons
Ingrown toenails
One time all around you
All round you, bump-bump
Save my air, save my air
My air, my air
Air, water, trees
Machines eating the night
Energy moving
Nuclear fires
Burning reactors on my gate
Fires of hell are burning
Come home
Can you see
Can you say
That you say
That you really love this place?

    General CommentA poem written by Charlie Manson, hmmm... That sounds quite cool, huh?
    But seriously, I don't think that he meant it this way, by I see it as an allegory of living and dying at the same time. You know, the essence of life itself.
