I hope you awoke to fireworks,
in the arms of a grass-stained wizard.
Because I can't bear to think that you are gone.
And somewhere in my belly my little boy is running
with unicorns and Elmo and one of Daddy's songs.

Good morning, Baby.
Why are you still sleeping?
You're a plastic boy on a plastic bed.
Why didn't they take me instead?
I like to think that you are sleeping
In a safe little blue bird's nest.
And I'll protect your memories
With the dragons in my chest.

Good night, Baby.
Daddy's going crazy.
I'm choking on my sleeping pills
And hanging from a window sill.
I like to think you're dressed up
In the beads that Momma made.
Will you be there waiting,
When they take my skin away?

    General CommentIf this song doesn't make you cry, you're en empty shell of a person. This is an amazing song, on one of the most powerful albums I've ever heard. Listening to songs like this really make you realize how trite most of today's 'sad' songs can be.

    General CommentOne of the saddest songs I have ever heard. And the out of tune piano and his crazed voice just add to the effect.

    General Commentthis whole album -- you are literally listening to a man go through the grieving process after dealing with just about the most painful thing a person can go though. At first I thought "I can't listen to this its too much" But then realized that if a person is going to share this much of his pain...well he deserves for me to listen. This song makes me cry every. single. time.
