"Daddy's Gone" as written by and Mark/burton Linkous....
Daddy's gone
Daddy's gone to go to work today
To make a little money
He gotta get paid

Bake a cake
Bake a cake and set it on the plate
Up high where the dogs can't get it
So it don't get ate

When you lay your head
On your pillow, I'll be gone
I'll be gone
Will you breathe your dreams
To your pillow like a song

I woke up and all my yesterdays were gone
Close your eyes
Close your eyes until your dreams arrive

I keep em tied where the hounds can't get em
So they don't get ate
When you raise your head
From your pillow don't delay
'Cause people decay

When we let they rays
Of the sun help you along
I woke up and all my yesterdays were gone
I woke up and all my yesterdays were gone
I woke up and all my yesterdays were gone
I woke up and all my yesterdays were gone

    General CommentI remember listening to this about a month ago and at the lyric "When you lay your head on your pillow I'll be gone, I'll be gone", I thought, for who knows what reason, "something's not right here" and the lyrics became very dark to me (as they are I guess). and it was just a passing thought that i forgot about, but now.. :( what happened to him? this is all so messed up :|
