I followed her down by the railroad tracks
Waited until she couldn't turn back
Her clothes in a pile and her blood in a stream
Yeah a lullaby don't always turn to a dream

Took both her kids and put em in the garage
And took off in her car and became a mirage
Out in the desert where the air is clean
And a lullaby don't always turn to a dream

An innocent man might take the blame
I'll shave my head, and change my name

Out in the desert it's as still as death
It's as if mother nature mother nature was holding her breath
The coyotes howl and the vultures scream
And a lullaby don't always turn to a dream

I guess it started when I was a teen
And my parents will never know their little boy is such a fiend
I guess sometimes it works out, but you never know what it means
Cause a lullaby don't always turn to a dream
Naw, a lullaby don't always turn to a dream

    General CommentThe singer is commenting on the treatment he received by a woman who screamed at him, when he was just trying to get to know her. Yelled at him like he was a murderer. He was confused "What was in her mind about me, to lose it and yell at me like that? Did I really deserve that? You must be confusing me with another type of person..."


    I guess it started when I was a teen (it's natural)

    And my parents will never know their little boy is such a fiend (parents are embarrassed discussing the facts of life)

    I guess sometimes it works out, but you never know what it means
    ([insert]: freaking out and screaming)

    Cause a lullaby don't always turn to a dream
    (more freaking out and screaming)

    Naw, a lullaby don't always turn to a dream
    (confusion about the screaming reaction: as it completely kills the romance)
