i owe you a love song
for all that i done wrong
don't worry about the long haul
the first time is hard
i'll help you make the short jump
you won't be here long
you know that we'll find a way

i owe you a love song
for all that i done wrong
just hop the gate, son
all cons love their moms
when you hear the dogs howl
suck a reed in the swamp
lie in the weeds and wait....


You'll be long gone,
I'll be waiting son

    General CommentThis song is a sequel to "Point and Click."

    The first song was the text of a note left behind by a parent who was preparing to go out on a murder spree. This song takes place after the son has followed in the parent's footsteps and is preparing to elude capture or escape from prison (probably the latter).

    The voice of the parent in this song is essentially an inner voice that the son uses to get him through his rather troubled path. Think Norman Bates.

    Speaking of Norman Bates, "all cons love their moms" is the first indication we've had of the parent's gender. I had always assumed that "Point and Click" was from the point of view of a father, but that little clue hints that this is not the case.

    Man I hope these lyrics are incorrect cause that kinda sucks Mr. Patton, I expect better from you >_>

    Other than that, love the feel to this song.
