If you see me down the street and I forget to smile
Don't go feeling bad for me or stop and ask me why
Reasons that I cannot speak, the truth is deep inside
Of all the secrets that I keep, there's one that I can't hide

The woman that was troubling me and banging on the wall
Has gone to rest eternally, no trouble anymore
I placed a pillow on her face, while she was asleep
And held it down till she lay still and no more will she weep

Though you may abandon me, I won't desert you now
Already I can feel the heat, the word is almost out
I murdered my poor neighbour, regret what I have done
Cos if I had that time again, I would've used a gun

Ashes scattered in the wind don't ease a worried mind
Cos images and memories are never far behind
