Stayed in bed until cob webs grew
Couldn't fake the attitude
I don't know what gave the impression
That chemicals could cure depression

Sign of the times or a jobless wonder
Been six years since the plant went under
Children play, he gets annoyed
Tried to be a dad

It was a bad choice

Got a call from an ugly friend
The one that sold him heroin
Not an enterprising man
Played the game
Took a chance

Thirty days non stop drug running
Cops were out the pressure humming
Rotten gut and nerves undone
Those tiny veins could burst

It was a bad month

Some people are never gonna get it
His own wife found him plain pathetic
Nowhere town a nowhere place
Life below the urban pace

I'd say there's hope but that'd be lying
His death won't be worth the crying
Mother will for what she's done
Didn't raise a man

He was a bad son
