What Went Wrong
< ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------->
Hear what I say
The situation was a love gone bad
Left her cold naked on a rainy day
He pulled in the driveway
Two o'clock with the gun that he shot
Ran to the front door, hid it under tiled floor
He heard the sirens far away
Cocked the one that he used on his son
Feeling kinda sorry for the things that he's done

Her earrings float away
Her body's pale and grey
But Momma will not call
And children will not crawl
Her earrings float away
Her body's pale and grey
But Momma will not call
And children will not crawl

Lights around the block
Tiptoe to the bathroom door
Barefoot, naked, see her body on the floor
You go ahead and cry some more
The little girl with her eyes so sore
Cries out, "Daddy, I don't want to leave this world"
He hears the angels scream, he says
"Would you open up your wings
Don't let her breathe
Cause if it's all a dream," he says
"Pinch me, wake me, shake me
But take me somewhere I can't see"

And take the blood on my shirt and shoes
And tell me what went wrong
I want to see you cry, I want to see you cry
And take the blood on my shirt and shoes
No no no no no no no no, no, no, no
I want to see you cry

So now it's over
It's geting hard to shake
Three dead as he lays in his bed
Open blinds, sees the light, now he's awake
There's so much his heart can take
As sweat bleeds in the pores of his face
Then she rises, just to ask if he's OK
She's blue-eyed and open wide
He cried out, "I love you" as the sun did hit the sky
He picked up his little girl
Said "goodbye" as he looks in her eye
"And don't worry, baby, dream of bright blue skies"

Take the blood on my shirt and shoes
And tell me what went wrong
I want to see you cry, I want to see you cry
And take the blood on my shirt and shoes
No no no no no no no no, no, no, no
I want to see you cry
I want to see you cry
I want to see you cry
I want to see you cry
Cry
"All right, this next song is pretty strange.  It's about a dream I had.  Don't think I'm awkward or anything, but it's about a normal guy who ends up slaying his family.  It's pretty strange...'woo'? what the hell was that?  I had this awful dream one night, and I just thought I would make it into a song.  Funny thing is, a week after I wrote it, it happened in Keaton.  A gentleman drove into Weimer, Texas, and jumped in front of a diesel after he'd done it."

"So, awhile back I called my mom at work and I was like...Mom, I don't understand, but I just wrote this really crazy song.  And it's about this dude who...nevermind.  But it's this crazy song, and I explained the subject matter to her.  And she's kinda freaked out, she was like "how the hell did you get that in your head?"  But anyway, it's a typical song about a normal man just one day snapping...things just not right up here.  Ends up...anyway.  This song's called What Went Wrong."
