For you,
It's just been minutes,
For me,
It's been so long,
I've been,
Here for ages,
A thousand Years,
Alone;

And I,
Can't help but wonder,
If you,
Miss me at all,
Because I,
Think of you daily,
You're all I had,
To hold;

You see,
Though I live here,
This place,
Is not my home,
I'm just,
Stuck here,
My only friends,
Are walls;

My existence,
Is a hovel,
My sanctuary's,
A hole,
And as I,
Leave here,
I'm sucked back in,
Whole;

My wings,
Have been clipped,
So I,
Can't fly away,
My solace is found,
In knowing that,
Someday;

I will,
Leave here,
And escape this,
Solitude,
And learn,
To love myself,
Without,
Needing you.

Solitude

He skipped down the streets,
In Cincinnati,
Oh, what a normal,
Little boy;

At least that's what,
All the neighbors said,
"Look at him playing,
With his toys;"

But deep down inside,
A monster lay dormant,
Just waiting,
To attack;

And deep within,
There was an evil,
About to burst forth,
And;

Uh oh,
Little Charlie Manson,
Skipping down the street,
With a knife in his hand,
Uh oh,
Here comes,
Little Charlie Manson,
Plotting his wicked plans;

Uh oh,
Little Carlie Manson,
Manipulating,
All his friends,
Uh oh,
Looks like,
Little Charlie Manson,
Has killed again;

Writing his songs,
In Los Angeles,
Holding out hope that,
Somebody will hear;

But he knows he'll,
Never be fabulous,
And being obscure's,
His biggest fear;

And deep down inside,
The devil was whispering,
To him,
Driving him mad;

And deep within,
He know's that there's,
Only one way,
He can gain fans;

Uh oh,
Little Charlie Manson,
Skipping down the street,
With a knife in his hand,
Uh oh,
Here comes,
Little Charlie Manson,
Plotting his wicked plans;

Uh oh,
Little Carlie Manson,
Manipulating,

Uh oh,

All his friends,
Uh oh,
Looks like,

And his mother yelled,
Little Charles Manson,
I'm never letting you,
Out of my sight again.

Little Charlie Manson

I can't trust my eyes,
To see no more,
I need a doctor to,
Operate yeah;

Sedate me,
With your medicine,
Put me down,
And waste me;

Take me out,
And show me off,
Shower me with,
Love yeah;

Nothing's real,
To me no more,
So just take me out,
And shoot me;

Put me down,
I'm going rabid;

Put me down,
I'm going rabid;

Put me down,
I'm going rabid;

Put me down,
I'm going rabid;

I can't trust my ears,
To hear no more,
Only the voices,
That are spoken;

Shadows creep,
Around me and,
I've accepted that,
I'm hopeless;

I can't trust my mind,
To distinguish,
What's real,
From the dream;

And my doctor's,
Assured me,
That I'm unbalanced,
It seems;

Put me down,
I'm going rabid;

Put me down,
I'm going rabid;

Put me down,
I'm going rabid;

Put me down,
I'm going rabid;

I walk around,
Like a zombie,
My friends don't,
Recognize me;

But if I get off,
Of these pills,
I'll unleash,
What's inside me;

Put me down,
I'm going rabid;

Put me down,
I'm going rabid;

Put me down,
I'm going rabid;

Put me down,
I'm going rabid;

Put me down;

Put me down;

Put me down;

Put me down.

Oh,
My dear lass Molly,
Traveled into town,
And there in the square,
She tossed her knife down,
And then challenged Judy,
The barkeep to a duel,
"Yes ma'am," she said,
I warned you that you'd rue;"

"The day you ever crossed me,
Now prepare to die,
Dear don't be afraid,
This won't be eye for eye,"
"No," Molly said,
"Judy, this will be much worse,
I done killed my cheating husband,
And now it's the whore's turn;"

Hm, hm, hm,
Hm, hm, hm,
Hm, hm,
Hm, hm;

Hm, hm, hm,
Hm, hm, hm,
Hm, hm,
Hm, hm;

Judy stood froze,
As Molly went for the knife,
And in that moment,
Her life flashed before her eyes,
And then Judy remembered,
Something from that night,
It wasn't Molly's husband,
But his twin brother she satisfied;

But Molly was enraged,
And wouldn't hear the truth,
She stabbed Judy twice,
Then shot her once to boot,
And then to be sure,
Her vengeance was complete,
She went to her husband's brother's,
And killed him in his sleep;

Hm, hm, hm,
Hm, hm, hm,
Hm, hm,
Hm, hm;

Hm, hm, hm,
Hm, hm, hm,
Hm, hm,
Hm, hm;

My dear lass Molly,
Has a temper sure,
But I loved her,
And I'm sorry,
That she killed me;

Over my brother's whore.

My Dear Lass Molly

Early one morning,
The rain came in,
And drenched me,
To the bone;

She said,
"I've got a nice fire,
In me hearth,
If you'd come into my home;"

I said,
"I ain't got time,
To stand around,
I must get back on the road;"

"It's all I know,
Heart and soul;"

The next year,
I came back around,
And the rain,
It came again;

Torrential downpours,
From the clouds,
I needed a place,
To shelter in;

She said,
"My roof don't leak,
And my flood is dry,
If you'd like to rest;"

I said,
"Thank you miss,
I've been missing this,
Out here on the road;"

"But it's all I know,
Heart and soul;"

Though when,
The rain left,
I had to stay,
For I did fall;

Into her arms,
Now I lay,
Dry and calm,
And warm;

No more storms,
And no more rain,
Now that I'm safe,
And off the road;

I love her so,
Heart and soul.
