The Sweetness

from by Tommy Santee Klaws

lyrics

There were flashlights shined into my eyes. They made loud demands, they nearly read me my rights. The asphault was cold beneath my naked bare feet. In a vulnerable position in the warm backseat. How do you keep your hair so neat and your eyes never fall to the floor? How do you keep your face so sweet, but your head always drags on the floor? They shut the door locked and left me there in the dark. Alone, or so I thought, but my heart beat it was not. Threw me down to the ground, where I received my new blood crown. Children, they fucked me up and slit my throat in the end. Morning came and washed the red rain right out of my front door. Ma, I miss your breath and your kiss and your sweetness I'll never forget. God, I miss your breath and your kiss and your sweetness I'll never forget. How do you keep your hair so neat and your eyes never fall to the floor? How do you keep your face so sweet, but your head always drags on the floor?
