SWEET GENE

Saw you there, shorn of hair
long gone look in your eye ­­­­­­­­­­­­­
which one of us, has lost touch
both of us could be insane

I knew you, I loved you, you were mine
I held you, I saw you, on the day that you were born
too far gone to get involved
there are things that will never be resolved

You're out there, i've seen you, a living ghost
drifting through a crowd, with your insides hanging out

There is a version of you in my memory
where kindness kills off every cruelty
there is a version of you
that will always be mine

I loved you, and I knew,
something was wrong
you lashed out at nothing
restless, since you were born

There’s a version of you in my memory
that will always be my sweet Gene
there’s a version of you in my memory
where kindness kills off every cruelty
you’ll always be my sweet Gene
