Dreams of contemplation, a resignation, know what.
Useless indignation, a segregation, plant your seed.
Steamless conversation, what is happening to me.
I'm no longer your erection, or your congregation, I'm your disease.
You take the sun.
You have your fun but you better beware.
You better beware.
You broke it down.
Well, what do we have here daddy.
The lights are quickly changing.
Will I leave your heart along with the phone lines you're erasing.
A spineless ending.
Well, who would have guessed dear daddy.
Turned out to be a coward.
When I turned my back you cut my throat it bled for hours.
Was that your power.
Maybe if I liked being alone I could give you your life back and let you go.
Maybe if I got it together again I wouldn't be belligerent and such a princess.
Maybe the reason I'm so needy is because I never had real devotion.
Maybe I criticized your loyalty because it wasn't given to me.
Do you know who I am.
It's me in here with the doctor and the crowd around me.
They are my chosen family.
I guess I'm important, but what about them standing there they can't get in.
It kind of looks like we won't make it, my friend.
And it looks like you can't take it again, my friend.
And all the pretty roses wilted up and paled themselves away today.
The guillotine of truth has fallen, somehow I'm the one you blame.
This can't be happening.
Not so fast, I'm so mean.
I can't stay indifferent.
Because I know the outcome.
You were a million miles behind
And I was crying every time I'd leave you
Then I didn't want to see you
I still keep my watch two hours behind
Someone turned the lights out there in Memphis
That's where my family's buried and gone
Last time I was there I noticed a space left
Next to them there in Memphis
In the damn back lawn
Nobody Noticed It
I heard broken footsteps
Was that you limping
Well I wish I that could have spent just a little bit more time with you...yeah
Tears on my ceiling
Weren't you watching
Well I guess that none of us will ever know what comes after this
You're still lovely
You were lovely then

Lyrics by Lisa Marie Presley
This is a drag that it's too late now.
And I wanted to tell you that I was wrong.
I didn't realize I still hold on to you but I still do.
Was it that I turned everyone against you.
Was it that I didn't defend you.
Was it that I never had your back.
Was it that I was always trying to save you and you never wanted me to.
You know I did something right.
Something that keeps me alive.
Oh you sweet little babies.
When you came you let me know.
I was finally happy.
You knew me before now didn't you.
God you're so lovely.
Did you come here to help me.
And I know you can't sleep well.
Unless I'm right there next to you.
To Whom It May Concern
If you can't even stop the symptoms
Then why in the hell do you drug the children
The others can make their own decisions
And with some help from you they become dependant
You should be sorry 'cause you let them down
But you become a big part of their lives
They always trust you but they're dying out
I've seen the things you do it blows my mind
