A single raindrip was not enough to quench my dying thirst
Buzzards circled overhead, alone and lost I feared the worst.
My foot tripped against a skull cradled in the desert sand
Oh, what I would give to be back in my beloved swampland!
Two rattlesnakes sniffed at me with hungry two-forked tongues
My breathing was shallow as liquid fire began to fill my lungs.
I watched as scorpions danced across my sun-baked skin
The one who finds this note please notify my next of kin.
The sun finally fell into the red-hot center of the cesspool
Oh Lord I ask of you, forgive me now, I am nothing but a fool.
I begged the moon, please release me from this prison cell
No, the lone coyote barked, you alone deserve this living hell!
To impersonate a cure, sweet delirium came to calm my choking fears
So gather them up into a bag, for what good are these hopeless tears?
Just like stinging nails my cactus bed had branded me, "accursed"
As buzzards circled overhead, I thought I heard their mournful cry...
and feared the worst...
