A mother of two sits patiently by the phone
For the eldest of two to call back home
When the phone rings she is rather quite happy
But as most stories go, this one isnt too sappy
The man on the phone says ma'am we have a problem
She talks all assertive like shes capable to solve them
The man says "Your boy is the in the hospital
He took something strange and his death is probable"
The woman sits back with her face so cold
Her pride and joy, her baby boy, was only 19 years old
"He was hanging out with some crooks doing activities untold"
The family car in a ditch, upside-down and rolled
The mother asks if her boy was in it
The man quickly replays the tale, so quick and vivid
"The boys started the night out with a couple lines
Of a powder, all white, chopped up so fine"
The mother demanded to know if her son did coke
But a solemn voice on the other end just paused and spoke
He said "ma'am its a terrible hour, four past three
He was dragged out of the car not a scratch on him very quickly"
The boys checked their texts and to themselves they read
But when the cops saw their eyes, they were quite dialated.
"Your son did some Molly, a new designer drug
Got it at a house party off of some mug"
Did his first line, started to feel great
Until he finished what was on his plate
He rolled so hard he couldnt snap out
Overdosing and dying, his friends threw a bout
Tossed him in the car, fast as a rabbit
The rest blew more to support their habit
"Halfway between Windham and Westbrook they took a mighty spin
A deer in the road is what did them in."
The mother in disbelief started to bawl
Got in the hospital room and couldnt believe what she saw
Her gift to the world was on a hospital bed
At five twenty three, the boy was pronouced dead
The scumbags he was with got off just fine
But to their suprise, they had to dress in all black, at a quarter to nine
This story doesnt end on a positive note
Like a good sailor dont put yourself in that boat
A life of crime will leave you locked up or dead
Crying in your cell, or with a noose around your head
