CHARLES MANSON lyrics : "Scratching Peace Symbols In Your Tombstone"

First they made him sleep in the closet (x2)

Then they made him sleep out in the hall


When I got a little bit older


They made me sleep against the wall

Then, I was so young and tender


But now I'm oh, so big and hard


Now that I'm a little bit older

I got's ta sleep's in ma backyard



(Family)


When he was just about three


All the girls would drive to see

Who could hold him on their knee


But now its plain to see


Now that he's big and hard

He's got to stay in the back yard


He had a job and got fired


slept on the ground so hard

and I'm so sure some day


Some pretty girl will come his way


and then his mama will say,

?Boy, with girls, you don't play!?


And it's so plain to see


What his mama wants him to be

Locked up and not to be free


To play with you and me


Now I sleep out in the graveyard

Seems my mama up and died


and now I just lay around her tombstone


Scratching peace symbols in the si - - - - - - - de.



(Chorus)

I'm scratching peace symbols in your tombstone


I'm scratching peace symbols in your mind


I'd like to know how'd you get there (x2)



Can't you hear, oh can't you hear up here, as I'm

(repeat chorus)



The only thing you know is what they told you


The only thing you know is what they said

and showed you by the ashes


that all that was true and real is dead, but I'm

(repeat chorus (variation))

I'd like to know how'd you get here


I'd like to know, I'd like to know how'd you get here


My mama told me just what she said


Stay away from girls and my bed

But the woman with the thoughts is all dead


Cause there's a cloud of lead in our head


I'm scratchin' / tombstone

I'm scratching / mind
