Copper on the corner and he loaded two rounds
And I can't cross the line to talk you down
And Peter, sweet baby, where'd you get that gun?
You spend half your life trying to turn the other half around

And I tried to come clean, but I guess its no use
Your face is all over the six o'clock news
They cleared the streets and then they closed the schools
I can't even get inside

Did you lose your head when the FARM went down?
or was it when your daddy died after he moved to town
And I know your mama calls you good for nothin'
She says her baby is a Failer and she don't want you callin'


And I tried to come clean, but I guess its no use
Your face is all over the six o'clock news
They cleared the streets and then they closed the schools
I can't even get inside

and Peter, sweet baby, there's just something that I gotta say to you
I'm gonna have your baby this coming June
We could get a little place down by Gilmour Park
You could do a little time and save my broken heart

And I tried to come clean, but I guess its no use
Your face is all over the six o'clock news
They cleared the streets and then they closed the schools
I can't even get inside

I tried to come clean, but I guess its no use
Copper went ahead and he just shot you through
Now you're lying dead on the avenue
I can't feel my broken heart

And I can't feel my broken heart
