Lyrics
I cry, but I can't buy
Your Veteran's Day poppy.
It don't get me high.
It can only make me cry.
It can never grow another
Son, like the one who warmed me my days
After rain, and warmed my breath.
My life's blood
Screamin', empty, she crys.
It don't get me high.
It can only make me cry;
Your Veteran's Day poppy.
