That old bitch pulls out her flask
Popping those pills ain't gonna learn him
Not for a twelve-year-old that's yearning, Oh no

Floodgates open to your eyes, yet you don't seem to mind
The crying of a helpless child, trampled on a shallow tide

Call him a madman
But the man was born to kill
He's the animal mother

He's been locked up for nine months now
Judge says next week they'll let him out
Jail time may not have done him in
Behind those bars the madman grins

Call him a madman
But the man was born to kill
He's the animal mother
