What would you do my friend if the rope was tied and taught
Your road is comin to an end and your final fights been faught
What would you do my love with your Mama in your face
Maybe you'll give her a shove and your heart will pick ups its pace

Your heart will pick up its pace with yer Mama in yer face

So Mama, don't go, please I'm dying, I'm dying.
Oh son, I forgive you, can't you see I'm cryin, I'm cryin
But I'm here, and I won't close my eyes
I won't close my eyes boy
No no no I won't close my eyes

What does it matter Mama, this black hood isn't fake
And on the other side of it the people snarl in wait
This black hood isn't fake
And on the other side of it, Mama, the people lie in wait

So Mama, so long, now I'm leavin, stop heavin
Send in the clowns! There's nothing here for you but sadness
Times Madness
So now go, walk away, turn around, there's nothing to say
