(I did it all for you)

She took his dentures from his mouth
And placed them in her own
Took a shovel from the shed
And then dragged him from their home
(I did it all for you.)
Left a note tacked to the door
"Paid in full" is what it said
High above I look below
And watch her slowly go
River, like magnesium
Burns

(I did it all for you)

He stuck his fingers in their backs
To count the holes he bore
Doused them all in kerosene
And moved to bolt the door

(I did it all for you)

Called his Dad and said goodbye
As his lit match hit the floor
High above I look below
And watch them slowly go
River, like magnesium
Burns

(I did it all for you)

Set his guilt before his rage
Set it like a wall
To protect what he once knew as love
But which he never knew at all
River, like magnesium
Burns

(I did it all for you)

(I did it all for you)
