    WITH MY EYES CLOSED
    AND
    MY MIND OPEN
    I BRING THIS


    MET HER ON THURSDAY
    HER WORST DAY
    MY BIRTHDAY
    BABIES FIRST WORDS
    GIVE ME SOMETHING
    I CAN TASTE WHO REALLY NEEDS MILK
    WORDS HIDDEN DEEP WITHIN THE BLOOD OF HIS BODY
    HIS LIFE BEGIN
    SOON OPENING HIS EYES UP
    TO TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT HIS ONLY FRIEND
    HIS EARS SOON LAY TRANSLATED INTO
    HER WORDS
    HEARD SWEET WORDS WHEN MOMMA USE TO SAY
    SHE WOULD RETURN
    ON OUR LOST DAYS
    DIDNT ANTICIPATE
    JUST LIKE THAT BLANK SPACE MOMMA WAS TAKEN AWAY

    SO AFRAID I WOULDNT LISTEN
    MOMMA WAS GOOD
    MOMMA WAS EVERYTHING
    MOMMA WAS LIVING FOR THE WRONG REASONS
    HER LIFE NOT FUFILLED
    BUT HER
    LIFESTYLE
    A LITTLE LESS THAN HONORABLE MENTION
    BUT SHE STUCK
    TO THIS WORLD LIKE GRITS
    HOME MADE GRITS
    TOPPED WITH GOLDEN BUTTER
    AND WHEN THINGS GREW THICK
    SHE WOULD JUST HUMMM
    THE ONLY WAY SHE KNEW HOW
    TO GET THROUGH IT
    SOME UNKNOWN SONG
    THE PROVERTY
    I WITNESSED FROM MUSIC
    THOSE SOUNDS USE TO MOVE SO SWIFT THROUGH
    MY HEART
    BUT NOW MOMMA IS GONE
    AND
    I GOT TO KEEP ON
    LEFT
    BUT NOT A LONE
    WHO WOULD EVER IMAGINE
    THAT
    THE ALCOHOL
    WOULD TEAR US APART
    SIX KIDS CRYING FOR MOMMA
    SHE TRIED HER HARDEST
    TO PLAY HER PART

    THIS IS SHEET METAL
    FOR ME TO KEEP
    SHEET METAL MUSIC
    ON
    A BLANK SHEET
    BLACK MAN YOURE SO INTELLIGENT WISE AND SWEET
    SWEETER THAN DARK CHOCOLATE
    AND TO MY SISTAS MOMMA SAID THIS
    BE A WOMAN
    ALWAYS BE A WOMAN YOU STRAWBERRY QUEEN
    MOMMA USED EVERYTHING IN HER POWER
    MADE LOVE FROM BROKEN HUGS
    AND
    DADDY FREQUENT HITS
    SEEN HER CRY SHEET METAL
    FEAUTRING THAT BASTARD ON EVERY
    TRACK
    INFACT MOMMA NEEDED HELP
    TO TOUCH THIS OLE SKIN OF MINE
    INDEED
    NOW THE FLOWERS ON HER GRAVE SITE
    WAIT FOR HER TO RETURN
    MY WATER
    THE ONLY WATER
    I EVER KNEW SHE WASNT PERFECT
    BUT SHE WAS CONVIENT
    CONVIENT FOR BEING A MOTHER
    A TEACHER A FRIEND
    A LOVER A WOMAN
    CONVIENT FOR STAYING BY MY SIDE
    INDEED THOSE FLOWERS SING JAZZ
    HUMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM
    SWEET JAZZ
    THE SONG OF HER LIFE
    AND IF MOMMA WASNT AS GOOD AS THEY SAY SHE WAS
    THEN WHY AM I STILL HERE
    GIVING YOU THIS SHEET METAL
    TODAY I REALIZED
    MOMMA DID HER BEST
