Lyrics

Thereís a black cloud overhead
Thatís me
And the poison ivy chokes the tree
Again itís me
Iím the filthy one on Bourbon Street you walk on by
Iím the little boy that pushes hard and makes it cry

Thereís a dirty needle in your child
Stick me
Empty bottles still in hand, still dead
Still me
Iím the suit and tie that bleeds the street and still wants more
Iím the forty-five thatís in your mouth, Iím a dirty, dirty whore

Look, itís me
The one who canít be free
Much too young to focus
But too old to see

Hey, look, itís me
What no one wants to see
See what you brought this world
Just what you want to see
Hey, Ma
Hey, Mom! Look, itís me

And he wants to be called ďFatherĒ now
Me again, me
The marks inside your arms spell me
Spell only me
Iím the nothing face that plants the bomb and strolls away
Iím the one who doesnít look quite right as children play

Look, itís me
The one who canít be free
Much too young to focus
But too old to see

Hey, look, itís me
What no one wants to see
See what you brought this world
Just what you want you want to see
Hey, Ma
Hey, Ma! Look, itís me

Look up to me,
What to be and what to fear
Look up to me
Look, itís me. Like what you hear?
See right through me
See the one who canít be free
See right through me
Look, itís me, what no one wants to see

Now see the black cloud up ahead
Thatís me
And this poison ivy chokes the tree
Again itís me
And Iím the filthy one on Bourbon Street you walk on by
Iím the little boy that pushes, pushes, makes it cry

Look, itís me
The one who canít be free
Much too young to focus
But too old to see

Hey, look, itís me
What no one wants to see
See what you brought this world
Just what you want to see
Hey, Ma
Hey, Ma! Look, itís me

Hey, Ma
Hey, Ma! Look, itís me
