Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Pupils begin to observe
Watching the waste on this earth
Mamas don't love their kids like they used to
Letting them smoke their herbs
Nails bitten down to the nub
Palms light on fire as they rub
Soup never reaches its boil
Dinner ain't the only thing they spoil

[Chorus]
Let the maggots and worms infest your brains
Cut your memory off, Alzheimer's begins
Let that hell of a drug emerge in your veins
And I will claim that I love you
I am the one who birthed you

[Verse 2]
Skin tearin' down to the bone
Freckles fall off as they're told
You realize soon your identity changes
No longer the person you were
No longer the person they adore

[Chorus]
Let the maggots and worms infest your brains
Cut your memory off, Alzheimer's begins
Let that hell of a drug emerge in your veins
And I will claim that I love you
I am the one who birthed you

[Bridge]
Thank you mama for all you've done
Gave me cancer and thick black lungs
Left me rotting on the street
Rather shoot up than have food to eat

[Chorus]
Let the maggots and worms infest your brains
Cut your memory off, Alzheimer's begins
Let that hell of a drug emerge in your veins
And I will claim that I love you
I am the one who birthed you
I am the one who birthed you

[Outro]
Do-do-do-do-do-do-do
Do-do-do-do-do-do-do
Mamas don't love their kids like they used to
Letting them smoke their herbs
