my brother died when i was twelve

my pain when i returned at twelve

they found a capsule in his head

they said thats why hes dead

can i wear the capsule on my neck

can you mother asked what the heck

we are catholics i said

we wear the cross of the dead

she said over my dead body

so what of his dead body

the memory will be heartful painful

theyll bring heartful tears a rainful 

but what of his dead body

but doesnt that hurt my body

when i wear it on my neck

what the heck

i can stop the minds pain

in my minds brain

i can join the alcoholic

in my mind its painful being catholic.
