It’s been fifteen years since I killed Ed Child,
Fifteen years since that day in the wild

He ran away through the forest, and I ran in chase,
And then I put a bullet through his pleading face

As I buried him I knew I’d done a mortal sin,
His accusing gaze told me heaven won’t let me in

I could tell you my reasons,
Maybe you’d see,
But I think more than likely you’d disagree with me

Don’t think I went without punishment,
It didn’t go away,
For 15 years later, he still haunts me this day

He’s standing here now, right outside my door,
Oh Jesus, oh God, I can’t take anymore!
