Sixteen days without a word
If she was alright I think I would have heard
She had no reason to have run away
No, we never fought, I don't care what the neighbors say
There was just the two of us, we lived alone
A third on the way to make our house a home
We had plans to marry come spring
As soon as I could afford to buy the ring
Ah, ah, ah, ah
Oh Mary, Mary, where are you know?
This place seems so empty without you somehow
If something I said or did made you go
I would have stopped, if you'd just let me know
That cruddy job, I couldn't handle it
Getting twenty bucks a day to clean up other people's shit
And all you're crying when you felt the pain
I couldn't take take the pressure
I can't take the pressure
Oh, it's going to my head
Oh Mary, Mary, tell me, are you dead? Are you dead?
Is it just me or is it hot in here?
That night for me just isn't very clear
I was out tying one on with the guys
They'll vouch for me, they'll be my alibis
When I got home I heard the silence crack
Voices in my head, talking behind my back
They laughed and laughed as I struck her to the ground
But when her head hit the floor, they didn't make a sound
Alright I killed her, now my secret's out
My hands are red and I just can't wash it out
Oh Mary, Mary, tell me, are you dead?
I can't hear a thing with all the voices in my head
