I Heard Her Call My Name lyrics

Here it comes the count-down
It's gone gone, baby
Got my eyes wide open
Ever since I was crippled on Monday,
Got my eyeballs on my knees, a baby-walking
I rapped for hours with Mad Mary Williams,
She said she never understood a word from me because
I know she cares about me
I heard her call my name
I know she's long dead and gone
Still it ain't the same
When I woke up in the morning, mama
I heard her call my name
I know she's dead and long, long gone
I heard her call my name
And The I felt my mind split open
