Do You Care – Most Likely Written Sometime Between September and November 1994 (Aged 19)

Do You Care

do you, don’t you
care for strange me
and if you had children
would you set their minds free?
your friends are in the way
are you going to hurt them?
you did that to everyone today
but i am far away and gone
so it is okay,
dig yourself your a hole
and i will carve you a gravestone
rest in peace love
sarcastic to the core
i will laugh, sat as i am by the grass
but i am not a bore
down with the lid
are you going to close the door
do you, don’t you
ever know where you are going
who you are seeing
and who you are doing
look out, fate is coming
do you know what to do
coming so fast,
going to catch hold of you

James Garratt – 1994
