Track #9 from the album Empty Through Empty Space by Jeremy Wilson released March 2014


The Day Liz Taylor Died

Abandoned to the trailer
A fool on the outside
All Bettys go to heaven
And old men off to die

Caged in the forest
A mud saloon in the dark
Scribbling on this paper
Like some freak in the park
The day Liz Taylor died

My heart was torn like thunder
And part of me fell aside
I looked at everyone different
Like I was watchin’ from outside

A movie in slow motion
A viewer from far removed
I swam with the jellyfishes
And took my seat beneath her moon
The day Liz Taylor died

I felt life so vicious
As the sounds in my head played
All the euphoric memories
Of past love and hate

The wisdom that was in me
Well I guess it showed up late
Because my poor old man got an ear full
And I stumbled at the plate
The day Liz Taylor died

The day Liz Taylor shook the earth
And went up to heaven high
The message was cemented
Clearly written in the sky

“I need time and distance”
Well I hope it’s all worthwhile
I know I’m going to miss everything about you
And I’m going to feel every mile
The day Liz Taylor died
