'Rest Home' written and recorded by Elliot Brown.

lyrics

Stuck in a rest home.
How could they do this to me?

When I was a young man I set up a whole plan
I flew on over the sea,
Had lots of children, where have all of them gone?
How could they do this to me?

Never had money, I raised them best as I could,
Never had much on the tree,
But I remember their first years, I remember the tears that I dried,
How could they do this to me?

I don't want someone to feed me, I want someone who needs me,
The people who once needed me,
My memory ain't what it was, but I ain't forgotten.
How could they do this to me?

They say we'd like it much better, all boxed in together,
A thousand old people and me,
Pretend like we're family, or sit by the fishbowl,
How could they do this to me?

I won't tell you stories, I don't want to bore you,
Things that I've seen and I've done,
So I'll keep it a secret, they can bury me with it,
How could they do this to anyone?

And when I die they'll all come out of nowhere,
To fight over my legacy,
Fight over pictures and steal the piano,
How could they do this to me?

Stuck in a rest home.
How could they do this to me?
