These words find there place in his song, “Lorena,”
“’Cause you can’t get away with nothing
Your conscience gonna give you away
You can’t play with fire forever
Yeah and not get burnt they say
They’re gonna put you out in the streets, Lorena
Those demons you keep locked away
All them shiny skeletons in your closet
Gonna break free and get you one day
Oh and I’d like to be there when it happens
Oh, I’ve got my own demons too you know
Oh, I’d like to be their baby
‘Cause mine got me a long time ago…”
