  • Lyrics
  • This song is about Joseph Merrick, also known as The Elephant Man, whose head was literally caving in from deformities, and was unable to sleep lying down because it could fatally injure him.
  • Last Of The Ghetto Astronauts was Good's first CD. He parted with a lot of his own money to make it. Fortunately for him, the album did well and made his investment worthwhile. >>
