lyrics

Respirating poison apple breath upon the steering wheel.
Fending for themselves, two lost boys by the roadside.
In the springtime of life it felt so unreal.
To be mothered by Jekyll & Hyde.

A pot of pills for dinner washed down with that old familiar venomous juice.
Charcoal for supper, needles in her hands, swallow another upper, a spectrum of abuse.

You affected my behaviour, drunk & disorderly behaviour.
I needed a saviour but nothing could save her.
Mother's nature.

A suicide note for bedtime reading.
Stomach pumped, laying slumped, barely breathing.
Mother please awaken.
What did I do to be forsaken?

The damage is done now.
Thought I could fix this somehow.
All I can do is forgive, not forget.
I tasted firewater in the womb of regret.

Acidify the polluted bowels.
Responsibility disavowed.
To ourselves we are the greatest threat.
Waking & shaking in a cold sweat.

For months he couldn't look at me.
I saw red, the moment the phone left the hook.
For years he wouldn't talk to me.
A dial tone still rings in my ears.

For a lifetime I'll wear these scars.
To wash away my fears.

Look what you've done to this family.
What would your father think?
You've made yourself an enemy.
How much further can you sink?

Tormented by cruel memories.
Clouded by pools of drink.
Fermented bullshit excuses.
Written with vomit as ink.

She loves you so love her back.
Do her final years mean jack shit to you?

Grow.

Asylum creeper, attention seeker.
I eternally pity you & protect your name.
In the name of blame we love & shame.
Mother's pain.
Mother's bane.
