lyrics

No sisters, no brothers
No mothers, no lovers
Mama used to say that the only way
Was to love in the night and day

Yes, the light might cover your face,
But darkness shines in deeper water
Even with your face down

Now that you’re all grown up
Big money, empty bottles and a full cup
I might even join the club
But only to write your wrongs

I’ll write, seventy novels on your life as it is
Heartache, neglection and it’s hard to break
I can hardly state the things that I still like about you

And off of that, I try to jump
We try to give you that bump
But you kept jumping on the crossbars
While we spent paper on a life made up

We don’t need no people to tell us what to think
know, wish, do, we can build our own empire
We don’t need no people to tell us what to think
know, wish, do, real family will takes us higher

No-one seems to bother, as I slide through caves of eternal sorrow
I can’t summon the spirit of my significant other
I have no brothers

The madhouse that we call home is populated by the so-called
warriors of innocent minds and one day we will find that those
who faught for glory will be the death of our own human kind
No-one is kind

How do we teach our kids if all we know is being tought?
Being tought by the hands of our parents and creators
Being tought by those who claim not to be the purpetrators
Stay inside, where you’ll hide the fact that art is not your best wife
While we’re watching stars you’re looking straight into the sun, son

We don’t need no people to tell us what to think
Know, wish, do, we can build our own empire
We don’t need no people to tell us what to think
Know, wish, do, real family will takes us higher
