lyrics

Can’t Swim
She said she couldn’t give what she didn’t have. I know I need to forgive this long long past. Mother, mirror, everything you are I am too. I love you, I love you. Will you ever stop needing the proof?
* I tread water. In oceans of her pain. Most of me survives. But a lot of me can’t swim.
Don’t remember being fathered, I remember being scared. I know the key to my self loathing, it lies somewhere back there. Damaged, Jagged, I was always close to his loss of control of his rage. He taught this insanity to us.
*
We are delving down into no end. This is the loop in the void of the future the now and then. These are the wounds that have bled since all of us began. And the wounds of our makers; the pain we learn.
These are their stories, now they are mine. I swear I'll, thrive despite it. No illusion can live for all time.
Mother, Father. No more anger. Grieving and accepting, Universe I surrender.
*
