lyrics

As we lay her soul to sleep
We wish for him to come complete
As he carries out her life on earth
Walking proudly cause you gave him birth
2X

She left this world the same way that she came,
Weathered and weak and no control of the day
Life slipped through the moist grip of her womanly hands
And failed to hold on for her third second chance
Infestation started from the breast
Grasped on to the soul and multiplied as a test
For individuals who surrounded her life force
Stand up or be swallowed by the hurricanes course
As she drifted away, the kids drifted away
The pain overloaded and the ship sailed away
Navigation from the captain, what happened
Now the troops rome alone for the snatching
Unable to control from the lost essence,
Asked questions why she left him with etchings
Of blessings and understandings and meanings
Of life or self control to help with his breathing…

As we lay her soul to sleep
We wish for him to come complete
As he carries out her life on earth
Walking proudly cause you gave him birth

Vanishing with out a proper good bye from the middle
Holding on to resentment he felt so little
Conquering every obstacle routed in her path
He looked up to her for the strength that he lacked
Watching this hero dissolve from disease
He walked away freely but begged on his knees
Taken respected mechanism to which to battle
Bumped heads with this shark to make this cage rattle
Similar in bite and the bark for which he knew
It’s that very understanding that made the grief true
Reconciled after years of departures and feuds
The one with many names now has taken his muse
Inner conflict, or conscience which ever
Berried emotional passages to endeavor
Life has passed away and life is now
The only chore left is to make his mom proud
He saw the being of life and what to pursue
Slip away from the cancer how can it be true
She was him, her other son and her daughter by the same
Maiden name for original kin which she came
He fought not break down fought not to frown
Fought to keep his head from pulling him deep into the ground
But no matter what he did it ended the damn same
There wasn’t adequate bottles to smother the pain.

As we lay her soul to sleep
We wish for him to come complete
As he carries out her life on earth
Walking proudly cause you gave him birth
2X
