How to Make Strangers out of Family
Egg shells are embedded in the soles of my feet
Driven deep with the effort to stand
Break the land to stumble along its edge
Form the wedge between you and I
And I cry because it's hopeless to hope
Sit and mope over all that's lost
Know the cost of resentment, this lingering ache
One day breaks the strong bond
Our's is gone, can't you see?
Let it atrophy, let it erode
Till it broke under strain
Ached with pain from broken souls the breaking didn't bother
Miss you mother
