Mother mother found me on her step
Gracious mother held me to her breast
Until the day I started pushin'
Too late to cry she turned away
I started pushin'
I saw no future in this lack
I started pushin' forward back

Baby brother clinging to her hair
Gracious mother pleading not another
Soul to bare he started pushin'
All my kings have fallen down
I started pushin'
Fallen heroes feed the ground
I started pushin' forward back

Falling down, now I know her
I know I'll never drown

I was pushin' forward back
