Lyrics
your words they kill me
as I stumble out the door
you shout get out of here
and don't come back no more
outside in sunlight
I pretend there's nothing wrong
but I am heading
for the bar and something strong
I am a boy trapped in a man's life
I hurt my kids
and I hurt my wife
where the hell do we go from here?
if I don't know where here is
how can I get to there?
if you had seen me
singing out my tribal song
you would appreciate
that sometimes I am strong
but back in that house
there is blood upon the walls
and twisted mirrors follow me
right down the hall
one sullen evening
I am weeping through the scheme
one memory comes back inside me
like a dream
my standing mother
strokes my sitting father's hair
then looks into his eyes
and sees there's no-one there
