lyrics

Her son was raised by sitcoms,
Her daughter brought up in a Disney fantasy world
Father’s on to a new one,
Mothers secrets they pound at the back of her lips.

Her daughter’s getting lonely,
No time to think of the reasons we act in spite
Down for generations,
She’s finding the secrets they pound at the back of…

Her dreams were so much better.
She could pretend to be anything,
We can’t be all but empty faces,
Pretending we’re anything but
What our parents have been

He’s prone to advertising
Despite the fact that he hasn’t bought anything.
He’ll man up with a pitcher,
He’s coming back home now
His hands tightly balled up as…

Fists are so much better
He can pretend to be anything
But he can’t be all but empty cases,
Pretending he’s anything but
What his parents have been.

Mothers nest has depleted,
That’s not to say she was raising them anyway.
None-the-less she feels empty,
She’s screaming her secrets
They’ve blown out the back of her lips.
