lyrics

Down here on my knees again
Bottle’s more empty than it’s ever been
Strung up, stressed out wondering where you’ve been
Loneliness my only friend again
Build me up to only bring me down
You were there since I was just a child
Doubting, changing- you were gone again
Left me here with this mess to tend

I’ll pick up every piece you shattered on your way out of this broken house
To your better life, with your pretty wife
Stay here in the wreckage that you’ve sewn, daddy you’re still on your own

I wonder if they’d still think you’re great
If they heard the way you cursed my mama’s name
Degrading her, with every breath you take
Your pride has been the only way
My brother’s been gone for 3 damn days
Used his last dime to numb his pain
From your unrelenting cast of shame
You still managed to share when you’re far away

I’ll pick up every piece you shattered on your way out of this broken house
To your better life, with your pretty wife
Stay here in the wreckage that you’ve sewn, daddy you’re still on your own
