"Mother Tounge" as written by and Rick/andreone Neigher....
Mother tongue
I speak that language
There are no words
But there is meaning
My secret love song
My eyes swell
I'm free

Mother tongue
Never betrayed me
Inhale your life
One more breath
I'm dancing
Lacking wings still
I can fly from you
I could lose everything
Surrendering to you
Like praying to a god above
Who doesn't even want to know you

Mother tongue
Today I curse you
Where's my voice
Have I lost my virtue
How much more can I sacrifice for you

I could lose everything
Surrendering to you
Like praying to a god
Who doesn't even want to know you
Down on my knees for you
Your hands crawling through my hair
I forgot to be cautious here

Finally I cry I cry
I could lose everything
Surrendering to you
Like praying to a god
Who doesn't even want to know you...

    My InterpretationThis song is very sobering for me. I've taken my own spin on it, and it has helped me come to grips with my own demons, substance abuse. Drugs will always take more than you are willing to give. Thank you, Leah. I will not surrender.
