Milling round, encroaching on
My right of way and under the battle scars of daddy’s latest lesson

Little time for intuition
Little time for cry-babies
Come on son can't you not take a joke?
More sticks and stones to break you

It's freezing in here, can't even dress yourself
Lie awake still waiting on a single bite of cherry for you
Hold it in your arms
Jeopardise what little you have
See any further than your own faults
A single bite of cherry for you
And yours is not to question

And down the road a shining haven
Rocks, slaves and ... mothers
Live around the corner from themselves
You'll never break the chain will you?

It's freezing in here, can't even dress yourself
Lie awake still waiting on a single bite of cherry for you
Hold it in your arms
Don't jeopardise what little you have
See any further than your own faults
A single bite of cherry for you
And yours is not to question

Question it all, clutch your pride and all you could ever learn
The sorrow...
No hope left for you to nurture
I just wrote the ending years ago
Way down the line

Don't you run too far away from home
Don't you trust what you have never known
Don't go far remember where you are

Remember where you are

A single bite of cherry for you (x4)

    General CommentReal lyrics:

    nearly man encroaching on my right
    of way and branding
    the battle scars of daddies latest lesson
    little time for intuition little time for crybabies
    come on son could you not take a joke
    more sticks n' stones to break you

    it's freezing in here can't even dress myself
    lie awake still waiting on your
    single bite of cherry for you
    hold it in you arms
    don't jeopardize what little you have
    see any further than you're own four walls
    and yours is not to question

    and down the road a shining haven
    rats thieves infant mothers
    live around the corner from themselves
    you'll never break that chain
    will you

    it's freezing in here can't even dress myself
    lie awake still waiting on your
    single bite of cherry for you
    hold it in you arms
    don't jeopardize what little you have
    see any further than you're own four walls
    and yours is not to question

    question at all
    clutch your pride and rot here forever
    this all will run and run
    no hope left for you to nurture
    ma just wrote the ending years ago
    way down the line
    don't you run too far away from home
    don't you trust what you have never known
    don't go far
    remember where you are
    remember where you are

    a single bite of cherry for you

    General CommentOnce again, a song about the cycle of abuse that is passed down from family members (in some cases) and needs to be broken. What does the "cherry" symbolize, though? Maybe someone is making their kid eat the cherry of a cigar as punishment for not getting dressed fast enough? Kidding (even though that's not funny). Maybe it's some UK slang.

    General Commentchambers reference states that two bites or another bite at the cherry is colloquial for an unexpected further opportunity. so i guess a single bite of cherry stands for no hope for a change.
