Now that you're feeling more than kind of blue
You'll find your heart and pull at seams some more
And as you're feeling what your daughters do
You'll point your finger still 'cause they're not you
Well your reaching for harsh words to say
as they're just pouring out
As for these points you make a pointless race
For who will make mistakes

So raise these petty stakes
With all the leaves you shake
From this family tree you branch away from me
Divide and separate
Divide and separate
Divide and separate

Well you tuck away some piece of you that someone left behind
And show some side of you
That's forcing fear and guilt and blame on me
All a misunderstanding
All this pushing and shoving
And you're intimidating
And you're contradicting yourself
Always say you're leaving
Never look where you're going
And the brances are breaking
This time you pushed too hard

So raise these petty stakes
With all the leaves you shake
From this family tree you branch away from me
Divide and separate

    General CommentI think this song is about is about a strained father daughter relationship... the family tree reference makes perfect sense this way. It's about a broken family where the father is in the wrong... a sad song
