This soul has not yet been taken
Could I request it back at once gratefully
The sky's so blue
It's an ocean
An ocean with all sorts of life in it
But me
Why did you have to go away?
Why did you have to go away?

Mother, you'd scream at the king
Like he's a servant from day one
And you created a hole in his solid stability
You knocked him clear off his limestone rocker
Now he has left all this kingdom to me
And I'm so afraid to rule alone
Now this kingdom, your closet, I’m locked in
Is now my home

Daddy, why suicide?
Why couldn't you just cry instead?
Daddy, why suicide?
Why couldn't you just cry instead?
Daddy, why suicide?
Why couldn't you just cry instead?

    General CommentWow this one's great it's so moving I'm sure this has some meaning but I cant be bothered to work it out, it's great though and moving and different to most of their stuff, I love the way they use the violin in their softer songs

    General CommentIve never heard this song but from looking at the lyrics it looks like his dad committed suicide and he wasnt ready to rule the kingdom{his household im guessing}
    pretty much his dad died and he wasnt rdy to be the man of the house
