Rose my hand an itch to satisfy but my hands had changed shape into a knife
Abigail in a dream with a sheath coming to save me

Don't cry for me
(Begging you to stop momma's crying on the floor)
It's just what it takes
(We are the wretched that keep our fists closed)
to be happy
(Swear to god I'll never be like him)
Or to not feel so alone
(Swear to god I'll never be like him)

Had a little jar he'd keep the new and dead ants in
shake that shit and pout, "do something stupid thing, do something at all"
never seems like a fair fight
daddy's one to his son's every third stride
not coming home tonight, I'm not coming home

Don't cry for me
(Begging you to stop momma's crying on the floor)
It's just what it takes
(We are the wretched that keep our fists closed)
to be happy
(Swear to god I'll never be like him)
Or to not feel so alone
(Swear to god I'll never be like him)

    General Commenti love when they preform this live, and they get the crowd to sing the "don't cry for me" part. it makes you feel really good for some reason.

    we will miss you much, seth
