girl scattered
ripped to pieces by her brother's murder
one thought too many
one thought too much
her gentle levy burst

lives with her mother in a basement
with their seventeen years of blame
can't stop the knawing
"I should have's" clawing
it is the circle of her pain

breathe deeply
you're not alone
breathe deeply now
breathe deeply
he's safe with god
rest your head now

she has no father, no hero husband
to help her gather her ends
so she imagines the dj loves her
lives for the music he spins
radio humming, two fingers drumming
over the red scar bracelet she once made
her mind keeps playing her brother's slaying
and she's scattering once again

breathe deeply
you're not alone
breathe deeply now
breathe deeply
he's safe with god
rest your head now

she says, "I dream, i dream about him
he is lost and all alone
how can I sleep until i free him?"
she keeps stumbling under the weight of his ghost

breathe deeply
you're not alone
breathe deeply now
breathe deeply
he's safe with god
rest your head now

breathe deeply
you're not alone
breathe deeply now
breathe deeply
he's safe with god
rest your head now
