Take care, take care now mother.
This tiger's been tamed with cigarettes and warm gin.
(Never have enough, never have enough)
Lets decorate the cage with blinds.
Somethings, somethings should be kept from innocent eyes.
Yeah, eyes of the beasts are hungry but so spineless.

Does it hurt when you breathe?
Do you pray in your sleep to entertain?
It's Christmas day tomorrow so I'm begging,
Please can we go to sleep, oh?

Separate the coward and the curse, you won't change.
It's not like we have anything thats left to lose.
So come on come on lets be brave.
Separate the coward and the curse, you won't change.
Say a little prayer then we'll say there's no one here to blame.

Dust here is tangled in the air.
Decorate the cage that's kept clean with blinds.
Somethings, somethings should be kept from innocent eyes.
Yeah, eyes of the beasts are hungry but so spineless.

Does it hurt when you breathe?
Do you pray in your sleep to entertain?
It's Christmas day tomorrow so I'm begging,
Please can we go to sleep, oh?

Separate the coward and the curse, you won't change.
It's not like we have anything thats left to lose.
So come on come on lets be brave.
Separate the coward and the curse, you won't change.
Say a little prayer then we'll say there's no one here to blame.

Separate from the spineless.
Separate from the spineless.

Separate the coward and the curse, you won't change.
It's not like we have anything thats left to lose.
So come on come on lets be brave.
Separate the coward and the curse, you won't change.
Say a little prayer then we'll say there's no one here to blame.

    General Commentmaybe its talking about an abusive father. And Kenny is talking to his mom about how they need to be brave in such hard times.

    Take care, take care now mother.
    This tiger's been tamed with cigarettes and warm gin.

    Separate from the spineless

    General CommentI don't know what this song means, but it has a great sound.
    It almost sounds like they broke up (or the relationship is failing), and now he finally just wants the other person to be honest. They've got nothing left to lose, and he wants her to stop being so scared/spineless and just say how she feels for once. I don't really know.

    General CommentI agree with Jon :)

    Take care, take care now mother.
    This tiger's been tamed with cigarettes and warm gin. (the father)
    (Never have enough, never have enough)
    Lets decorate the cage with blinds. (metaphor, relates to the tiger)
    Somethings, somethings should be kept from innocent eyes. (the child)
    Yeah, eyes of the beasts are hungry but so spineless. (he is probably saying that the father may be so rough and all but inside, he's not as strong as he comes off)

    Does it hurt when you breathe?
    Do you pray in your sleep to entertain?
    It's Christmas day tomorrow so I'm begging,
    Please can we go to sleep, oh?
    (this could probably be how tired the child is of all the fighting and yelling)

    Separate the coward and the curse, you won't change. (the coward - father, the curse - the mother)
    It's not like we have anything thats left to lose. (the child and mother)
    So come on come on lets be brave. (the child and mother)
    Separate the coward and the curse, you won't change.
    Say a little prayer then we'll say there's no one here to blame.

    General CommentI don't think this is about a fauther at all. I think its about a lover. and they're always doubting eachother and wanting to change whats wrong; yet nothing ever happens and they feel like they're losing eachother and hes saying be honest with me we have nothing left to lose, and if we break up theres not anyone to blame
