We were all together in the pouring rain. Solvents being passed around to dull the pain. The air was choked with the dismal smell. The reek of sadness and despair. Minds fucked up beyond repair. She said she just turned six. She’s got some good jokes for a kid. She’s working hard to avoid a woman bleeding from her teeth. Her life goes on despite the fact her mom sleeps fucked up on the cement. She flashed a look, an image burnt into my mind. I know that sinking feeling all too fucking well. Shame, frustration setting in. Confusion that burns us inside out. “I don’t know what’s wrong with me. I don’t know why she can’t wake up.” Her life goes on despite the fact. Her mom lays fucked up on the cement.It’s an ugly fucking world.

    General CommentI think its about a girl who's home life is fucked up due to drugs. She avoids a woman with bleeding gums, aka a meth addict. Her mom is always passed out on the cement, and now she won't wake up. The girl then begins to blame herself for her mom's problems, which is common in fucked up households where the parents cant accept its their fault the family is messed up because of them, so they put the blame on their kids. Pretty sad song.
