"Son" as written by and Casey Blue Crescenzo....
We lay aligned
And move to disguise
With a soul below
Only the eyes above
Slowly and silently
Slip away

Sleep now in the soil
The dust in the debris
A stolen smoke assumes
Leaving the shell to atrophy
Meet with the earth
As the sober spirit sings

Leave, leave it behind
This truth is (harming you?)
Leave, leave it behind
(?)
Your life hereafter
Will cure all your troubles
And recast a history

Turn and walk away

And what of the father?
Will he (analyze?)
And what about the mother?
Will she discover the truth
Behind this life we're living

Now everything we've ever had
Is here for us
Now everything we've ever had
Is here for us

Don't worry 'bout the father
I'll take care of him
And as for the mother
She always loved her son
And you look like him

    "And what of the father?
    Will he end the lies?
    And what of the mother?
    Will she discover the truth behind
    this life we're living?

    General CommentI think you have "harming you" right, and I believe the missing line is "Set out and start anew".

    I love this song. It's so beautiful.

    Song Meaningat first I thought this was about the boy killing his father

    but it's about the boy killing off his past, morals, etc

    I'm so slow lol

    General Commentleave this truth behind

    start anew..

    This song is frustrating to interpret. As much as I would like not to believe it I think it's about this man killing his upbringing, maybe a Christian one (who's to say it was a good one.. but still somewhat sad to just throw it all away) and then start from scratch from the earth up.

    General CommentAlso "dust in the debris". In the Bible it says we come from dust (and to dust we'll return).. I think He's rejecting the truth of these notions.
