Into planet Earth...

Tread your steps carefully
For the ground can twist and turn

Tread your steps carefully
For the ground may twist and turn
Choose your friends wisely
For just when you think you know someone
They could abandon you with scorn
Oh little one

Your mother will hold you in her arms
Your father will teach you his dignity and shun

Welcome to planet hate, to this emotion that I berate
Yet some people force me to feed my violent seed
What have we become, the damage remains and cannot be undone
Oh little one
Your brother may stab you in the back and laugh
Your sister will love you unconditionally as all love should be

What have we become, the damage remains and cannot be undone

Stare into the sky with newborn perfect eyes oh little one enjoy your time
There will be heartache there will be rain and joy I can't explain
My precious little one explore your time

Your mother will hold you in her arms
Your father will teach you his dignity and shun

    General CommentAbout the pain and joy of having a child. We've fucked this world beyond repair, and our children will inherit it. And yet he feels joy he can't explain.

    My InterpretationSeems kind of specific to be about a newborn, maybe he is looking at one of his baby pictures, but either way he is reflecting on his life in this song. the friend who abandoned him is the girl from Dreaming Neon Black I presume, and he wrote a song about his brother on his solo cd. Truly an amazing song!
