Would he see me drop?
Would he even notice?
Would his eyes water?
Would it cure my family?
I’d do anything
Just to see her smile
Just to see her happy for once.
There was a man who cried wolf, and the wolf ate him alive.
The Crows came and cleaned his bones. and the family then died.
A mother was torn a part by her son, who couldn’t juggle blind.
I tried and tried again to tell him that it’s alright to have a seeing eye.
But I’ve got to thinking that maybe he never wanted to juggle at all-
that it’s all part of his plan to make the wolf seem at his heels
All he wanted was his mother. And all he did was bury her in the ground.
There was a man who cried wolf, and the wolf ate him alive.
The Crows came and cleaned his bones. and the family then died.
It’s a timebomb waiting to explode.
Who would contain it? Who would babysit the blind.
What if it had gone differently… would my mother have died.
What have you become?
I resent you for all that you are.
What the hell have you become?
