you've taken all that you could get
you're grinning like a fugitive
and everything's been going right for you
you drag me by the collar
been dancing like a liar
I follow in your empty footsteps
you're never gonna put the blood back wherever it came from
you're sleeping like a baby (x4)
right before my very eyes
the pride and the vanity
the blank cheques for sympathy
you're sleeping like a baby
it doesn't matter what you do
there's one thing you know is true
you're so unlike everyone like you
you're sleeping like a baby (x3)
the kids will get the money (x3)
right before your very eyes (x3)
the kids will get the money (x2)
the kids will...

    My InterpretationWarning: Face Value Interpretation.

    One of the narrator's parents, who was a destructive and manipulative force on those around them in order to satisfy their own wants, passes away. The narrator looks back on their parent's behaviour and laments that they couldn't see the error of their selfish ways because they were so wrapped up in their narcissism. The narrator also implies that their parent's personality has rubbed off on all their offspring, including the narrator himself.
