Drooling red from my eyes to meet the bitter
sun that shines past into light. Setting fire
to curtains in hope that you're dreaming.
Destroying the tomb of memories from your
life. In the room full of family, but couldn't
find one. In the hallways lit up brightly,
but couldn't find myself. I laid drunk on
the concrete on the day of your birth in
celebration of all you were worth.

I am my father's son.
I am no one.
I cannot love.
It's in my blood.

    My InterpretationThis song is about the bitter relationship the writer has with his father. He wants to erase the memories of his father's life because they are not happy ones. The writer passed out drunk on the streets on his father's birthday, drinking away the sorrow. The final lines admit that he is just like his father - incapable of love.
