The world was once seen burning in my eyes
Just as it is in yours now
A hurricane of memories put out the embers that remained
And now I’m gone
Though I’m obsolete, ill scold you even in your dreams
Rise from your sleep, boy
A myriade of maladies
Incomplete identity
Hunger for the love I never gave
Don’t think I did not hear you coming home, boy
Don’t think I did not hear you coming home, last night
I am an absent father
Glassy eyed, dormant and veiled
Father, can you hear me
My head is pounding like the wagons on a freight train
The wheels are poorly fastened and they threaten to drive of the tracks
Lead by your ever present voice
Im gonna take this fall for us
A myriade of maladies
Incomplete identity
Hunger for the love you never gave
Don’t think I did not hear you coming home, boy
Don’t think I did not hear you coming home, last night
I am an absent father
Glassy eyed, dormant and veiled
I’ve got nations blaming me for the passings of their children
I’ve been dragging ships across dry land
To fill the hole you emptied
Somewhere in you there is something belonging to me
And i don’t know how to retrieve
Don’t think I did not hear you coming home, boy
Don’t think I did not hear you coming home, last night
I am an absent father
Glassy eyed, dormant and veiled
