I bought flowers from a drifter
Cut my hand on a thorn
Straight across the fate line
I'm no palm reader but I doubt that's the sign I was looking for

A rainy night in California
Told me you fought in the war
And I'm so desperate to do the right thing
I'm not sure what that even is any more
He found a bus stop to weather the storm

I'm gonna stand up straight
I'm gonna clear my throat and speak out
Unafraid
Mom, I want you to know
I'm letting everything you taught me guide me home

Faded light from the projector
It's spitting summer out on the screen
That pool we swam in caved in years ago
We filled it up with furniture and concrete
I saw right from wrong then
The lines were simple and clean
And now the people I was taught would be heroes
Were acting like cowards, killers, and thieves
I'm losing track of who the good guys are supposed to be

I'm gonna stand up straight
I'm gonna clear my throat and speak out
Unafraid
Dad, I want you to know
I'm letting everything you taught me guide me home

Coming undone at the seams
Stress fractures and muted dreams
Oh please, undone at the seams
Stress fractures and muted dreams
Oh please, undone at the seams
Stress fractures and muted dreams
Oh

I'm gonna stand up straight
I'm gonna clear my throat and speak out
Unafraid
Mom, I want you to know
I'm letting everything you taught me guide me home

Stand up straight
I'm gonna clear my throat and speak out
Unafraid
Dad, I want you to know
I'm letting everything you taught me guide me home
