Dreams like coins down a well
Till I realized I was dumb for believing
To the bird with no flight
The skies don't ever offer respite

So I wandered off
And went to fill the holes in my shadow
But everything costs
Proof is etched into the backs of my hands

I heard you say that you've lost
You've lost you've lost you've lost your way
But I don't think you had much to lose
That house was never built for you

And I ain't gonna hang my head for them, for them
And I ain't gonna let them paint the truth as sin
And I ain't gonna tell you it's okay when at the end of the day
You were just something they blamed

A face pressed into your hands
Couldn't tell if you were crying or laughing
They both sound the same
When you ain't got no skin in the game

So I took up the fight
And the rolling in my head was like thunder
Unti I uncurled my fists
And allowed myself to not give a damn

I heard you say that we've lost
We've lost we've lost we've lost our way
But I don't think we had much to lose
That path was never built for us

And I ain't gonna hang my head for them, for them
And I ain't gonna let them paint the truth as sin
And I ain't gonna tell you it's okay when at the end of the day
We were just something they blamed

    General Comment"This song was originally for the younger sibling in the song “Sisters.” But during the making of this album, my own family had a huge falling out that left me adopting a child and selling my home, among other events. I did not intend to work myself into this family tree so directly, but life happens. This song is now from my own point of view."
