"Sometimes It Happens Like This" as written by Michael Irving Falk, Jean Baptiste-blot, Edward Michael Rendini, Joseph Stephen Perrone and Alexander H. Cando....
Since I was a kid I've had a black cloud follow me
I need to clear my head before the ground starts to swallow me
Killed your companions then complained of loneliness
Well, sometimes it happens like this

Since I was a kid I've had a black cloud follow me
I need to clear my head before the ground starts to swallow me
Killed your companions then complained of loneliness
Well, sometimes it happens like this

Try to concede, you want what I don't need
You fled with summer's speed, most likely to succeed
You never played the lead, but starred in many downplays
Malaise infects my airways, affrays echo for days

Accumulating slow like snowfall, forestall to walk and just crawl
Enthralled to the beck and call
You ride the rails, tied my body to the track
Watched the trains run me over, never ever looking back

Staring at you teary eyed
How could he never know?
Always being pushed aside
How could he never see?
Images of patricide
That's how I always knew
Something is wrong with the way that I feel
With the way that I feel inside me

And don't try
Friend you ain't no friend to me
Defy
What you are I'll never be
Outcry
Get the fuck away from me
Faux
I'm stronger now

And don't try
Friend you ain't no friend to me
Defy
What you are I'll never be
Outcry
Get the fuck away from me
Faux
I'm stronger now

Nothing you say can heal these bruises I conceal
Apologies are like a virus and can't change the way I feel
Should I reconcile so you can smile, rebuild our rapport
So you can bait the lure for yet another whore

Stepmother, steps away from being a mother
Already got one and I love her, why the fuck I need another?
Or a father, who never bothered, why bother to exist?
Watch your sun eclipse, I wipe your name from my lips

Staring at you teary eyed
How could he never know?
Always being pushed aside
How could he never see?
Images of patricide
That's how I always knew
Something is wrong with the way that I feel
With the way that I feel inside me

And don't try
Friend you ain't no friend to me
Defy
What you are I'll never be
Outcry
Get the fuck away from me
Faux
I'm stronger now

And don't try
Friend you ain't no friend to me
Defy
What you are I'll never be
Outcry
Get the fuck away from me
Faux
I'm stronger now

Longed to be your son
Some things are never too broken to be
But you're dead in me
I longed to be your son
Some things are never too broken to be
But you're dead, you're dead

And don't try
Friend you ain't no friend to me
Defy
What you are I'll never be
Outcry
Get the fuck away from me
Faux
I'm stronger now

And don't try
Friend you ain't no friend to me
Defy
What you are I'll never be
Outcry
Get the fuck away from me
Faux
I'm stronger now

Don't try
I'm stronger now
Don't try
I'm stronger now
Don't try
I'm stronger now
Don't try
I'm stronger like I'll ever be

    General CommentObviously a deep hatred for his father. Patricide ooff thats rough. I think every break up I've had the chorus fit well for me. DWR best when loud
