say no way
we won't let them grow up that way
things have changed
but some things have stayed the same
hold on what you want to
but some things are passed down anyway
hold on to what i want to
i don't think i know what i just

leave me without a God without belief without a cause
without a path that i should take
without a choice that a should make
such an easy thought and now i had it but i lost it
i guess i need your help and now i
guess i need your help and now i

say no way
don't let things go on this way
a clean slate
but it don't work that way
hold on to what you want to
but some things are passed down anyway
hold on to what i want to
i will have to own what i have

it's not my stuff it's just too much
it's just my stuff it's just my

    General CommentI think if anything that this song is like for her mom and telling her that she is gay. It's her stuff and her problem and she should deal with it on her own. And the whole thing about God is about how Carrie is Jewish and it must have been harder for her parents to be okay with her lifestyle. And I also think the whole idea that religion implies about being gay must be hard and that's why she says I guess I need your help now like as though she is not even sure if what she is doing or if even who she is, is the right person. So far I have only listened to their first three albums and I am trying to get along to listen to the others. But they are amazing. I have been listening to them straight almost religously for a month now.
