"My Mother's Only Son" as written by and Simon Frank Grenehed Christian Thell Lindskog....
Talks about it all the time
It's a sickness he says
So sure all the time
He hates it
And I honestly believe him
So sure all the time

Maybe the one who screams the most
Screams about himself

Fed up of giving up
Clean cup please drink up

He sees it's eating him up
It's the price he pays
But it's not even worth a dime
So scared that people may find out
He is what he hates
So scared all the time

This is his naked inside

Piece by piece he's trying to build a ladder
For him to fall from
Every time he climbs
He condemns their actions
So that no one will suspect
That he's the victim for his own crime

This is his darkness
In which he will stand
This is his naked inside
Alone in a desert land
And I'm a coward
Shut my eyes and concentrate
On my shell, on soap and shower
Oh God how I want to tell the world
But I hesitate

So why don't I have the guts to tell you he's me?

    General CommentI am not sure, but I think this is about preaching against something that the singer himself has a problem with. No doubt we all suffer from this.' Maybe one who screams the most, screams about himself.' these words really say it.

    General Commentthis is a song about a guy who is addicted.......


    he hates this addiction so much but he cant get away from. everytime he tries to beat the addiction he ends up back where he started.
    i know many people including myself can relate to this guy.

    General Commentdon't quote me on this, but i'm pretty sure Christian wrote this song about his struggle with anorexia.

    General CommentI agree with jollyradar, and I too can relate. But it's obvious when he says 'So why don't I have the guts to tell you he's me?' that it's him he's talking about.
