"Bad Mother" as written by Andrew Cairns and Martin Mccarrick....
It's a beautiful day, but I don't see it that way
The sky's too bright for my tired eyes to take
And I wish I was home, I'm edgy, cramped and cold
Trying to keep down the things that you keep wanting to throw up
You only mean it, 'cause you look like Jesus
You really mean it, when you look like Jesus
In your retirement home, watching you wanting to die
This thing has sucked all the dignity from your life
And this used to be fun, this used to be what you want
Now its just the same as everything, you run away
You only mean it, if you look like Jesus
You really mean it, 'cause you look like Jesus
The vicious vulgar colours clash, like the twelfth day of July
Left abandoned in a field, endless wailing scaring me
I could see beyond the field, being left alone in lonely summer
I am stuck out here, waiting for you to take me home
You only mean it, if you look like Jesus
You only mean it, if you look like Jesus
You only mean it, 'cause you look like Jesus
You only mean it, 'cause you look like Jesus
You only mean it, 'cause you look like Jesus
You really mean it, 'cause you look like Jesus
You only mean it, 'cause you look like Jesus
You really mean, you really mean it, 'cause you look like Jesus
You really mean it (I'm falling), you really mean it (I'm falling)
You really mean it (I'm falling), you really mean it (I'm falling)
You really mean it (I'm falling), you really mean it (I'm falling)
You really mean it (I'm falling), you really mean it (I'm falling)
You really mean it (I'm falling), you really mean it (I'm falling)
You really mean it (I'm falling), you really mean it (I'm falling)
You really mean it (I'm falling), you really mean it (I'm falling)
You really mean it

    General CommentI really have no idea, the closest guess I can fathom is that it's about someone forced to look after an abusive/neglectful parent in their old age, torn between their desire for revenge and their 'obligations'. Course, I could be wrong. Probably am, actually.

    If anyone's wondering, the 12th of July is the Battle Of The Boyne day in Northern Ireland, a major celebration for Protestants, as it was a victory over Catholics. I assume the vicious vulgar colours clashing is a reference to the fact that, particularly in the 90s, the Protestant orangemen would celebrate by marching through areas which had high Catholic populations. If you want another reference to the Battle Of The Boyne in Therapy? lyrics, check out Potato Junkie.

    General CommentI think it might be about children from single parent families. Jesus obviously being from a single parent family.
