"Family Tree" as written by and Sandro Perri....
Though devotion is gone
It lingers on
As you can't break a bond so long
And, in the meantime
You get clean
As you take your time
Tracing the bloodline
Through flesh on the vine

Under the family tree
Beyond the leaves you can't see (and how unwillingly)
You let your seeds grow
There they go
Leaving you to sow
Bereft are your leaves
Beset with weeds

And, in your descendancy
Define a picture of needs
That should never have been
No, they should not
'Cause it was not created for you
To empty your blood upon
You got your own

I feel empty
As I see I'm not much farther
You run for cover with the island daughter
Here in your mirror, we're getting smaller
And it's healthy (healthy)
But it's killing me to bother
You are full of the feathers of a father
A sister, brother
Now me, your mother
