"Smother" as written by Elena Veronica Tonra and Igor Alexandre Haefeli....
I'm wasted, losing time
I'm a foolish, fragile spine
I want all that is not mine
I want him but we're not right

In the darkness I will meet my creators
And they will all agree, that I'm a suffocator

I should go now quietly
For my bones have found a place
To lie down and sleep
Where all my layers can become reeds
All my limbs can become trees
All my children can become me
What a' mess I leave
To follow

In the darkness I will meet my creators
They will all agree, I'm a suffocator

Suffocator
Oh no
I'm sorry if I smothered you
I sometimes wish I'd stayed inside
My mother
Never to come out

    My InterpretationI feel she's talking about someone she loves but the feelings are not reciprocated. Her "creators" are her parents. In the darkness of depression and rejection, she meets with them and her parents are telling her she is giving too much of herself to someone who doesn't even appreciate her--that she needs to give this guy some space.

    I love this song so much and the most powerful part of it is in the end: She yearns to go back into her mother's womb where she was safe from the sting rejection and sorrows in life. Hence the name "Daughter."
