All the Other Families


Mother and father
I’ve known the lies you’ve been saying to me
I’m ready for the future
So do your act
Like all the other families
This shit has been going on for way to long
So now its time to move on
Get off your asses
And do your act
Like all the other families
Last night I did some weed
It’s my only way out of your fantasy
Like all the other times I’m not home
I wish you would stop wasting your time
And resolve these issues
Like all the other families
Everyone makes decisions
And now its your turn
So stop hiding your lies
Confess your lies
So I will not have to die of your own decency
Everyone has there problems
But not as bad as you do
So break out of your guilt
And tell me the truth
Like all the other families
(tell me tell me)

Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
