lyrics

in time you’ll feel important
a crooked smile with rotting teeth
you won’t forget the soft, sad silence
cause when you’re home you hardly speak
you hardly speak

you saw a silo sanctuary
fed a famished heart to beat
lost your languished love to science
now when he’s home you hardly sleep

no more dreaming of the typical
late born daughter of a criminal
your lack of empathy is so complete
stripped bare you’re a blatant obscenity to me

you swore a likeness
to anything but your father’s wealth
an outdated ideal
form of nothing but a calculated symmetry
jeweled indictment for a soulless incredulity

so take your time
signing self loathing to a greeting card
capital gains to your bed
your father’s crime
is not transcendent, or ruthless
or breaking the blood in your head

no more dreaming of the typical
late born daughter of a criminal
your lack of empathy is so complete
stripped bare you’re a blatant obscenity to me
no more pity for the miserable
blood-torn victim of the natural
misguided sympathy bars extremes
stripped bare you’re a vacant identity
to me
