Try to stop the distance from tearing us apart.
Been away too long and we just aren’t
From strong, to fair, to fading
No matter how much we fight for a strong love, we end up with fringes.
Try to stop the distance from tearing me apart
When we talk, its not the same
We want to fight the inevitable but sometimes the world happens without our permission
Your cold lack of interest in my life, wants and dreams
Hurts my heart, doesn’t matter if you mean it or not
You only care about yourself, I don’t care what you say
You only think of what you want, need and feel – I am an afterthought, don’t care if you deny it.
This smothering blanket of uncertainty and, and, and
You are selfish and sick, sad in the head and ill in the chest
Your only child keeps screaming out for something more
Your only wife tries hard, you just ignore.
Try to stop the distance from tearing you apart
We are all you have
You don’t love yourself
You taught me to be depressed and insecure and to not love me
Just like you don’t love you
Now I struggle with the same pain
And I hurt my partner, just as you’ve done
Thank god for reflection and change so I don’t repeat the same mistakes as the generation before.
Try to stop you from tearing me limb from limb
The mind corrupts, the body follows
The father leads, the child learns
I’ve gotten good from you but also all of the dark
Deep, lost and broken puzzle
As you fall closer into.
