  • Lyrics: I remember thinking, even when I’s just a child That my eyes seemed darker and my heart was cold and wild I looked to my brother and saw what I lack It cuts me to the bone like the battle’s fiery flak My gift just won’t do You want what he’s got don’t you I can see it in your eyes Fear where love should reside But black is the day When I sent to the grave The light of my family name I love my father as much as I can I hate my mother for the darkness she passed down When I can’t sleep I walk into town Where I see an evil circus with shadows for clowns People come undone before me like poorly bound books Unwrapping under my gaze and fraying while I look I press them and test them and use them for laughs But I don’t find it funny though it helps the time pass My gift just won’t do You want what he’s got don’t you I can see it in your eyes Fear where love should reside But black is the day When I sent to the grave The light of my family name When silence creeps in liquid darkness fills my head And jealous thoughts come rapid fire filling my stomach with lead I drive you down to your knees to show myself I’m a man But I just broke your spirit and I’ve got your blood on my hands I feel a lot of regret but not quite enough After giving all I knew to give I still got treated so rough My heart keeps on beating long after memories fade I still don’t like to see myself it reminds me of your grave Brother stand beside me Brother forgive my darkest deeds Father am I destined to lose Father can’t I choose Chorus I’ve been haunted by the notion that we’re all on some set track Forced and trapped in our bodies like some twisted heart attack But knowing is not forcing me to react And the pathway is not hidden and the love is not abstract
