We wrote and composed this song in under a week. This is a story about a parent talking to their daughter in desperation. We did our best to portray the harsh realities of life and the attempt to explain it's chaos. Trying to teach a lesson in life to anyone who looks up to you can be extremely difficult and frustrating at times. All at once it becomes too much, and we begin to realize everyone needs to find their own way.
Tears fall from my eyes,
as i contemplate these lies
the things we've said an done,
life was on the run.
Sonder is our fate,
as we try to regulate
the emotions in our head,
we are living half dead.
Time it never waits (ahh)
spring it hesitates, winter seems to stay
when your mind it lays at bay (ahh)
Ignorance is bliss,
but it was only just a kiss
how could it of come to this,
there's something i must have missed.
Hush little baby, daddy's still here,
trust in my words, even when you fear...
Hush little baby, don't say a word,
daddy's going to buy you a mocking bird
and a diamond ring...
In times of trouble, listen to my voice
the world will bring you down, its just noise
don't let them...
Tears fall from the skies some call it rain,
I call em lies, but whose there to blame,
Drive you insane if you let it, but you wont, you cant,
my rant someday you'll understand,
All the problems we have.
All i ever wanted was to be a good dad...
The things I've done, the mistakes I made,
don't let them tell you it's about the grade.
An A plus, a B plus, but now you see,
they got you in a system still you don't believe.
