lyrics

Mother
I did everything you asked
I did everything to be a good son
Mother
I didn't cheat
I didn't steal
Kept my feet on the ground
within the bounds
even when they pushed me around
Mother
Are you in Heave or in Hell?
Jess is half alive at 25
You missed his birthday again

As I bow to the beast that conjures me
Opium in the air can't hide the graveyard smell in your hair
God is that you?
Do you count in two's?
Would you come through?
When I hear her say,
"Do it the right way."
"Do what I say."
But I can't and I won't and I can't and I won't
be the Good son.
be the Good son.


So I take what I want
and I get what I need
People listen to me
'Cause I push back
and I push back
I don't listen to you anymore
your ghost won't come through the door
And I push back
and I push back
Mother I push back

Like a good son I obeyed you
Like a good son I'll betray you
Like a good son I denied you
Like a good son I could kill you
Mother I forgive you
Mother I did it all by myself
Mother I could kill you

Give me time
the wall will fall
Mother I
I could kill you
Mother I forgive you
Mother I forgive you
