Introspective surficana tune about a grown adult male no longer being able to play the role as his emotionally abusive father's son


Family isn't family
If they can't be your friend anymore
Loving isn't loving
When your family retaliates for
Can't play the son no more
They don't love me anymore

Music you mustn't lose it
And you should use it to find out who you are
Judging isn't loving and I can't be your son anymore
The consequences for
You don't love me anymore

Rips me at the core
You don't me love anymore

People they're not evil
They just can't see things like you can
Your ego as far as we go
I just can't play your son anymore
The consequences for
You don't love me anymore
