Mother mother found me on her step
Gracious mother held me to her breast
Until the day I started..

..pushing
Too late to cry she turned away
I started pushing
I saw no future in this lack


I started pushing pushing pushing forward back
I was pushing pushing pushing forward back
I was pushing pushing pushing forward back
I was pushing pushing pushing forward back

Baby brother clinging to her hair
Gracious mother pleading not another soul to bare
He started..

..pushing
All my kings have fallen down
I started pushing
Fallen heroes feed the ground


I started pushing pushing pushing forward back
I was pushing pushing pushing forward back
I was pushing pushing pushing forward back
I was pushing pushing pushing forward back


Falling down..
Now I know her
I know I'll never drown
Drown
Drown

Falling down..
Now I know her
I know I'll never drown
Drown
Drown


Oh, I was pushing

I was pushing pushing pushing forward back
I was pushing pushing pushing forward back
I was pushing pushing pushing forward back
I was pushing pushing pushing forward back

I was pushing pushing pushing forward back
I was pushing pushing pushing forward back
I was pushing pushing pushing forward back
I was pushing pushing pushing forward back
I was pushing pushing pushing forward back
I was pushing pushing pushing forward back
