Smile Empty Soul – Silhouettes lyrics

Silhouettes above the cradle hold me down
They won't let me go the wrong way
My mother taught me all the fables
Told me how in the end all the sinners have to pay
But
I don't wanna live like my mother
I don't wanna let fear rule my life
And I don't wanna live like my father
I don't wanna give up before I die

He works so hard his bones are breaking
He wore them down
But long ago he lost the feeling
His good intensions leave me shaking
Show me how
I don't ever want to end up like he did

I don't wanna live like my mother
I don't wanna let fear rule my life
I don't wanna live like my father
I don't wanna give up before I die

When I have kids
I won't put any chains on their wrists, I won't
I'll tell him this
There's nothing in this world that you can't be if you want it enough

I don't wanna live like my mother
I don't wanna let fear rule my life
I don't wanna live like my father
I don't wanna give up before I die

I don't wanna live like my mother
I don't wanna let fear rule my life
I don't wanna live like my father
I don't wanna give up before I die

    The song really rings true for me. My Mom is over protective, always wanting me to be safe and never give into bad influences - but in order to break away, I tried to run away from home. Her overprotective nature forced me to run because I couldn't take it any more. My Dad, I'd seriously hate becoming like he is - I'm his best friend and the only guy really there for him. He told me once how he looks back on his life and hates giving up on his dreams and how he just went with the flow. It's seriously wore him down and I can see it. I can't become like them. I can't and I won't. That's why the song really rings true for me.
