I hear you talk about your family life
I wish I knew just what that means
I guess my mother never loved my dad
And now I wear it on my sleeve

My sister called me just the other day
It felt so good to hear her voice
My problem is I don't have much to say
I guess she doesn't have a choice and I'm sorry

Look at me I'm so pathetic
I can't believe I'm just an addict
I've never needed anyone to help me
I'm begging you to please come save me from myself, save me from my...

My mothers always tried to change herself
She never learned to let things be
She doesn't know how bad she messed me up
'Cause now she seems so fake to me but I love her

Look at me I'm so pathetic
I can't believe I'm just an addict
I've never needed anyone to help me
I'm begging you to please come save me from myself, save me from myself

If you push me then I won't fall
I've been programmed to take it all
And shove it way down inside

Like my father (2x)

I'm so pathetic
I can't believe I'm just an addict
I've never needed anyone to help me (I'm failing it)
I'm begging you to please come save me from myself

I hear you talk about your family life
I wish I knew just what that means

    A child lives in a broken home, learns to deal with the blows by developing an outer shell that no one can break through, nor in the end can she break out of. A child whose parents were so consumed in their own emotional and physical issues, they failed to give their child the tools to deal with real life and real people. Instead of giving her brushes to paint her world with color, they gave her axes to tear it down to nothing. The child learned to stand alone, because she never had anyone to lean on, no one who cared really about the anger and stoicity that was developing inside. Standing alone makes one lonely eventually. That child, doesn't know how to deal with adult emotions, and resorts to other things to ease the pain and cope. Eventually, even that isn't enough to drive it all away. Like today...
