Release year:2013

I know I let you down
And though you say the days are happy
Why is the power off, and Im fucked up?
And mom, I know hes not around
But dont you place the blame on me
As you pour yourself another drink and
I guess we are who we are
Headlights shining in the dark night, I drive on
Maybe we took this too far
I went in headfirst
Never thinking about who what I said hurt, in what verse
My mom probably got it the worst
The brunt of it, but as stubborn as we are
Did I take it too far?
Cleaning out my closet and all them other songs
But regardless I dont hate you cause ma!
Youre still beautiful to me, cause youre my mom
Though far be it for you to be calling, my house was Vietnam
Desert Storm and both of us put together
Can form an atomic bomb equivalent to chemical warfare
And forever we can drag this on and on
But, agree to disagree
That gift from me up under the Christmas tree dont mean shit to me
Youre kicking me out? Its fifteen degrees and its Christmas Eve (little prick just leave)
Ma, let me grab my fucking coat, anything to have each others goats
Why we always at each others throats? Especially when dad, he fucked us both
Were in the same fucking boat, youd think that itd make us close (nope)
Further away that drove us, but together headlights shine, a car full of belongings
Still got a ways to go, back to grandmas house its straight up the road
And I was the man of the house, the oldest, so my shoulders carried the weight of the load
Then Nate got taken away by the state at eight years old, and
Thats when I realized you were sick and it wasnt fixable or changeable
And to this day we remained estranged and I hate it though, but
I guess we are who we are
Headlights shining in the dark night I drive on
Maybe we took this too far
Cause to this day we remain estranged and I hate it though
Cause you aint even get to witness your grand babys growth
But Im sorry mama for Cleaning Out My Closet, at the time I was angry
Rightfully maybe so, never meant that far to take it though, cause
Now I know its not your fault, and Im not making jokes
That song I no longer play at shows and I cringe every time its on the radio
And I think of Nathan being placed in a home
And all the medicine you fed us
And how I just wanted you to taste your own, but
Now the medications taken over and your mental states deteriorating slow
And Im way too old to cry, that shits painful though
But ma, I forgive you, so does Nathan yo
All you did, all you said, you did your best to raise us both
Foster care, that cross you bare, few may be as heavy as yours
But I love you Debbie Mathers, oh what a tangled web we have, cause
One thing I never asked was where the fuck my deadbeat dad was
Fuck it I guess he had trouble keeping up with every address
But Id have flipped every mattress, every rock and desert cactus
Own a collection of maps and followed my kids to the edge of the atlas
Someone ever moved them from me? That you could bet your asss
If I had to come down the chimney dressed as Santa, kidnap them
And although one has met their grandma
Once you pulled up in our drive one night as we were leaving to get some hamburgers
Me, her and Nate, we introduced you, hugged you
And as you left I had this overwhelming sadness come over me
As we pulled off to go our separate paths, and
I saw your headlights as I looked back
And Im mad I didnt get the chance to thank you for being my Mom and my Dad
So Mom, please accept this as a tribute I wrote this on the jet
I guess I had to get this off my chest, I hope I get the chance to lay it before Im dead
The stewardess said to fasten my seat belt, I guess were crashing
So if Im not dreaming, I hope you get this message that Ill always love you from afar
Cause youre my mama
I guess we are who we are
Headlights shining in the dark night I drive on
Maybe we took this too far
I want a new life
One without a cause
So Im coming home tonight
Well no matter what the cost
And if the plane goes down
Or if the crew cant wake me up
Just know that I was alright
And I was not afraid to die
Oh even if theres songs to sing
My children will carry me
Just know that Im alright
I was not afraid to die
Because I put my faith in my new girl
So I never say goodbye cruel world
Just know that Im alright
I am not afraid to die
I guess we are who we are
Headlights shining in the dark night I drive on
Maybe we took this too far, I want a new life
