Lyrics:

It's been seventeen years an my heart didn't break yet
So why do I feel like i'm part of a train wreck
Every day spent like an aids test; positive
that all of this is just a product of a lack of confidence
 
But if I think about the way that my father lived
Tryin to break away from this apocalypse of politics
Was always hostile to bother him, thought i did not exist
Or was it the opposite, did I destroy my father's kid?
 
So why can't I go to his office an talk to him
why do I treat the man like he's harborin' hostages
Like he's part of the problem, it's obvious he's not he's just
swallowed by the promises Papa got from his consciousness
 
Papa's pockets are bottomless from workin' hard
Just stayed honest to himself, didn't follow the word of god
Stayed hollow in his current job, swallowed his burdened pride
And lookin back it makes me feel so sorry I never heard him sob
 
And my mother, god knows that I love her
Even though I never said it back when I was younger
Helping me to look at every situation logically
And guided me to light when the whole world was mocking me
 
Her only struggle is worry when im troubled
Hoping someday I can burst from my bubble
Learn from the puzzles emerge from the rubble
and live for a minute but hurt for a couple
 
I cant imagine what it's like to hear your child scream
To see your child bleed, watch them in dire need
Riding at light speed to find where their life leads
But all the same tryna tame their inner wild beast
 
I dont doubt it, both of them did care for me, Lived carefully
and every fucking night im damn sure they were scared for me
And even if they never were the very best at parenting
They fucking tried, and even family ain't guaranteed
 
Drop an apple where the tree trunk stands
Listen to the captain, do as he commands
Their only purpose? Givin' me a chance
To spread my wings and help me be a man
 
Drop an apple where the tree trunk stands
Listen to the captain, do as he commands
Their only purpose? Givin me a chance
To spread my wings and help me be a man
