My dearest family, I just want clarity.
Why is the bond slowly falling apart?
Don't try and lie to me, I'm all alone you see.
I don't know why you ran away.

It seems as though you've got no fucking love to give.
And it feels like life has given me no time to live.
And when I emerge from a string of pointless days,
I ask myself why I crawled out in the first place.
Escaping my reality was a circumstance I refused to find myself in.
But thanks to you, I'm afraid to face my family.

It makes me sick to wonder how you can always give up on us, to be such a highpoint in my life,
And disappear before my eyes. It makes me sick to know I'm still here for you,
Knowing one day you're gonna need it.
My dearest family, I need security.
I pray your hands lay my head to rest.

A broken path, a failure's attempt at salvaging life rafts, that buried themselves past
Hopeful revival, you ruined all that we had.
No point in trying, it's obvious you can't.

You're running in circles around the rings in the trees.
