Father is underground, waiting
Orphan and the time bomb
Crawl from colored curtains
Directing sailing ships
From the edges where we slip down

The grieving mother breaks down
Another brandy water
Watch the pictures circle around
I’m never gonna be the same, ma…
The boy is just to feel the shame

Directing sailing ships
From the edges where we slip down
