lyrics

When I was a kid you stood over me, while I was asleep.
Your hands on my skin/your curse upon me, while I was asleep.
The red in Mom's eyes/the tears on her cheeks, the secrets I keep.
When I was a kid you took it from me, and I'm still asleep.

I bear the weight of the family shame.
It's funny how I'm the one you blame.
I bear the weight of the family shame.

The void in your eyes/the welts on my cheeks, the secrets I keep.

When I was a kid you snuffed what was lit, while I was asleep.
I eat like a pig just to swallow your shit, and I'm still asleep.

I bear the weight of the family shame.
After twenty years it still hurts the same.
I am the face of the family shame.
It's funny how I'm the one you blame.

While you were touching me I was having a dream of a family love that was pure and deep.
