Mother, don't worry. I killed the last snake that lived in the creek bed Mother, don't worry. I've got some money I saved for the weekend Mother, remember being so stern with that girl who was with me? Mother, remember the blink of an eye when I breathed through your body?
So may the sunrise bring hope where it once was forgotten Sons are like birds flying upwards over the mountain
Mother, I made it up from the bruise on the floor of this prison Mother, I lost it all of the fear of the Lord I was given Mother, forget me now that the creek drank the cradle you sang to Mother, forgive me I sold your car for the shoes that I gave you
So may the sunrise bring hope where it once was forgotten Sons can be birds taken broken up to the mountain
Mother, don't worry. I've got a coat and some friends on the corner Mother, don't worry. She's got a garden we're planting together Mother, remember the night that the dog had her pups in the pantry? Blood on the floor and the fleas on their paws, And you cried 'til the morning.
So may the sunrise bring hope where it once was forgotten Sons are like birds flying always over the mountain
