Family Tree

Forgotten things remembered
The tigers eat their young
The body stayed but inside the head
The mind was on the run

Conspiracy of silence
The only way out of pain
Is turn around, run through it man
Too wet to come in from the rain,
Tell them
I know they were doing it to you
But don't try doing it to me

Let me show you how I love you
It's our secret, you and me
But keep it in the family

When you hear them saying "trust me"
Don't wait to see what's next
Thrown to the wolves for ever trusting
Raised in a form of living hell

Sing a one note song of rage
Live and die within your heart
So beware in the shadows
Your family tree waits in the dark,
I say
I know they were doing it to you
But don't try doing it to me, no, no

Let me show you how I love you
It's our secret, you and me
But, keep it in the family tree
It's our secret, you and me
The secret of the family tree
Beware of the shadows
Thrown to the wolves for ever trusting
