lyrics

fly
silhouette
chip on your broad eyed shoulder
you, guarded friend
stand like a mother
like a tree
fighting drought
featherweight
beggin for another round

you're in a chair
I'm in the next room over
I cry every day
you say let's make it every other
O Father
you can tell
when a boat
needs a harbor lest it roam through hell

this tree
says "I...
once
built a tower
so why
do I now walk
one step at a time
no, half, but I'll be damned
before I cower
because
if I'm brave
if I'm crowned
maybe my young
won't
have to
shoulder this body
down"
