My Mother’s Side

48 years ago on March 26th
A branch bent toward her door and it splintered to sticks
The splinters arranged in the form of a fence
And I’ve been trying to scale that thing ever since

When I was born I came out of my mother’s side

Now dreams can be explained but I will leave that to the sages
And stories remain long after you read the pages
They say a weight that is placed can be lifted again
But I’ve been trying to get out from mine ever since then

When I was born I came out of my mother’s side

Some people swing the pendulum some read the chart of the hand
Some people play it safe some people give up the band
The time to stay focused well you see that it came and it went
So darling pull up the covers and remain in the tent

When I was born I came out of my mother’s side


from Untreated (1x3), released March 2, 2019
