lyrics

Your mother always told you: “that body wasn’t built to be loved.”
Your father wrote a gospel that said serve only what serves yourself
Still you carry the banner like it’s the difference between heaven and hell.
But you cannot have honor with your valor sitting up on the shelf.

Your house is no empire, you’ll never be the queen.
This tree of your family rots where it’s standing.
The branches break off like they’re leaves in the breeze.

My father always told me: “have family or have nothing at all.
You’ll never need an army with a few good men at your side."
He said: “you don’t forget treason, you repay it swiftly in kind.”
But forgiveness is your savior if you understand when it applies.

Your house is no empire, you’ll never be the queen.
This tree of your family rots where it’s standing.
Bitter is the fruit and bitter was the seed.
Decades of scheming have earned you this evening.
The viper’s in your house, and the wolves are at your door.
The sins of your mother are clawing from under,
the place where she buried them before you were born.
