family tradition lyrics – senses fail

“family tradition”

i try to be the one that everybody loves
where has that gotten me?
i tear myself to shreds to prove that i’m someone
that i could never be
now these unsightly marks define me

so help me
please someone come quick
i think i am losing it
forgive me i inherited this
from a stranger i’ll never miss
i’m sick

my father taught me firsthand how to be set free
give up and run away
i wish i could drain out his half of blood in me
but i’d still have his face
i curse reflections everyday

so help me
please someone come quick
i think i am losing it
forgive me i inherited this
from a stranger i’ll never miss

here is my own family tradition
following footsteps into addiction
so is there a way
that i can find peace while still numbing my pain?
is this my fate?
cause your only son still can’t seem to find his way

so help me
please someone come quick
i think i am losing it
forgive me i inherited this
from a stranger i’ll never miss

so father where the h*ll are you now?
i think that you would be proud
your son, who so unluckily
fell right next to the tree

i hope you’re proud of me
i hope you’re proud…
