Radical Face - Second Family Portrait Lyrics




My life started slow in a town of idle minds
Our daydreams filled the space between our simple drama
And my mom was strange, but she'd always liked to sew
And all my clothes smelled like the room I was born in
My dad was calm, never used two words when one would do
And my brother's hands were mischief-bent with no will to stop 'em
And on the whole we lived simply and day to day
Our fears were trivial, they always died with every sunset

When I was twelve my affliction came to light
And I was told that some things I heard were only there in my head
But I couldn't tell which were real and which were not
And the question loomed over all I did whether i could trust it
And I guess over time it became too much
And I was sent away at my mom's behest because she'd grown to fear me

Now I live up north in the house full of broken heads
And my father comes and visits me whenever he can afford it
Sometimes at night when the voices quiet down
I find a hope that I'm missed and that they haven't forgot me

    My life started slow in a town of idle minds
    Our daydreams filled the space between our simple drama
    And my mom was strange, but she'd always liked to sew
    And all my clothes smelled like the room I was born in
    My dad was calm, never used two words when one would do
    And my brother's hands were mischief-bent with no will to stop 'em
    And on the whole we lived simply and day to day
    Our fears were trivial, they always died with every sunset

    When I was twelve my affliction came to light 
    And I was told that some things I heard were only there in my head 
    But I couldn't tell which were real and which were not 
    And the question loomed over all I did whether i could trust it 
    And I guess over time it became too much 
    And I was sent away at my mom's behest because she'd grown to fear me

    Now I live up north in the house full of broken heads
    And my father comes and visits me whenever he can afford it
    Sometimes at night when the voices quiet down
    I find a hope that I'm missed and that they haven't forgot me

  5. cosmicwaffle 69

    I have no idea why this was left off the branches, but at least it was released. Incredible!

    Hey Ben, If you ever wanted to try writing a book again, I would commission you to do it, or at least buy several copies. Also, Your songs make activists of us all. They remind us that all people think, and feel, and need to be loved. Sometimes it's easy to send people away (mentally or literally) and forget about them, but that doesn't mean that they don't need or miss us.

    +Sean Clancy true words, I also have the same though about this. And I really wish he would finish his book
