lyrics

Casting lots to see what traits you'll get.
From the father, from the Mother Hen.
When you're a chicken that is the best you get.
Happy birthday welcome to your home,
Nights are cold here and the days are warm,
Find a lover or do it on your own.
I've been running like hell since then,
From the way they live.
I won't marry some heartbreaker.
I'll just stay here.
Unbelievable how he talks to her,
His own wife, my own mother.
Up the stairs and through the open door,
I can hear it, things I'll never say,
And I swear it up and down all day.
I don't see it. It's in my DNA.
I've been running like hell since then,
From the way they live.
I won't marry some heartbreaker.
I'll just stay here.
And be the background noise,
As if I had a choice.
I got some nerve just being here,
Playing both parts all at once.
I am the secret scowl,
Behind the blushing brow.
You got some nerve coming here,
Telling me how to get fixed,
When it's the sound of your voice,
That's making me sick.
They say the honey you would be my soul mate.
They say the glowing is a heavy gateway,
It is our gateway.
Dear God, hear me pray to live,
Please release me from my inheritance.
Let me love 'cause I have not loved yet.
I've been running like hell since then,
From my own damn self.
I will marry a heartbreaker.
I will love her.
