Just a wee song we recorded ourselves before we release our EP!!

lyrics

// if i had a father //

sly am i, not underfoot. passersby don’t shed a look.

if i had a father, would he even bother?

i still feel the lightning’s scorn
took to this barn, to flee from harm
the sleep I’ve sown has come for me.
this hollow frame longs to bury

if i had a lover, would she choose another?
if i had a mother, would she pull me under?

i walked alone, i preyed alone, i tried alone, now i lie alone

if i had a father, would he even bother?
if i’d known the thunder, would tear me asunder.
if i had a lover, would she choose another?
if i had a mother, would she pull me under?

if i had a father, would he even bother?
if i’d known the thunder, would tear me asunder.
i was a reliever, now i am the sleeper
i was once the reaper, now i am the griever

weak am i, and underfoot. passersby won't shed a look.
