I know I let you down
And though you say the days are happy Why is the power off, and I'm f***ed up?
And mom, I know he's not around But don't you place the blame on me
As you pour yourself another drink and

I guess we are who we are Headlights shining in the dark night, I drive on Maybe we took this too far

I went in headfirst Never thinking about who what I said hurt, in what verse My mom probably got it the worst The brunt of it, but as stubborn as we are
Did I take it too far? Cleaning out my closet and all them other songs
But regardless I don't hate you 'cause ma!
You're still beautiful to me, cause you're my mom Though far be it for you to be calling, my house was Vietnam Desert Storm and both of us put together Can form an atomic bomb equivalent to chemical warfare
And forever we can drag this on and on
But, agree to disagree That gift from me up under the Christmas tree don't mean s*** to me
You're kicking me out? It's fifteen degrees and it's Christmas Eve (little p****) just leave)
Ma, let me grab my f***ing coat, anything to have each other's goats Why we always at each others throats? Especially when dad, he f***ed us both
We're in the same f***ing boat, you'd think that it'd make us close (nope) Further away that drove us, but together headlights shine, a car full of belongings Still got a ways to go, back to grandma's house it's straight up the road
And I was the man of the house, the oldest, so my shoulders carried the weight of the load
Then Nate got taken away by the state at eight years old, and
That's when I realized you were sick and it wasn't fixable or changeable And to this day we remained estranged and I hate it though, but

I guess we are who we are Headlights shining in the dark night I drive on Maybe we took this too far

'Cause to this day we remain estranged and I hate it though 'Cause you ain't even get to witness your grand baby's growth But I'm sorry mama for 'Cleaning Out My Closet', at the time I was angry Rightfully maybe so, never meant that far to take it though, 'cause
Now I know it's not your fault, and I'm not making jokes
That song I no longer play at shows and I cringe every time it's on the radio And I think of Nathan being placed in a home
And all the medicine you fed us
And how I just wanted you to taste your own, but
Now the medications taken over and your mental states deteriorating slow
And I'm way too old to cry, that s***'s painful though
But ma, I forgive you, so does Nathan yo
All you did, all you said, you did your best to raise us both Foster care, that cross you bare, few may be as heavy as yours But I love you Debbie Mathers, oh what a tangled web we have, 'cause
One thing I never asked was where the f*** my deadbeat dad was
F*** it I guess he had trouble keeping up with every address
But I'd have flipped every mattress, every rock and desert cactus
Own a collection of maps and followed my kids to the edge of the atlas Someone ever moved them from me? That you could bet your a**'s
If I had to come down the chimney dressed as Santa, kidnap them
And although one has met their grandma
Once you pulled up in our drive one night as we were leaving to get some hamburgers Me, her and Nate, we introduced you, hugged you
And as you left I had this overwhelming sadness come over me
As we pulled off to go our separate paths, and
I saw your headlights as I looked back
And I'm mad I didn't get the chance to thank you for being my Mom and my Dad
So Mom, please accept this as a tribute I wrote this on the jet
I guess I had to get this off my chest, I hope I get the chance to lay it before I'm dead
The stewardess said to fasten my seat belt, I guess we're crashing So if I'm not dreaming, I hope you get this message that I'll always love you from afar
'Cause you're my mama

I guess we are who we are Headlights shining in the dark night I drive on Maybe we took this too far

I want a new life
One without a cause So I'm coming home tonight Well no matter what the cost
And if the plane goes down
Or if the crew can't wake me up
Just know that I was alright And I was not afraid to die

Oh even if there's songs to sing
My children will carry me
Just know that I'm alright I was not afraid to die Because I put my faith in my new girl
So I never say goodbye cruel world Just know that I'm alright I am not afraid to die

I guess we are who we are Headlights shining in the dark night I drive on Maybe we took this too far, I want a new life
