Cw: child abuse, implication of suicide

lyrics

V1:
Sunday night, I just got home
Dark outside and I get scared
When no one’s around
So I drag you to our neighbor’s house

V2:
And oh, that familiar ache, overwhelming me
Strung out on stale air and complacency
But it's all you have and it's all you know
And it's all I was till you let me go

Chorus:
I’m a casualty of the bomb you set
Maybe I'll forgive but I won’t forget
The last night
Everything was fine but nothing really felt right
We’ll blow this place so open wide
Until there’s nothing left to find
When they arrive upon the scene
How could a mother be so mean?

V3:
You love the way I smile when the sky's so blue
But you hate the way that I run to you
How I cry too hard and talk too much
And the way my hands don't want your touch

V4:
So you wrap me up in your favorite coat
And you shove your con right down my throat
But I promise I'll never let them see
And we'll con the world, just you and me

Chorus:
I’m a casualty of the bomb you set
Maybe I'll forgive but I won’t forget
The last night
Everything was fine but nothing really felt right
We’ll blow this place so open wide
Until there’s nothing left to find
When they arrive upon the scene
How could a mother be so mean?

V5:
You make me up, then you strip me down
And you make sure nobody comes around
I'm your chest of gold buried in the sand
And if you can't have me then no one can

V6:
And so I'll destroy every piece of me
Just to make sure you'll never get to see
Never hold me close, never hold me down
Now your ticking clock is the only sound
