Track Name: Phantom Limb
Give me silence,
Give me bruises,
Tell me true.
How does one disown their family like you do?
Who will leave the flowers at your grave?
Who will even know where you lay?
What will your children say?

Your teeth are rotten, and your gums have come un-glued.
We share a phantom limb, don't you feel it too?

What do you sell her?
Does she know your game?
Spread the cancer,
Feel the suffering.
Point to the flaws in my DNA,
But my blood isn't dirt,
Like that flowing through your veins.

Skip the science,
Kill compassion,
Beat me blue.
Treat me callous like an appendage removed.
When they ask me why you don't come home,
How do I tell the truth?

Cut out a piece of my thigh,
Let the wound suppurate.
Why couldn't you just say?

I used to wish you'd come home.
