Mother warned me, she told me
Life isn't what we dream of
So don't sleep boy, stay restless
Don't put your hopes in this world
'Cause your love won't last, you'll be haunted by fear
Oh my God what have I told my son?

Mother I can't say quickly
What should be penned so eloquently
But I will try this one time
'Cause something inside's not right
With the world outside, with who hates who more
So I'll take my lowly pen and write

I'll write smiles in the sun, I'll applaud love in murals
I will sing at graves, I will sing soul sweet Mother
I will trust in dreams, I won't bend to the seasons
This is how I'd like to see everything in the world
Everything in the world

Mother I'm stumped, I've lost that feeling
So terribly sick that I'm reeling
Why don't they care, why don't they fight fair?
Why are they unhappy inside?

Mother I'm stumped, I've lost that feeling
So terribly sick that I'm reeling
Why don't they care, nobody cares
Why are they unhappy inside?

'Cause their hopes have died
Baby try and hold on
Oh my God what have I told my son?
Oh my God what have I told my son?
Oh my God what have I... ?

Mother, Mother
I'm so sorry
God knows I tried
But all the emptiness inside
It's tearing me up, I'm alive

Now you have to listen
You have to help me
I found the reason
For all the emptiness inside
It's tearing me up, I'm alive

'Cause they won't listen
They won't shut up
They keep talking
Making noise in my mind
I just wanna come home, Mother

Mother
Cover me
Cover me
I'm comin' in
Cover me
Cover me
'Cause I wouldn't wish
I wouldn't wish this on anyone
