Silhouettes above the cradle hold me down
They won't let me go the wrong way
My mother taught me all the fables
Told me how in the end all the sinners have to pay
But
I don't wanna live like my mother
I don't wanna let fear rule my life
And I don't wanna live like my father
I don't wanna give up before I die

He works so hard his bones are breaking
He wore them down
But long ago he lost the feeling
His good intensions leave me shaking
Show me how
I don't ever want to end up like he did

I don't wanna live like my mother
I don't wanna let fear rule my life
I don't wanna live like my father
I don't wanna give up before I die

When I have kids
I won't put any chains on their wrists, I won't
I'll tell him this
There's nothing in this world that you can't be if you want it enough

I don't wanna live like my mother
I don't wanna let fear rule my life
I don't wanna live like my father
I don't wanna give up before I die

I don't wanna live like my mother
I don't wanna let fear rule my life
I don't wanna live like my father
I don't wanna give up before I die
