My mother is 80 pounds, abuse is a way of life to her. Her face is caked with pounds of make-up, and somehow she's still the most beautiful woman I've ever seen. I'm still waiting for her to come home.

Mommy, mommy
Please be sober
Mommy, mommy
I don't want to inherit your eating disorder
Mommy, mommy
Please keep breathing
Mommy, mommy
I don't want you to leave me

Mother, mother
I'm older now
Mother, mother
I deserve answers
Mother, mother
The swelling's gone down
Mother, mother
My voids are turning into cancer

Mama, mama
Put down that bottle
Mama, mama
Your body's too small
Mama, mama
I can't fight this battle
Mama, mama
You're too much to handle

Mom, mom
It's been far too long
Mom, mom
Where is that bruise from?
Mom, mom
I fear I am wrong
Mom, mom
I wanted to kiss you goodbye, but you never did come..

Mutter, mutter
Ich liebe dich
Mutter, mutter
Auf wiedersehen.
