mommy, you're broken.

i hear you at night

your bottles are clinking 

it fills me with fright.


mommy, were broken,

this family i think

the yelling seems constant

we continue to sink


mommy, hes broken,

my father i fear.

said you cannot hide

and hes on his way here.


mommy, shes broken,

the sister i know.

now she leaves and she cries

oh, where did she go?


mommy I'm broken,

my smiles a lie.

were a mess, my god,

mommy were gonna die.

My family
