lyrics

Breadwinner

And I’ll work
until my hands bleed
like Yours did
like my kids knees
when he scraped them

And I wasn’t there to see it
but You there to see mine
and now I never have the time to drop by

Lonely men that walk
(lonely men that walk)
Carpel tunnel calling
Ce will take their hands
(we will take their hands)
And wrap them ‘round your belly
We will sing Your song
(we will sing Your song)
We will sing Your song
(we will sing Your song)
Until our breath refills

And I will never see my children
but in my peripherals
they may cry and they may beg but
they will never argue if I fill their wallets
never make them happy like a dollar bill could

(lonely)
Lonely men that walk
(lonely men that walk)
Carpel tunnel calling
Ce will take their hands
(we will take their hands)
And wrap them ‘round your belly
We will sing Your song
(we will sing Your song)
We will sing Your song
(we will sing Your song)
Until our breath refills

It’s like your going through a tunnel
at the end there
at the end there is no light though
and any bright you see
is comin’ from behind ya
so whydontcha* turn around and face it
although your corneas might hate it at first
when your eyes adjust
you’ll see what you wanted all along
when your eyes adjust
you’ll see we’re all children after all
