Father gives me the keys to the cottage
Father says not to stay too late
Father pays for the cars and the mortgage
Father gives and takes away

Brother left me a bag on the table
Brother says not to take too much
Brother sleeps with the golden angels
Bother's had some real bad luck

(Father brother mother sister daughter daughter daughter)
Just the roles and the way we're brought up
Another day with the ties that bind us

Mother's hand on the edge of the cradle
Mother breath my life today
Mother serve from your silver ladle
Mother gives and takes away


from Get Ready To Run, released July 30, 2021
Mixed by Shane Hochstetler
Mastered by Carl Saff
Album Art by Eston Bennett
