They stoleE Aaway without their goodbyes, got married in a foreign town, made their wayC#m DEas best as they could. Found jobs and settled down. And then time moved on.Interlude: D A (x2)D AI was born in a river of blood on sheets from the wedding day. The room was dark and thestench was thick my father couldn't stand the smell of it.DMama died in the night cause the nearest doctor couldn't stem the bloodA Eloss. Father cried out on the back porch. My sister held me at theD Eneighbor's house. Oh my there was a storm then, there was a flood of aA C#mdifferent kind. Father's eyes were often vacant, but his hands were rarelyD Equiet. Sister learned to take her hits well, both from life and theA C#mphysical kind, but I was never one to lie down, despite who picked theD Efight. So we designed our hells.Interlude: A D E (x2)D E AFather turned into a drinker, a dark bastard with a wooden heart. SisterC#m Dlearned to be a mother, before she ever played another part. And I became aE Alittle terror, I lashed out at whatever's around. Took some time before IC#m D Esettled, to find a mind that was somewhat sound. And like it always does,A D Etime rushed on.A DSix years later father died in the very same bedroom. Many said it was theE Agrief that did it, I have to say it's cause he hung himself. To be honestDneither sister nor myself ever much regret his passing. But I admit it wasE Aa nice thing, to always know that we could feed ourselves.-Ben Malley
