Smother
Daughter Lyrics


I am wasted, losing time
On a foolish, fragile spine
I want all that is not mine
I want him but we're not right

In the darkness, I will meet my creators
And they will all agree, that I'm a suffocator

I should go now quietly
For my bones have found a place to lie down and sleep
Where all my layers can become reeds
All my limbs can become trees
All my children can become me
What a mess I leave

To follow
To follow
To follow
To follow

In the darkness, I will meet my creators
And they will all agree that I'm a suffocator, suffocator, suffocator

Oh love
I'm sorry if I smothered you
I'm sorry if I smothered you
I sometimes wish I'd stayed inside
My mother
Never to come out

I’m wasted, losing time
I’m a foolish, fragile spine
I want all that is not mine
I want him but we’re not right

In the darkness I will meet my creators
And they will all agree, that I’m a suffocator

I should go now quietly
For my bones have found a place to lie down and sleep
Where all my layers can become reeds
All my limbs can become trees
All my children can become me
What a mess I leave
To follow [4x]

In the darkness I will meet my creators
They will all agree, I’m a suffocator
Suffocator [2x]

Oh no
I’m sorry if I smothered you [2x]
I sometimes wish I’d stayed inside my mother
Never to come out

I don't regret knowing to know who you are.
I don't regret seeing who you were behind the veil you show to others.
I don't even regret coming to love you and feel my soul awaken with the joy and thirst for the life that we could have made together.
I feel the sorrow that you let go of who I am.
You forgot the person who you had fallen in love with.
Even if it was because of someone else or because of myself.
I awake each day feeling the same way I did for you.
I awake feeling as though there is something that I should have said.
Something I should have felt.

That isn't the case.
You forgot me.
You forgot that I was the one who loved you when you were there.
I was the one who told you that you were more than even you saw yourself as.
I guess that is the problem with me.

I built you up.
I was the one who fell.

Now I am the one who is the rubble while you are the one.
The ones who awoke the dream that lived inside me.
Now I am the one who is left behind.

You know.... The best feeling it's realized you're not sad over something you thought u never could.

It's such a great feeling.
3 years ago, I used to listen to this song and the other one (medicine) and I used to cry a lot, seemed like I wasn't able to stop, and it made me feel awfull but at the same time I kept listening to it.

Now, I'm here. Listening to it, and I don't feel sadness at all.

I'm feeling great. Not sad anymore. Not depressed anymore.

When it was my 18 birthday, the gift that I gave to myself was getting over all of that, that makes me feel down. I didn't want to kill myself anymore.
It was such a goal to me.
And I'm so grateful with myself that I could reach it. ❤️

I hope u guys are okay and if you're not try everything u can to feel better, ask for help, talk to your love ones, friends, family, just someone who you trust and make sure it's realiable and has a good Mental health.

If u don't have or want to talk to anyone around u, u can talk to me.

🌻Dear person who's reading this: I hope today doesn't suck, lots of love, ❤️ I know u can make it. (っ.❛ ᴗ ❛.)っ

I love that she says "I wish I'd stayed inside my mother," instead of "I wish I'd never been born." As tragic as it is, it's also more hopeful. Inside our mothers we're at our safest, the closest to another human being we can be, and we still have all of our potential with none of our failures. It's a risk-free, entirely loved form of existing.

not if the person you came from wasn’t as safe as you thought.

I love this comment because it perfectly verbalizes how I interpret and relate to that line in the lyrics. Couldn’t figure out how to put it into words, myself! I think if you’re someone who’s experienced the level of mental/emotional distress it would take to be in a place where you’d say “I wish I’d never been born,” this part of the lyrics would hit you different.

what if your mom loves drinking 🤨

Barbora Kárníková

@yuyu I never implied that mothers are to blame for what they had to endure themselves in the past. For me in fact, the abuse rather originated in the accumulated pain and misunderstanding on my dad's side. Sometime in the future, I also hope to be a mom myself, so I just try and learn about and from the things those who birthed and raised me suffered. Thing is, you're partially right - though it's also not exactly an option for some I am sure, I very much believe taking the steps necessary to deal with one's own trauma before giving life to another human should be a thing every future parent does just from the principle of the role they are to take on.

We choose who we become and carry onto those who we care for at some point in our lives, no matter how or by who we were abused in the past. Some just never step up and that truly is unworthy of sympathy in my eyes - mothers especially based on the biological bond, for a mother should protect her offspring, not inflict unnecessary pain by not dealing with her own. If "victim-blaming" as you called it is what it takes to make one future mother in a stagnant position open her mind and work on the state of things, so her child does not carry the weight of the cycle of hurt, then I am willing to do just that. Hope this made the message clearer and you'll also get better, whichever hurt you went through.

@Barbora Kárníková way to victim-blame mothers for being abused.

This song literally gives me goosebumps. I served 9.5 years in the US Army and now suffer from PTSD, TBI, insomnia and, fibromyalgia. Long of the short, I have lost several army buddies due to suicide. I tried several times to connect with them and help them but failed. It hurts...it gets loud in my head sometimes...music seems to quiet it down at times...thank you, everyone,​ for existing. Much love.

Im incredibly proud of how far you’ve come and know that the people you lost would want more than anything to see you keep fighting and find happiness in life. As someone who suffers from PTSD, I can assure you that you are not alone and that you’re going to get better. You won’t ever forget about those experiences but eventually you will make Peace with your past and learn to smile and laugh again. Keep fighting man, you’re so strong. Never forget that
