Smother
Daughter Lyrics


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

In the darkness I will meet my creators
They will all agree, I'm a suffocator

Suffocator
Oh no
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.

"Agobio"

Soy un desperdicio, pierdiendo el tiempo
Soy una tonta y frágil espina dorsal
Quiero todo lo que no es mío
Lo quiero a él, pero lo nuestro no es posible

En la oscuridad me encontrare con mis creadores
y todos estarán de acuerdo en que soy un agobio

Debería ir me ahora, silenciosamente
Con mis huesos hayando un lugar para enterrarse y descansar
Donde todas mis capas pueden volverse juncos,
Todas mis extremidades pueden volverse árboles
Todos mis hijos pueden convertirse en mi
Que lío que dejo
para seguir ...

Oh, Amor
Perdoname si te he agobiado,
Perdoname si te he agobiado,
A veces desearía haber permanecido dentro de mi madre
para nunca salir de ahí

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'm 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'll 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 no,
I'm sorry if I smothered you,
I'm sorry if I smothered you,
I sometimes wish I'd stay inside, my mother
Never to come out.



Aven of the Abyss

No friends. My friends always leave me behind. I'm adopted, and while my siblings all got to be with each other, it was just me who was left alone. Not to mention why we got adopted out being the reason a few of the messed up ones, including me, got PTSD with all the other mental issues that I can thank our parents for since all they did was huff paint and drink when they had us and our mother even when she was pregnant. I still remember the times when my parents would lock us in this small closet just because we were being loud from crying, the only person in there with me being my other sister who's a year older. I remember her crying. I remember having lice in my hair, my teeth having bottle rot, my stomach protruding from being malnourished. I remember whenever I got scared, sad, or hungry, it wasn't our parents there, as they were off getting drunk or high, but it was two of our older siblings, my eldest sister and youngest brother. Whenever I cried from a bloody nose, my eldest sister would be the one to calm me. When I woke up screaming from nightmares, they would be there for me. I remember getting adopted out. They all got adopted with each other, the three brothers and one sister, the one who would cry with me in the closet, moved somewhere. My other three sisters, including my eldest, the one who always took care of me, moved to another house as well. I remember them visiting when we were younger, we would all have so much fun. Then it would be time for them to go, and as I stood at the screen door and looked out, I would watch them go as they weren't all together but at least they had each other. Over the years, they visited less and less, and now I don't even hear from my brothers or one sister. My brother brought me a teddy bear once, and I hugged it as I walked with him down my adoptive parent's sidewalk; he was wearing jail clothes. Unsurprising since my brothers have all been in jail at least once, my sister lost her children once already, and my other sister with my two other sisters has been in and out of psych for her bipolar disorder. One time she even shoved her mom, or was it hit, I don't remember. She's a mess too.
Our biological parents have been dead for years now. Then they all try and talk to me on something like Facebook, and say "I love you" like we're "Family." Yeah right. We haven't been family since were were just kids. I want to tell them, "I don't need you, maybe I did once, but now I don't want to," because it's true, I don't need them. Them, or my former "friends," or the ones in name only like on Facebook.

And now, I'm all grown up. No friends. I used to have friends, but they decided to leave me behind also. Depression, ADHD, Anxiety, some FAS even, I'm a mess.
I've thought of suicide before, of cutting my wrists, because I'm really a waste sometimes. And even with medications, I still get so gut-wrenchingly depressed.
As far as I'm concerned, I have no family except my mom and dad, the ones who adopted me. When they die, I'll be completely alone. I've thought of just ending it right there, because the thought of being absolutely alone terrifies me. My adoptive sisters, I have two, already had their own family when I was adopted. I rely on first impressions only, and I remember my one sister, the younger, giving me the feeling of almost resentment. I was an outsider, I got that easily, and I was a kid. The other sister, she tried to get close, but since I was already so gone, she never got through and now she never will. Their kids, my nieces or nephews, I got close to, but they would eventually grow up and move on also. I'd say I've broken from them also, but I was never truly close...so that helps.

This song makes me think of all the things in my life that I now look at bitterly. There are things I do treasure in my life though, but it has nothing to do with siblings or friends. It's my adoptive parents, my parents, my little pet furballs (gerbils), my hobbies, my books, and online things or people.

I think of this song, get depressed, but then I remember that if I accomplish my dream of being a graphic novelist, maybe I'll gain some real friends. One day I'll be happy, not alone, or not afraid of being so. For now though, I'll take the occasional time to wallow. For that, I thank songs like this, as nothing makes me think of my past as such.

It also feels better to get stuff out, even if no one gives a care.
Ha. And they say therapy would help, it's just talking. This will do.

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.

Thank you for serving

You didnt fail them brother. Our government did. You did everything you could. They prepare real good for what they want you to do, and how to do it, but they dont do anything to help you cope and process the nightmares, silence the screems, the cold sweats, always looking for threats once you rotate back to the real. H.O.O.A.H If you can untangle your mortality of who you where and what you did and leave all that, it doesnt make you bad or psychotic. You were doing what you had to so you came home alive. Please dont ever feel bad for making it. Who you were checked out after night 1 inside the wire. Who came back home, well my friend, you get to decide that every day. You are Shawn Mizzles. VET. Son. Friend. A very good friend of mine is support for soldiers at the va. I could put you in contact maybe with her. Talking helps. H.O.O.A.H?

George Saab

thank you for your service and great sacrifices. I hope you find the peace you deserve
