lyrics

Probably our mother is crying
But you would know nothing about that
Praying that she could resign
From all of the things you said you that wouldn't take back
Maybe there's no one to blame
Or how do we know who's at fault
For a brother that's dirtied our name
And now makes demands from behind a glass wall
It's another gray root
Showing through
On the head of a stubborn old mule

Mama couldn't make any daughters
But that doesn't mean she's ashamed
Of two sons and two different fathers
God knows it's nothing but the American way
And you did you think I'd forgotten?
So full of yourself you don't know
That madness comes every so often
But we always hoped that you wouldn't lose control
It's another gray root
Showing through
On the head of a stubborn old mule

Steps going up may be difficult
And steps going down may lead wrong
Though step dad was always so pitiful
It's not an excuse that you can lean on
I'd offer to help but why bother
When I know you'll just build a new fence
And duck behind walls of desire
Besides the fact you thrive on tragic events
It's another gray root
Showing through
On the head of a stubborn old mule

Remember the speech you gave father
Declared you wouldn't turn out like him
Now it seems I'd beg to differ
Though I have no right to judge anything
It's funny your struggle unending
A shame that it's come down to this
Continuing the fight for independence
But in here you have to get permission to piss
It's another gray root
Showing through
On the head of a stubborn old mule
