lyrics

Do you recall the name of the flaw or law that you broke
When you trespassed against me
Well I do

When you were a child, you though you could just go it alone
My son, my boy, well now we're older and you've caught on
We are frail, and that thought is hard to bear

Because it's all just a little bit broader
Than the shoulders on your father's coat
Which you seem to have outgrown
And you, you should have believed in me believing in you
But you grew too heavy for me to hold
And I, I would have trusted in you like you trusted in me
But your arms were never there to break my fall
Because it's all just a little bit bigger than you and me
And that damned light at the end of the tunnel is so hard to see

When you were a child, you though you could just go it alone
My son, my boy, well now we're older and you've caught on
We are frail, and that thought is hard to bear

You're a shell of a man, like a shell in the sand
With no pearls to pawn, you're a motherless fawn
And a colorless dawn
You're a faceless crow to the people you know
You get lost in the flock, like the gears of a clock
Just part of the machine
