Mother Like Daughter

By @MeaningfulMee

Mother Like Daughter

Screaming through the crack in the wallpaper.

Fading away like a vapor.

Time won’t waiting for her.

Time won’t save her.

Dad wouldn’t stay for her.

Mum wouldn’t sober up for her.

No knight’s coming to save her.

She’s left screaming through the crack in the wallpaper.

Big brother’s had enough of her.

Big brother’s gonna hit her, again.

Little sisters looking at it.

Little sisters crying for her.

One day, little sisters gonna get high for her,

gonna die for her.

Still screaming through the crack in the wallpaper.

Every boys wants a taste of her.

Sip of her.

She says no.

They talk **** ’bout her.

Screaming through the crack in the wallpaper.

No ones came to save her.

To late now.

Now it’s men that crave her.

Still screaming through the crack in the wallpaper.

Baby girl in her arms,

history repeated.

Always screaming through the crack in the wallpaper.

Time didn’t wait for her.

Time didn’t save her.

No knight came to save her.

Now her baby girls screaming through the crack in the wallpaper.

Now she’s,

fading away like vapor.

Time isn’t waiting for her.

Time isn’t gonna save her.

Dad didn’t stay for her.

Mum won’t sober up for her.

No knight will come save her.

Mother like daughter.
