I've forgotten her face
I don't remember her voice at all
What is she to me, anyway?
Why should I care that I don't recall?

Well, all my pride was misplaced
How could I have been so blind
What use is a memorial in your mind?

Cups break, windows crack
Trees die, and don't grow back
If you wait
The leaves will all turn black

And she, too, forgot me
At last the whole truth has come to light
It was all just a gambit
A surrender and not a fight

And for all those years, she bore my weight, for love, for hate, she tolerated
Me, abandoned me, a worthless scrap to her, until she died that night
That endless night

Cups break, windows crack
trees die, and don't grow back
If you wait, the leaves will all turn black

Don't you know,
overgrown houses fall
all they've known, no trace at all
a bird sends up her morning call

I've always known how to make things
but not how to break them,
I don't know how to take it
when they can't be repaired
I've always known! She's gone,
she's gone, she's gone, she's gone...
She never cared

Who am I, who was I
to you, my mother? Answer me!

Cups break, windows crack
trees die, and don't grow back
suddenly, everything goes black

Songs end, seeds decay
You can't pretend the grief away
Oh, if I could send a reply with the things I'd like to say
I'd say I'm sorry, that I wasted my childhood away

But you're not there
And you can't watch me
Destroy this memorial today.
