Father & Son

Father & Son (Scylla and Charybdis) by FathersOfWesternThoughtJJ

Lyrics

The eyes, that wish me well,
But do not know me.

The wings, too close, I fell,
Oh Father hold me.

The enemy can’t tell,
Hast thou found me?

The smile, the empty shell,
I do not know thee.

Life is many days. This will end.

The eyes, that wish me well,
But do not know me.

The ghost, escaped from hell,
Oh William scold me.

The home, in which I dwell,
You do not own me.

The son, the mothers cell,
Oh Father hold me.

Life is many days. This will end.
