lyrics

You call me mother
But I'll stay with you
Call me mother
And I'll stay with you

My children in their mall of American clothes
So the money doesn't show
My children in the weight of the new time
My children and the things they know

You call me mother
But I'll stay with you
Call me mother
Just keep your head in the game babe

I don't mind if I have to console myself
While I wait in the wings for the landslide
I'll skim off all the unnecessary flesh
Gnaw through the limbs, absorb the little lies
In my dreams I'm stripped and bound by lions
While the lights flash in the press room
I held all the devils doubts at bay
Then I held my tongue for you

You call me mother
But I'll stay with you
Call me mother
To keep my head in the game babe
