Mama, mama, mama
Half my blood is always yours,
But the dirt of age has clogged my heart and pores

Mama, mama, mama
I don't treat you like I should
Am I the son you'd choose if you could?

Mama, mama, mama
If I'm angry, if I'm lonely
You still love me, you still own me

Though mama, mama, mama
My eyes are vague and distant to you
As distant as the eyes within the man within the moon

But mama, mama, mama
My heart is close and honest with you
Closer than my body was for nine months deep within you

Mama! Mama, mama, mama
Somehow I can always seem to make you proud
By singing all the words that I could never say out loud
I put a tune to all love and hate I have for everything
Oh what a knack I seem to have for love and hate
And for plucking metal strings

But mama, mama, mama
For you I have only one thing
There's no hatred, only loving

And mama, mama, mama
This song could be never ending,
But it ends here with fractured statements worthier of mending

And why is this the fastest song that I have ever written?
