Days Turn Blue to Gray Lyrics

by Machine Head

Oh, thou have fathered
Son and daughter
Doth beget, yet raised not bother
Paralyzed your children lives
Withered vines of family ties

Self destruction
Makes him function

Crayons and clay
Days turn blue to gray
An' days turn blue to gray

Oh, seventeen when
Family begin'
Drinkin', fightin', heroin
Unquenchable addictions call
Responsible to none above all

Self destruction
Makes him function

Crayons and clay
An' days turn blue to gray
An' days turn blue to gray

Lest I taste
It's sweet grapes
Glass to tongue
Across it tips
Cross my lips
Swallow it down

Please
Won't you love me?
Please help me see
What did I do?
Did I hurt you?

And now that you're gone
Emptiness lives on
The guilt's all I feel
No closure

Father
Mother
Fucker
No closure

No, no, no, no

The strings of my hearts
You pulled on endlessly
This twine is severed
With tragedy

Father
Mother
Destroyer
Destroy her

Your self destruction
What made you feel alive?
Your self destruction
Of your children's lives, lives
