Survival Training


Show me how to forget
But to not let these memories fade into my mind
Blurring the lines
Until it all just turns into one big lump
Stuck in my throat as I try and fail
To tell you the words you need to hear.
Teach me what my father forgot
While he was too busy destroying what
I've already blacked out
Theres no way I can let the light in
Not without a little help.
Forgive me
For all the times I'll scream and cry
And confuse and anger and
Love you till it hurts.
I dont know how to stop.
