Feel free to analyze. I want to hear peoples' theories before I reveal what it's actually about.

  1. How can you give this child the name of her son

    When you took him and murdered him, what have you done

    And you’ve murdered his brother, his sister is dead

    You scrape out their triumphs with footprints of red


    You abuse your own children you fathered with she

    You force them to be what you want them to be

    You build them straw towers on the soil of the graves

    Of the brothers who failed them by hiding in caves


    She gave you her dowry, you threw it away

    Her father knew best, I don’t care what you say

    You see all she is and you strip it away

    Because you wonder what the people will say


    You know what you did never can be undone

    You murder your sons just to build up the one

    Your favorite child, what have you made him do?

    You have made him destroy all I knew to be true

    So plug your ears and hide from attack

    Your sputtering blade ignited into my back

    You think you’re some iconoclast destroying my shrine

    But I’ll keep the things that will always be mine


    She gave you her dowry, you threw it away

    Her father knew best, I don’t care what you say

    You see all she is and you strip it away

    Because you wonder what the people will say


    She gave you her dowry, you threw it away

    Her father knew best, I don’t care what you say

    You see all she is and you strip it away

    Because you wonder what the people will say


    Plug your ears and hide from attack

    Your sputtering blade ignited into my back

    You think you’re some iconoclast destroying my shrine

    But I’ll keep the things that will always be mine
