Mother, I'm fine, everything's ok
It doesn't help to worry anyway
I'll be back before you know
You will be so proud to know
I was strong, I didn't let you down

Mother, I lied, this is not for me
I've seen so many people die and somehow I'm still here
And I don't know why I should be
The lucky one who gets to see
Another morning through these tired eyes

Mother, I'm dying, nothing more to give
My body breathes, but I don't want to live
And the bullet that's supposed to go
Inside some poor son's back
I hope it blows up in my face, so I can say

Mother, I died, and you won't have to know
There's nothing left but anger in my soul
I never found my truth out there
I never knew why we were there
I lost my youth, but no one seemed to care

Mother, I'm fine, everything's ok
It doesn't help to miss me anyway
I'll be in your heart you know
And you will be so proud to know
I was strong, I didn't let you down

I didn't let you down
I didn't let you down
I didn't let you down
I didn't let you down
