Water Thickens Blood

My blood pumps oil and my breath pumps steam
Close as a rock your all on a petty team
Forget your family or forget them not is your attitude to be
For the times as a child I did everything where’s the gratitude to me
Gossiping and disregarding each other not how a family should mould
I’m just awaiting my own family to love and gracefully growing old
You have caused heartache like lightning has struck me down
No more a tear and no more will I express a frown
I remain no part of you but I think lucky me
You carry on with one another as I live my life free
