Tonight

He’s not sober…
But it’s not over…
Brother, why did you do this to us tonight?
How did you put up with that fight?
He’s talking about his brothers…
While everything blurs…
Sister, why did you play along with them?
How did you make it through life?

I called the police…
But, I’ve tried to stay chill…
I’m a weird individual… why did I choose to live in the first place?
How did I end up this way?
I’m weak…I’m strange…
Is it because of old age?
Tonight…
Is full of fear and fright
Tonight…I want to talk to my true Father
The father is looking after his daughter

“And that’s why you shouldn’t drink…”
Oh, tell me that while my heart weighs me down
My brother’s acting insane…
Refrain from creating lightning…just listen to the rain
