MOTHER - PINK FLOYD TRIBUTE

MOTHER

I can’t give up, I can’t give in
I wonder if I’m ever gonna fly again
Though I’ve tried and tried, it still went wrong
Mother do you think they’ll drop…
The bomb

I don’t recall where it all began
So many years ago I was just like them
But then I fell from grace as my life went on
Mother do you think they’ll like…
This song

Am I here because of a life of sin
Or am I simply sliding to a destined end
With my path behind not but empty halls
Mother do you think they’ll try to break…
My balls

You were all I had after father died
And so I fell to pieces as you cried and cried
Can I numb your pain, Can I break your fall
Mother…
Should I build the wall

Hush now baby baby don’t you cry

Mamma’s gonna make your nightmares seem
Real because her fear replaced your dreams
She’ll hold you close underneath her wings
Mamma…
Might just let you sing

I grew up strong as I tried to be
Everything you wanted, all you saw in me
But I feel I’ve failed and my strength is spent
Mother should I run…
For president

And with the world around crumbling every way
I wonder if it’s even worth the time of day
Who can I rely on, can my faith be lent
Mother should I trust…
The government

Well I’ve tried to hide and cover all my guilt
But those around me still can see the wall I’ve built
Will they cast me off and leave me dead to rights
Mother will they put me in…
The firing lights

Every time I rise and try to start again
I find the wall is stronger and I’m trapped within
Is there no redemption for a life of crime
Mother…
Is it just a waist of time

Hush now baby baby don’t you cry

Mama’s gonna keep you safe and warm
And cover you so you won’t ever feel the storm
She’ll hold you down so you don’t have to take the fall
Mama’s gonna help…
You build the wall

When I found the one who holds my heart
It seemed that for a moment I was worlds apart
From the pain but never trusting I just had to see
Mother do you think she’s good enough…
For me

As I fell in love there was no return
But as I opened up my heart I was afraid she’d learn
The secrets that I’ve kept, the man I used to be
Mother do you think she’s dangerous…
To me

It wasn’t how I planned it but as time went by
The wall began to form again as love ran dry
Each brick another dagger pierced into the heart
Mother will she tear your little boy…
Apart

Though she tried her best to reach me I was there to stay
And in a trance I watched her as she walked away
Is there really no way we can go back to the start
Mother…
Will she break my heart

Hush now baby baby don’t you cry

Mamma’s gonna tell you of who she approves
And keep out all the riff raff that just might slip through
She’ll make sure that you’re healthy and you’re always clean
Baby…
You’ll always be baby to me

Mother did it need to be so high
