I once wrote a letter to an estranged family member, and then burned it. My early years were marked by the destructive tendencies of just such a person, and I suppose I'll never recover—I doubt he'll recover either. This song is exposed—it's real. Does anyone really love you? Some of this is statement. Some of this is question. They are equally sincere.


Some people don't start aging
Until it's too late
to fully recover
What's been lost and destroyed.

Some turn 16, and never get a day past it.
Nothin much hasn't changed.

You didn't have to
take it out on me.
All I ever wanted
was someone
Someone to look up to.

We become most what we hate--and can't beat
And since I couldn't beat you I became you instead.

Our dysfunctions are fed by
Familial presence. They coddle
And bribe with cursed assurance.

Does anyone really love you?
If they can't tell you when you're wrong
Do you know for sure
that anybody really loves you?

If you were scared, you never said a thing.
And if you hated me, I don't know what I've done.

I found darkness
I know you have too.

We'll all find darkness
I just wanted
to laugh at it with you.

Does anyone really love you.
Does anyone really love you.
Does anyone really love you.
Do you even love yourself?
