about

Mother knows best. Just ask Norman Bates.

lyrics

I….will follow your lead...
mother may
I…is this what I need?...
mother I…tried
to keep it inside
tried to be true
I tried to be you…
so tell me

Is this what you want for me?
a monster that they can't believe
all this blood is not for me
but this is what I've got to be

Just a freak of chemistry
victim of insanity
all this blood is not for me
but this is what I've got to be

I promise to always make you proud
welcome to the madhouse now!

there's something inside me
her words ring out so sweetly
I am my mother's way
I'm not myself today
I am my mother's home
this hand is not my own
Oh mother, so much blood
oh god, what have you done?

I….how can I be…
mother may
I…please set me free?…
mother I…tried
to keep you inside
I tried to be true
I tried to be you...
so help me

Is this what you want for me?
a monster that they can't believe
all this blood is not for me
but this is what I've got to be

Just a freak of chemistry
a victim of insanity
all this blood is not for me
but this is what I've got to be

I promise to always make you proud
welcome to the madhouse now!

there's something inside me
her words ring out so sweetly
I am my mother's way
I'm not myself today
I am my mother's home
this hand is not my own
Oh mother, so much blood
oh god, what have you done?

(BREAK)

there's something inside me
her words ring out so sweetly
I am my mother's way
I'm not myself today
I am my mother's home
this hand is not my own
Oh mother, so much blood
oh god, what have we done?
