Sebadoh /

Sister

Damned if I do, and damned if I don't
I told you I loved you, I wish that I hadn't
And you don't seem the same
I guess I know you too well
I knew I was falling, but I didn't know
How low I fell

Sister, oh sister
Who told you these lies?
I don't have time
To teach what it should be like
To pull you from this, child

You don't smell the stink
But you might have felt the bed
You think I'm all yours
And I wish that I was dead
The words were not your own
It was something your mother said
Umbilical blood line, mind control by the whining chest

Sister oh sister
I thought it'd be nice
That thing I felt when we first met
Just will not suffice
The glimmer in your eyes

I love you, sister
I love how you condescend
I thought so, sister
But I cannot pretend
It's hard to believe this blood
This isn't healthy love
It's hard to believe this love
This isn't healthy blood

Sister, oh, sister
You thought you were so wise
A judgmental vision coming from the blindest eye
A look that you define
