Stay Together for the Kids |

I was listening to my ipod today while I was running some new coax cable (more on this later). As usual I had it on set to shuffle. After about 15 minutes, Blink 182’s “Stay Together for the Kids” came up. Given my family’s current situation it seemed eerily fitting.

Lyrics:
It’s hard to wake up
When the shades have been pulled shut
This house is haunted
It’s so pathetic
It makes no sense at all.
I’m ripe with things to say
The words rot and fall away.
If a stupid poem could fix this home
I’d read it every day.

So here’s your holiday
Hope you enjoy it this time
You gave it all away
It was mine
So when you’re dead and gone
Will you remember this night, twenty years now lost.
It’s not right

Their anger hurts my ears
Been running strong for seven years
Rather than fix the problems, they never solve them
It makes no sense at all
I see them every day
We get along so why can’t they?
If this is what he wants and this is what
she wants
Then why is there so much pain?

So here’s your holiday
Hope you enjoy it this time
You gave it all away
It was mine
So when you’re dead and gone
Will you remember this night, twenty years now lost
It’s not right

So here’s your holiday
Hope you enjoy it this time
You gave it all away
It was mine
So when you’re dead and gone
Will you remember this night, twenty years now lost
It’s not right.
