lyrics

INTRO:
The day is here
The hour near
Today’s my birthday
Everyone is here
Don’t let yourself be deceived
Nothing’s as perfect as it seems…

CHORUS:
In this family everything is nothing
And to speak your mind a crime
But everybody will tell you otherwise
And hide behind their crooked,
Their crooked old smile

VERSE 1:
See my sister who can cook a meal
Looking all perfect, like she doesn’t care
She says “I will never find a man”
(She’s too hard to understand)
But behind those pretty almond eyes
A whole lot of envy lies.

VERSE 4:
By the fireplace is Grandpa Beau
To whom no one never ever can say “no”
He thinks himself the perfect patriarch
(He’ll be dead by March)
We are supposed to feel sorry he’s ill
But all we really want is to read his will…
His Will!

CHORUS:
So in this family everything is nothing
And to speak your mind a crime
But everybody will tell you otherwise
And hide behind their crooked
Their crooked old smile

VERSE 1:
For example, let’s take that woman there
She’s my good aunt Madeleine
Whom takes these pills much too often
(Still her face won’t soften)
Dreams at night of her lost true love
Of him cheating and going far away from home…

VERSE 2:
Back that corner you can find uncle Al
He’s got charm and an expensive car
He’s started singing at the top of his lungs
(Everybody whispers “drunk”)
Every day he comes undone
For he can’t stand to be alone
Alone!
CHORUS:
So in this family everything is nothing
And to speak your mind a crime
But everybody will tell you otherwise
And hide behind their crooked
Their crooked old smile

OUTRO:
The day is here
The hour near
Today’s my birthday
Everyone is here
Still you wonder why the scream…?
