Stuck in the ground in the undershadow of a tree
there was a seed with the rest of the world underneath
'why cant I see all the things up there you get to see?'
I'm Guilty

Although I'm tall I am nothing to the feathers
'if I stay here then I'll never see the weather
and I believe that the view up there can be for me
now I've seen you were once hidden like me'

I never saw my feet become the ground
thanks to the ones I kept around
our deadbeat minds cross border lines
chasing the good life

all the makeshift beds cradle thumping heads

this ain't fantasy
this is family
when the days get to heavy
they are the ones that carry me

this ain't fantasy
this is family
it's a love you couldn't sever
we stand together

when I carry a torch
deep down in memory lane
back to when life was fading away

I was a destructive kid
who heard tales of ambition
we weren't getting off that midnight street
where I prophecised freedom
I thought I'd wait for the end
'its just death, it will one day save me'

where would I stand now
if all your lives were gone
all I fear is the end

this ain't fantasy
this is my family
they are the ones that carry me

this ain't fantasy
this is my family
and we'll always be brothers
for the days you gave me
