lyrics

Mother, Mother tell my why
Mother, Why not let me die?
Why bring me into this life?

Naked, Naked I came
Naked, Clothed and ashamed
Can't hide the scars and the pain

Rue the day
I was born
Close the womb and shut the doors
Why did your hands care for me?
Curse the night
I was conceived
Damn your breasts and damn your knees
I'd rather I stayed asleep
At rest with the ghosts and the kings

Mother, Mother who's to blame?
Mother, please answer me!
Why must I now feel this way?

Mother, Mother here I am
Mother, I'm barely a man
I've lost all that I ever had

about

Kyle Shevlin Portland, Oregon

While other bands and musicians waste their time writing songs about breakups, Kyle Shevlin is dedicated to writing songs of substance.

Singing with the aching heart of a man battered by time, Shevlin delivers with refreshing honesty.

His latest work, Your Lies Will Dig Your Grave, is a musical trek through the book of Job, and should not be listened to lightly.
