Daughter Lyrics

you guys ready...
alone... listless... breakfast table in an otherwise empty room
young girl... violins... center of her own attention
mother reads aloud, child tries to understand it
tries to make her proud
the shades go down, it's in her head
painted room... can't deny there's something wrong...
don't call me daughter, not fit to
the picture kept will remind me
don't call me daughter, not fit to
the picture kept will remind me
don't call me...
she holds the hand that holds her down
she will... rise above...
don't call me daughter, not fit to
the picture kept will remind me
don't call me daughter, not fit to be
the picture kept will remind me
don't call me...
don't call me daughter, not fit to
the picture kept will remind me
don't call me daughter, not fit to be
the picture kept will remind me
don't call me...
the shades go down
the shades go down
the shades go, go, go...

i think that this song is about a daughter who was raped by a parent, not really a positive song, but sexual violence happens and about 20 percent of the cases are reported

@Damien G I know the predicament! I just wanted to say we live in a very unforgiving world! We as a human race need to change it for each other!

Daughter was the first PJ song that I heard coz I bought v's first. I'm thirty and still living at home with my parents. It can be battle to find my own direction. I'm thankful for their love and kind
