about

"Estrangement" explores the relationship with an aging parent, growing older, the pain of life, and the distance between us. With emotional lyrics ordinarily lending themselves to an acoustic arrangement, here it is expressed in a tumultuous explosion of drums and guitar.

Estrangement (lyrics)

You stand by the door
Watching as I pull away
Age running like a line
Up through you, down through me

The sadness in your eyes
Matches the sadness in mine
Though they’re nowhere near
Being the same thing

We have the same eyes,
but we’re as different as people can be

When it’s all over
And I’m on this earth alone
I’ll feel it inside
But I’ll never let it show
I keep you at a distance
You keep me no less close
An ordinary estrangement
Passed down to me as you go

I help you these days
Small things to make it easy
Conversations mean nothing at all
Row the boat gently downstream

I edge beyond the age
Childless it seems
None of the burdens or the rewards
No one to grow up like me

We’d have the same eyes,
but we’d be as different as people can be

When it’s all over
And I’m on this earth alone
I’ll feel it inside
But I’ll never let it show
I keep you at a distance
You keep me no less close
An ordinary estrangement
Passed down to me as you go
