Monsters are Sleeping

I learned lies from my father
indifference from the world
karma from my girls and
thought i knew it all, but
then one day my mama said
sometimes the only choices
you have left
are bad ones

swallow those tears
seal that sweet melody
hit the good shit
watch the smoke curl
raise your hands
clap as one
Glory to the moon!
say your prayers
but not too loud
monsters are sleeping
under the bed

looking back on long ago
no one knows what they now know
i love you with what is left in my heart
there is a choice to be made
open the door,
yell at the night
so come on honey
be my squeeze
take one step cuz
never ain’t here yet
