Mother's Getting Weaker Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Tonight would be the last night that we had our tea
That bloody tea, which sent us into ecstasy
Yesterday Mother complained, feeling dizzy, all in pain
Verse 2
Mother's getting weaker, looking paler day by day
Verse 3
As morning came, she could not make it out of bed
And Grandma's spell was getting straight into her head
Not a single word, she didn't seem to be alive
Verse 4
Getting weaker, looking paler day by day
Verse 5
Then Missy came in and she led me by the hand
I didn't want to go, Oh but I should have known
Mother was barely conscious, why should I care
Just looking forward to the next ordeal
Verse 6
I think I heard My sister begging me to stay
She gave me the phone, so I could call someone for help
I simply let go of her hand, then I cut the wire
Verse 7
Missy was crying as I left them both behind
And Mother's getting weaker, Missy shouted at
My back "I hate you"
