Chelsea Wolfe - The Mother Road Lyrics



The Mother Road Lyrics - Chelsea Wolfe

[Verse 1]
Took the mother road
Down to goddess flesh
I swallowed the key
I want to learn to swallow my pain
Hallowed the fruit, hallowed thy name

[Chorus]
Guess I needed something to break me
Guess I needed something to shake me up
Guess I needed someone to break me
Guess I needed someone to shake me out

[Verse 2]
Afraid to live, afraid to die
Building a broken but precious web
Like a spider in Chernobyl
And when the cattle low
Something is on the horizon

[Pre-Chorus]
I do not have a child
But I'm old enough to know some pain
And I'm hell-bent on loving you
Women know what it is to endure

[Chorus]
Guess I needed something to break me
Guess I needed something to shake me up
Guess I needed someone to break me
Guess I needed someone to shake me out

[Post-Chorus]
It was you
It was you

[Bridge]
Bloom and eclipse them, wake up and transform
Bloom and eclipse them, wake up and transform
Bloom and eclipse them, wake up and transform
Bloom and eclipse them, wake up and transform
Bloom and eclipse them, wake up and transform
Bloom and eclipse them, wake up and transform
Bloom and eclipse them, wake up and transform
Bloom and eclipse them, wake up and transform

[Outro]
Guess I needed something to break me
