I’m Restrained by Jeff Oliver

Hey mother, who are you?

Your eyes see in me

Everything that’s wrong

Hey father, where are you?

Never cared to see me smile

I was not enough


In my soul, I feel I failed you

Now it’s as cold as a stone!


If I could erase the pain

Could I hide the shame?

You’re the reason

I’m restrained!


If I could make all the sense

I’d climb that barbed wire fence

You’re the reason

I’m Restrained!


Hey brother,

You don’t know me

Wish we could have grown up

By each other’s side

Hey sister,

You won’t know me

Chances are you never knew me to exist



From a child

And now I’m grown

I have grown as cold as stone!


If I could erase the pain

Could I hide the shame?

I’m restrained!

So Damn Strange!
