"it still lives on"

"bruises fade brother, but the pain remains the same
and i still remember how you kept me so afraid
strength is my lover for all the love he gave
every morning that i wake i look back at yesterday

i often wonder why i carry all this guilt
when it's you that helped me put up all these walls i've built
shadows stir at night through a crack in the door
the echo of a broken child screaming "please no more"
brother, don't you understand the damage you have done

to you it's just a memory, but for me it still lives on.."
