Mother Stands For Comfort

She knows that I've been doing something wrong,
But she won't say anything
She thinks that I was with my friends yesterday,
But she won't mind me lying,
Hmm, 'cause,

Mother stands for comfort.
Mother will hide the murderer

It breaks the cage, and fear escapes and takes possession,
Just like a crowd rioting inside
(Make me do this, make me do that, make me do this)
Make me do that
Am I the cat that takes the bird?
To her the hunted, not the hunter

Mother stands for comfort
Mother will hide the murderer
Hides the madman
Mother will stay mum
