[Intro: Nate Reuss]
 Mom, I know I let you down
 And though you say the days are happy
 Why is the power off, and I'm fucked up?
 And mom, I know he's not around
 But don't you place the blame on me
 As you pour yourself another drink
[Hook: Nate Reuss]
 I guess we are who we are
 Headlights shining in the dark night on.
Maybe we took this too far
[Verse 1: Eminem]
 I went in headfirst
Never thinking about who what I said hurt, in what verse
My mom probably got it the worst
The brunt of it, but as stubborn as we are
Did I take it too far?
"Cleaning Out My Closet" and all them other songs
But regardless I don't hate you 'cause, Ma,
You're still beautiful to me, 'cause you're my mom
Though far be it from you to be calm, our house was Vietnam
Desert Storm and both of us put together can form an atomic bomb equivalent to Chemical warfare
And forever we can drag this on and on
But, agree to disagree
That gift from me up under the Christmas tree don't mean shit to me
You're kicking me out? It's 15 degrees and it's Christmas Eve (little prick just leave)
Ma, let me grab my fucking coat, anything to have each other's goats
Why we always at each other's throats?
Especially when dad, he fucked us both
We're in the same fucking boat, you'd think that it'd make us close (nope)
Further away it drove us, but together headlights shine, a car full of belongings
Still got a ways to go, back to grandma's house it's straight up the road
And I was the man of the house, the oldest, so my shoulders carried the weight of the load
Then Nate got taken away by the state at eight years old,
And that's when I realized you were sick and it wasn't fixable or changeable
And to this day we remained estranged and I hate it though, but

 I guess we are who we are
 Headlights shining in the dark night I drive on
 Maybe we took this too far
[Verse 3: Nate Reuss]
 I want a new life
 One without a cause
 So I'm coming home tonight
 No matter what the cost
 And if the plane goes down
 And if the crew can't wake me up
 Just know that I was alright
 And I was not afraid to die
 Even if there's songs to sing
 My children will carry me
 Just know that I'm
 I was not afraid to die
 Because I put my faith in my new girl
 So I never say goodbye cruel world
 Just know that I'm alright
 I am not
 Afraid to die
 I guess we are who we are
 Headlights shining in the dark night I drive on
 Maybe we took this too far
