everybody made my prediction, so if i get stoned...

tonight i found out that i am carrying on an old family tradition. i meant quite literally. my grandma told me that her daddy used to work at night, then my papa (grandpa) worked at night too, and that she recalls fitting household schedules around that. with C working her hours and with my name change, it is indeed not only a right of passage, but an official seal of approval that i am forging ahead on my correct path in life; i am following the footsteps of my great grandmother and my grandma. pretty freakin neat, if you ask me. i am the latest generation that keeps the lamp burning for my sweetheart.

"...lately some of my kin folks
have disowned a few others and me
i guess its because
i kinda changed my direction
i guess i went and broke the family tradition...
everybody made my prediction
so if i get stoned
I'm just carryin'
on an old family tradition"
