The Apple Never Rots Far From The Tree (Family Tree)
Written by Zach Redrup

Same scene every night,
These wars of words, a daily routine,
Pierce some hole through this lid,
I need some more space,
Some more time to breathe,

This is starting to get old,
This is starting to get old,
This is starting to get old,
It's getting oh so old,

There is a wide palate here,
Everything holds its own colour,
Blackened eyes, reddened fists,
And but one smirk in the room,

This is starting to get old,
This is starting to get old,
This is starting to get old,
It's getting oh so old,

Lighting the detenation fuse again,
Explosion in this atmosphere,
I'm getting used it,
I never thought I'd get used to it,

But the young silohette in the corner,
Begins to shake cold,
If it is indeed passed down each generation,
Then he'll soon be the latest victim,
Like it or not,

They're found in a fetal position,
They're found in a fetal position,
Every inch is cut and bruised,
He was being spectated, dying in pain,

Laughter ends this scenario,
"When they ask how I felt afterwards" he said,
"Tell them the truth, I laughed in triumph."

I like the title and I'm pretty sure you're talking about how children that view spousal abuse soon find themselves become abusers when they get older....if so, it never really says that. It never really tells a story until the last verse. It's a really strong idea but that idea isn't strong enough in the lyrics. As an example, I think Blink 182's "Stay together for the kids" is a really strong song based around a similar kind of idea.

Well, basically it is about domestic abuse upon children.
And then the child begins to get used to it because it is occuring on such a regular basis.
With this happening, the child is likely to grow up just like his Father.
And the Father has abused their younger sibling so much so that he has infact murdered them.
Then as it tells in the final verse, he is actually happy about commiting such an act.
