about

Any relationship where one person has to take care of another person is bound to eventually eat them away. The sweet relief comes from the moments of freedom that you have when your mind is unburdened and when you achieve those moments, it's a feeling that you never want to lose, but it's all too fleeting.

Knowing someone that's mentally ill or with Alzheimer's or another kind of disease is taxing and can overwhelm any kind of caregiver, no matter how much you love the person. Feeling trapped breeds thoughts full of guilt and pain and the momentary freedom that comes through sleep or substances often leads to a wish for a more permanent kind of relief, whether it be for themselves or the ones they're trying to take care of.

lyrics

I'm just a puppet in your hands,
a slave to your demands,
too terrified to live life on my own.
Soldier for your affection,
doll in your collection,
but you've got a mind I'll never know.

Sweet relief,
why can't you stay?
Just a moment longer.
Sweet relief,
your smile I'll save.

Tied to my purse,
the martyr's curse,
tangled in the Cat's Cradle of your plan.
Spend all night on a call,
debating nothing at all,
thinking I can save what no one else can.

Sweet relief,
why can't you stay?
Just a moment longer.
Sweet relief,
your smile I'll save.
The vampires that prey on my conscience,
will trade my goodwill for my common sense.
Sweet relief,
why can't you stay?

And this resolve is gone,
the eggshells I've been walking on.
Can I carry on?
Can I carry on?
When this freedom is gone,
can I carry on?
Being your servant and your boy,
your trifle and your toy,
drained until all that's left of me is a void.

Sweet relief,
why can't you stay?
Just a moment longer.
Sweet relief,
your smile I'll save.
The vampires that prey on my conscience,
will trade my goodwill for my common sense.
Sweet relief,
why can't you stay?
