lyrics

Well, i was raised in a broken home,
my mother's blood decorated the walls,
grew up with so much hate inside my chest,
a heartless kid trying to forget,
the times he knocked her down
with a single swing,
how I always wished
I was strong enough,
to stand agaisnt the
piece of shit he was,
a way to offer her a peaceful life….

Yet you come around
19 years later,
saying "you found god"
thinking it will be any better,
and expecting me to reply
with "I love you" forget it,
all you will ever get from me
is nothing close to what you expect it to be.


I had the perfect motives
to feel like this
and if there's one more thing
I've ever learned from this,
is that I will never treat
my family
like he treated his.


Yet you come around
19 years later,
saying "you found god"
thinking it will be any better,
and expecting me to reply
with "I love you" forget it,
all you will ever get from me
is nothing close to what you expect it to be.

Did you feel like a man when she was crying on her knees?
did you feel like a man when she couldn't even breath?
were you proud that
at his last resort
your 5 year old son
couldn't take it anymore
in the end
he would grab a kitchen knife
to protect his mom ?

Im so ashamed of living my life, knowing i'm the product of your kind of man, Im so tired from this lack of sleep,
when i close my eyes I could hear her scream.
