  • Mother I really hate the way your treat me like no other
    And I refuse to be your victim!

    I count the days and nights they are all numbered
    She takes her time and hurts me like no other
    Keep it all inside, never see me cry
    Hoping I find a way out from "The Mother"
    Please god don't let her destroy my life

    Mother I really hate the way your treat me like no other
    And I refuse to be your victim you won't see me cry 'cause
    I left behind a child called it

    She makes me stay inside under her cover
    Takes out her pain on me and not my brothers
    Keep it all inside never see me cry
    Hoping I find a way out from "The Mother"
    One step close and the world is mine

    Mother I really hate the way your treat me like no other
    And I refuse to be your victim
    Mother what have I done to make you upset I'm in trouble
    And I'm too young to know your weakness you're so sick and you'll never miss a child called it

    I count my days and nights they are all numbered
    She takes her time and hurts me like no other

    Tell me why you were so unkind?
    You're so sick and you'll never miss a child called it
    A child called it!
