Left Unfinished

Album: Through The Ashes of Empires (2003)
  • Why was I born?
    Sometimes I wish I didn't know
    Been times when
    I wish that I had just never been
    Why did you have me?
    Or better yet why'd you leave?
    So to the people that could fuck
    But then abandoned me

    I'll give to this world what you couldn't give
    Love the unwanted, every child born discarded
    Add to the flock
    The rejects you dumped on

    I'll never forget
    Life you disdain
    So to the parents that bore me this pain
    With all those things you left unfinished

    You never could love me
    I'm glad that you never did
    My parents that raised me
    Had plenty of that to give
    And for that
    I'll love them forever with all my heart
    But to you
    Don't let there be no mistake about it
    Fuck you, you cocksucker
    Fuck you, you whore
    I'll live my life the opposite of what you are

    Love will be my rock
    The rock that I stand on

    I'll never forget
    Life you disdain
    So to the parents that bore me this pain
    With all those things you left unfinished

    Don't try to reach out to me
    Don't try to call
    The boy that you created
    Is dead for all you fucking know
    You just pretend you've never heard or seen
