Fed to Death

Album: Say Anything (2009)

  • There was a man from Allentown
    Who fed his son to death.
    He calmly watched him gorge himself
    Until his final breath.

    And there he stood surprised and shocked
    Above his tiny frame.
    He said "I bear no blame for this;
    I only share his name!"

    There was a man from Nazareth
    The fools at war pervert.
    They forged an image of his flesh
    To brand on mugs and t-shirts.

    They say one day he'll spring to life
    To smile and clear your name,
    So nail yourself upon the cross
    And hang your head in shame

    Forever.
    This is forever.
    This is forever.
    This is forever.
    This is forever. Writer/s: MAX BEMIS
