Your mother came up to me,
She wanted answers only she should know,
Only she should know.
It wasn't easy to deal with the tears that rolled down her face.
I had no answers 'cause I didn't even know you.

But these words
They can't replace,
The life you,
The life you waste.

How could you paint this picture?
Was life as bad as it should seem, that there were no more options for you?
I can't explain how I feel.
I've been there many times before.
I've tasted the cold steel of my life crashing down before me.

But these words
They can't replace,
The life you,
The life you waste.

Did daddy not love you?
Or did he love you just too much?
Did he control you?
Did he live through you at your cost?
Did he leave no questions for you to answer on your own?

Well fuck them,
And fuck her,
And fuck him,
And fuck you,
For not having the strength in your heart to pull through.
I've had doubts,
I have failed,
I've fucked up,
I've had plans,
Doesn't mean I should take my life with my own hands.

But these words
They can't replace,
The life you,
The life you waste
But these words
They don't replace,
The life you,
The life you waste.
