lyrics

I think it’s time you know
How you’ve hurt me through the years
You ask me what you’ve done
I ask if you really care
You think I’ve held a grudge
Well it’s not quite like that
I kept my silence long enough
You confused my child mind

The truth was left untold
Until I could not turn away
It raped me from within
How it hurt the one I love
All the times I’ve asked for guidance, and you didn’t lend a hand
Trapped I felt around myself, but you didn’t give a damn

What was I to do when you didn’t help me
I thought a friend was supposed to care
Must have hurt your foolish pride

You think you’ve been so kind
Always done what’s right
Never hurt no one
Your son is hurt like no one else has ever done
I had nowhere to go
No place I’d feel safe
Did you see my pain is deep
It consumed my every day and held me down

All those years with no words
It’s like we had a conversation with our scarce communication
What’s the use of trying when you didn’t care
You don’t care
All those days I’d wake up
And I’d hope this day’s my last breath with you
Maybe my one death would show you
Why the fuck you’d put me through this anyway

You act as if I’m dead
And you push my corpse aside
When you see me you’re ashamed
Can’t carry on your name
You think I’ve held a grudge
Well it’s not quite like that
I kept my silence long enough
You confused my child mind

You think you’ve been so kind
Always done what’s right
Never hurt no one
Your son
Is hurt like no one else has ever done
I had nowhere to go
No place I’d feel safe
Did you see my pain
Is deep
It consumed my every day and held me down
