Born Rotten 03:13
9 months passed, water went She's crying Lord as it chokes on the umbilical Cord "Push, almost there" "I was born for this" Doesn't matter she was born rotten Born hanged & ugly infants forgotten Burning underground and "angels" who got in Bitter feelings for the rich. The end doesn't matter for the ugly & rotten Scars, snakes and 8 legged freaks No young with direction, no morals, no lesson. Ruthless mistakes fermented on grapes He choked on the wine, it ended with rape Born hanged & ugly infants forgotten burning underground and "angels" who got in bitter feelings for the rich The end doesn't matter for the ugly & rotten Doesn't matter she was born rotten Doesn't matter she was born rotten Doesn't matter she was born rotten (Born rotten) Born hanged & ugly infants forgotten burning underground and "angels" who got in bitter feelings for the rich The end doesn't matter for the ugly & rotten 9 months passed, water went She's crying Lord as it chokes on the umbilical Cord "Push, almost there".

No hope for miscarriage Just worthless disparage / dads without courage Proposal isn't marriage. Just empty words like garbage How Gates "never went to college". My hate of past mistakes incarnate A long time coming for me (Saw it there all along, I should've known) Not here to suffer, not here to die, here to survive, I'm here to find Direction (But I won't) Lifelines / Cut short We only ever settle, stride is never pleasant Blame it on depression. It's all about expression, never cared to question Cause we're all so "special". No hope for miscarriage Just worthless disparage / dads without courage Proposal isn't marriage. Just empty words like garbage How Gates "never went to college". No morals, no models except those found in each other. A mirror in a room with no light shows us just what we are; Lost in the night / Always too late Floodgates & pigs in the open Withering youth / Sex & abortion "Just stay alive and young forever" "let me drift alone, whatever" No hope for miscarriage Just worthless disparage / dads without courage. Proposal isn't marriage. Just empty words like garbage How Gates "never went to college".

Another day, no sancturay Confronting this reality stings Everybody dressed in orange but me It's hunting season when the bell rings Flickering stares, don't know where to go One foot in front of the other, till we're on again Can't feel my legs as the race begins Till the gravel meets my skin "scared? Hurt?" Fuck no like ever "Cry? cry?" No, like What so ever gash, bash, stomp paint the sky red for seconds Let them hang by the tether While they're gasping for mother I hope you bleed out and shiver (While you're grasping for cover) And I punch and you quiver Your years of turning many against none These hands are burning up to avenge some looser child with a big nose so runny chased around by that fat fucking dummy little victim with a sad shrieking Story, ha' Now they cry for me "funny", ha' Now they got me cornered Imma get them back Got black eyes turning red and a carte blanch Got a strong arm and an olive branch Now it's bloody Now it's rotten Now it's all quiet, now I gottem Sure, pull me away, I did what i had to do The sum of everything you would've done to me to "scared? Hurt?" - fuck no like ever I'm done, let them hang by the tether "scared? Hurt?" Fuck no like ever "Cry? cry?" No, like What so ever gash, bash, stomp paint the sky red for seconds Let them hang by the tether While they're gasping for mother I hope you bleed out and shiver (While you're grasping for cover) And I punch and you quiver Your years of turning many against none These hands are burning up to avenge some

They scream and it tears through the chest God it Hurts the way they hug us to death "you never cared, jesus give it a rest" desperate crying; only "love" that is left. Only "love" that is left. Weary mind & awfull child No remorse for the hardships so much for trying "Put my feelings to rest" cracked up windows, rotten house filthy gardens with broken cars secluded rooms & freezing nights empty place, empty comfort God it Hurts the way they hug us to death "you never cared, jesus give it a rest" desperate crying; only "love" that is left. Only "love" that is left. Weary mind & awfull child No remorse for the hardships so much for trying "Put my feelings to rest" "Put my feelings to rest" "Put my feelings to rest" cracked up windows, rotten house filthy gardens with broken cars secluded rooms & freezing nights empty place, empty comfort they scream and it tears through the chest God it Hurts the way they hug us to death "you never cared, jesus give it a rest" desperate crying; only "love" that is left. Weary mind & awfull child No remorse for the hardships so much for trying "put my feelings to rest" "put my feelings to rest" "put my feelings to rest"

So what? No reason begging, clenching fists and fending? (feel tension) No end in sight no mending to reach It's not the first time this is all we do together Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you Sweaty shaking fingers and palms, can't unlock the phone Danger when she lingers in his arms, not safe in this home, never No cover, he knows No sleep when he's close It's ruthless, Domestic, abusive, Resisting is useless Theres's no place to run Keeping me up at night frightened of the next fight Sweaty shaking fingers and palms, can't unlock the phone Danger when she lingers in his arms, not safe in this home Never You wanted a fight, well you caught me in a bad mood I’m a bad motherfucker, let nobody pass through I fry motherfuckers like slingin’ out fast food “That’s not what I meant” Well nobody asked you All up in my face with the face that you make, when you try to make me understand what’s going on in your brain Newsflash I’m not the Oracle But I can get your ass down to the hospital Because no matter what I do, it’s never good enough for you, the kind of motherfucker label everything impossible Hollow is the motto, doing everything for dollars let me give you the definition of when something’s really horrible Fuck the past, I’m a man of the moment But a jealous motherfucker be like daggers and cloaks Then Said you had my back when it mattered the most And Now you wanna see me staggin’ all battered and choked You’re on very thin ice, grab a life jacket While going down a whole like a white rabbit When I Hijack it, lightning rapid You’re facing the Atlantic, titanic I’ve had it Cry havoc Die tragic Die tragic

If there's something I loathe and something that I love It's thinking of.. In the back of my mind Sending shivers down my spine It was never the drugs or the alcohol Or careless sex in the night It was only you It was only you I could never forget Clear skies, long days and good friends Stuck in fading memories I could never forget But I guess that you have Stuck in the way It's lights out under the weight Bound to bittersweet memories, better days and remedies These hurdles are too high I slip as I try As I keep thinking of.. In the back of my mind Sending shivers down my spine It was never the drugs or the alcohol Or careless sex in the night I could never forget Clear skies, long days and good friends Stuck in fading memories I could never forget But I guess that you have Under gray skies lost in the evergreen Of when we were seventeen For now we're just lost in dreams Those issues gone along with the spirit It's still there for those who will it But I'm still lost in these dreams We all carry boulders She wept as I told her I carry mine all of the time You showed me yours and as I'm down on all fours They still hang on, they still hang on I could never forget Clear skies, long days and good friends Stuck in fading memories I could never forget But I guess that you have

She sobs and binges away on love Ironic how she's looking for a dove They came and left, she always believed the tales & truths, they always deceived They came and left, she always believed The hurt she grieve, It's all about her I choke on dying forgiveness left with Godforsaken hate "Ma, I'm not coming home tonight" They're broken records stuck on needles pushing right unlawful hell and sorrow left with hearts so hollow sons with souls as shallow caged in Horror They came and left, she always believed the tales & truths, they always deceived She sobs and binges away on love ironic how she's looking for a dove I choke on dying forgiveness left with Godforsaken hate "Ma , I'm not coming home tonight" They're broken records stuck on needles pushing right Pushing for your will to give it up Squeezing you dry, you can't stop Needs over goals, you're money over power At the end of your road they'll just find another Leading us into the dark, alone and shaking In this ditch, godforsaken unlawful hell and sorrow left with hearts so hollow sons with soul as shallow No love for sparrows caged in Horror Needs over goals, you're money over power At the end of your road, they'll just find another Needs over goals, you're money over power At the end of your road, they'll just find another Needs over goals, you're money over power At the end of your road, they'll just find another I choke on dying forgiveness left with Godforsaken hate "Ma , I'm not coming home tonight" They're broken records stuck on needles pushing right They came and left, she always believed the tales & truths, they always deceived They came and left, she always believed The hurt she grieve, It's all about her

Worries turning joys to doubt Death is all I think about I've watched my days turn gray I still think of the future, but in a different way Torn heart, soul split up in pieces No thoughts but a death wish I’m fucking obsessed with no fucking rest Asendin and Desyrel don’t fucking work it feels like hell I guess I’ll rot Worries turning joys to doubt Death is all I think about I’ve watched my days turn gray I still think of the future, but in a different way I know this won’t fade away The problem I can’t solve in any way Imagining the impact Is this bridge to low? Will I fall hard enough? I need to know Imagining the impact Is this bridge to low? If I fall hard enough Mom needs to know Why It’s all a tragedy from start to finish So fucking drown it down with pints and spirits 3 AM and the crowd goes home I’m venting vomit fucking crying all alone Worries turning joys to doubt Death is all I think about I've watched my days turn gray I still think of the future, but in a different way I'm fucking obsessed with no fucking rest Asendin and Desyrel don't fucking work it feels like hell
