Dear Mother
Dear Father
What is this hell you have put me through
Day in, day out, live my life through you
Pushed onto me whatís wrong or right
Hidden from this thing that they call life

Dear Mother
Dear Father
Every thought Iíd think youíd disapprove
Always censoring my every move
Children are seen but are not heard
Tear out everything inspired

Torn from me without your shelter
Barred reality
Iím living blindly

Dear Mother
Dear Father
Time has frozen still whatís left to be
Hear nothing
Say nothing
Cannot face the fact I think for me
No guarantee, itís life as is
But damn you for not giving me my chance

Dear Mother
Dear Father
Youíve clipped my wings before I learned to fly
Iíve outgrown that fucking lullaby
Same thing Iíve always heard from you
Do as I say, not as I do

Torn from me without your shelter
Barred reality
Iím living blindly

Iím in hell without you
Cannot cope without you two
Shocked at the world that I see
Innocent victim please rescue me

Dear Mother
Dear Father
Hidden in your world youíve made for me
Iím seething
Iím bleeding
Ripping wounds in me that never heal
Undying spite I feel for you
Living out this hell you always knew
