Lyrics

New blood joins this earth
And quickly heís subdued
Through constant pained disgrace
The young boy learns their rules

With time, the child draws in
This whipping boy done wrong
Deprived of all his thoughts
The young man struggles on and on, heís known
A vow unto his own
That never from this day
His will theyíll take away

What Iíve felt
What Iíve known
Never shined through in what Iíve shown
Never be
Never see
Wonít see what might have been

What Iíve felt
What Iíve known
Never shined through in what Iíve shown
Never free
Never me
So I dub thee Unforgiven

They dedicate their lives
To running all of his
He tries to please them all
This bitter man he is

Throughout his life the same
Heís battled constantly
This fight he cannot win
A tired man they see no longer cares
The old man then prepares
To die regretfully
That old man here is me

What Iíve felt
What Iíve known
Never shined through in what Iíve shown
Never be
Never see
Wonít see what might have been

What Iíve felt
What Iíve known
Never shined through in what Iíve shown
Never free
Never me
So I dub thee Unforgiven

You labeled me
Iíll label you
So I dub thee Unforgiven
