lyrics

I still give my all,

in a life that's always let me down.
I've learnt it's "sink or swim",
and I've come too far to drown.

But this weight drags me deeper and deeper.

The future's bleak, the world's getting weaker.
We are the poison that seeps through its heart,
and I've been hopeless since you turned your fucking back on me.
There's no infecting what's been poisoned from the start.

Scars fade, but memories stay the same.
and no matter how hard I try, I will always remember,
that you're the one to blame.

Tell me,
How can you leave behind,
your responsibilities?
The choices that you made in life.
Left with no hand to hold and no voice to guide.

You call yourself a man,
but do you recall what it meant,
to be a father, and only teach his son torment.
Raised in fear.

So now I'm cold,
My blood freezes over.
Your cold-shoulder to the fact I'm growing older,
You've never shown your face.
No more a man than a fucking disgrace.

Tell me,
How can you leave behind,
your responsibilities?
The choices that you made in life.
Left with no hand to hold and no voice to guide.

and it pains me to bear your name.
the only place i'll carry this,
is to the grave.
I'll no longer live in shame.
The footsteps you left won't be the path that I take.

and I'm still right here,
I'll bite my tongue,
'cos I have waited all my life.

and I'm still right here,
I'll bite my tongue,
'cos I have waited all my life.

I savour all of the hate,
and given the chance to come face to face,
I swear,
I'd tear yours off and leave you for dead.
I'll show you abandonment.
