CHORUS: dear mother, dear father;
what is this hell you have put me through?;
believer, deceiver;
day in day out live my life for you;
pushed onto me whats wrong or right;
hidden from this thing that they call life.

SECOND CHORUS: dear mother, dear father;
every thought i'd think you'd dissaprove;
curator, dictator;
always censoring my every move;
children are seen, but are not heard;
tear out everything inspired.

BRIDGE: innocence;
torn from me without your shelter;
barred reality;
im living blindly.

THIRD CHORUS: dear mother, dear father;
time has frozen, still whats left to be;
hear nothing, say nothing;
cannot face the fact i think for me;
no guarrentee it's life as is;
but damn you for not giving me my chance.

FOURTH CHORUS: dear mother, dear father;
clipped my wings before i learned to fly;
unspoiled, unspoken;
i've out-grown that fucking lullaby;
same thing i've always heard from you;
do as i say not as i do.

BRIDGE (AGAIN): innocence;
torn from me without your shelter;
barred reality;
im living blindly.

AFTER SOLO: im in hell without you;
cannot cope without you two;
shocked at the world that i see;
innocent victim, please rescue me.

OUTRO/FIFTH CHORUS: dear mother, dear father;
hidden in this world you've made for me;
im seething, im bleeding;
ripping wounds that never heal;
undying spite i feel for you;
living out this hell you always knew.

NO.
