Saviour of mankind
Never let me see the suffering that I already know exists
Hide me away from civilisation
Is it because you're ashamed?
That I turned out the way I did
Or is it because you don't want me here?
I know what's out there
If you're plastic coating was to protect me
It made the whole ordeal much, much worse.
I know about the war, I know about starvation
I know about depression
And how it ruins someone's world.
I can see your pills all lined up in a row
Ready to swallow all ready to take
The blades you have used
Don't frighten me
I clear up after you and clean up all the blood
I try my hardest to make things better
But when I lye their alone, at night
With thoughts of this futile existence running through my head
I start to think.
You shouldn't be allowed to keep me
You pretend that you protect me
You wrap me up and keep me locked away to keep your sanity
I'm not a perfect daughter
I'll never be a perfect bride
But you're not a perfect mother
You'll never be a perfect "saviour of mankind."
