Abandoner,

This child you leave behind

Will only know of you

From lies

Outspoken,

Nothing to lie against,

No strength to hold

Redefined

Crawl through another lifetime,

Wade deeper through denial

Runaway,

Runaway

Hold back paternal instincts,

Your flesh and failures cry

Runaway,

Runaway

Oh, liar

Holding heavy all these years

Bitterness

Burns so deep

Our father,

Who hides away to change his face,

The system fails

She cries herself to sleep

Crawl through another lifetime,

Wade deeper through denial

Runaway,

Runaway

Hold back paternal instincts,

Your flesh and failures cry

Runaway,

Runaway

Abandoner

Abandon her,

Speak only in paper, liar

Live only in memories, failure

Abandon her,

Abandoner

Live like nothing, failure

Die as nothing, liar
