    born of violence
    raised up outta the cryogens
    where life had frozen me
    ...silence draped over me

    bathed
    in the red stained banner
    of life's energies

    violence tortured me
    me...
    a product of treacherous beginnings
    dipped in great sinning
    stealing
    and
    killing my brothers
    endlessly
    one after another
    they fell

    violence bore me
    anger and frustration tore at me
    ...kept score of me
    lost in a web of deception
    ...so deep in false assumptions and misperceptions
    i could not think
    ...could not see

    where did the laughter go
    why did the happy times desert me
    why

    why is it not o'kay
    to say the words i say
    everyday
    i pay for the pain others cause
    coz
    the sins of my father
    are bound by my head
    'til dead

    violence

    (it) consumes me
    ...dooms me
    to a fate of non-conformity
