Please don't suffer god just make it quick
With all you've had you don't know what it takes to beg
You've lost your cause lost your time to kill
You won't matter much when they've all got their fill

Mothers teach you to crawl, Fathers teach you to rise or fall
Mothers grieve for us all, Fathers teach you you're on your own
I won't quiver I won't squirm or sweat
Your heart's not gone but you've got nothing to make a fist
Sooner or later I'll just flip the switch
Forget what you did or you won't know how to face this hell

Mothers teach you to crawl, Fathers teach you to rise or fall
Mothers grieve for us all, Fathers teach you to take it on

All my fears awakening I've let them back
All this flashed before my eyes I'd never had
Words no consolation, none will suffice
Walk my son I've taught you well you're on your way down

Fuck the past I hope it goes well
You're gonna lie with your curse as you made it
They're coming fast and you got nothing left to sell
You never saw with your cause there's a conscience
In the end you've got no answers
You're gonna lie with your curse as you made it
So much pain here you don't know how to take my hand
You never saw with your cause there's a conscience

Mothers teach you to crawl, Fathers teach you to rise or fall
There's no dream for us all, never see what you're reaching for
Mothers teach you to crawl, Fathers teach you you're on your own
Mothers teach you, take what you will

Bang you're alive
Bang you're alive
Bang you're alive
Bang you're alive
