Unfaithful backstabbing coward
I'm fucking sick of all the lies and all the treachery
I was always by your side and this is how you repay me
And after all these years you fucking turned your back on me
I can't believe I ever considered you family
I will never forget this knife you placed in my back
Recreant
Say it to my face
No more fucking games
This is where you pay
Recreant
Step the fuck back and just bleed
You're a worthless gutless pig
Now you'll see that I'm not just something you can fucking cast aside
My whole life I stood right by your side
You fucking hypocrite
You make it seem like it was my fault
You lied
Don't forget I know exactly what you did
I'm fucking sick of all the lies and all the treachery
I was always by your side and this is how you repay
And after all these years you fucking turned your back on me?
I can't believe I ever considered you family
I will never forget this knife you placed in my back
Recreant
Say it to my face
No more fucking games
This is where you play
Recreant
You are dead to me

    This song has nothing to do with abuse. To me it sounds like hes talking about a girl that he was with for a long time (possibly marriage "I ever considered you family") And after all of this time she cheated on him / stabbed him in the back and tried to make it seem like it was his fault, and now hes forsaking her or getting revenge.

    This exactly explains my girlfriend's father. Abusive to her during her whole life, and this basically depicts my girlfriend's feelings towards him.

    People, the song is about how he was betrayed by a so-called friend, someone that he respected, and who's secrets he kept with him through his loyalty. He knew that this "friend" did something horrible, and his friend backstabbed him. What he's saying is that his friend will get what's coming to him, and he'll regret everything because he'll be alone.

    I think it's about being cheated on. And the girl kept lying and playing these games. She made everyone think that you're the one to blame. All you did was treat her like royalty. She claims to not know what she is but she knows damn well what she did. It's happened to me. I can relate and i get it.
