Lyrics by Mustaine

Forgotten things remembered
The tigers eat their young
The body stayed but inside the head
The mind was on the run
A conspiracy of silence
The only way out of pain
Is turn around, run through it man
Too wet to come in from the rain,
Tell them...

I know they were doing it to you
But don't try doing it to me

Let me show you, how I love you
It's our secret, you and me
Let me show you how I love you
But keep it in the family tree
The secret of the family tree

When you hear them saying "trust me"
Don't wait to see what's next
Thrown to the wolves
Forever trusting
Raised in a form of living hell
Sing a one note song of rage
Live and die within your heart
So beware in the shadows

Your family tree waits in the dark
I say...

    This to me means that every family has their secrets and sometimes people don't want to tell them about them cause they might seem a little weird. But on the other hand it also could mean that they love them a lot and are willing to show them everything.
