To my Mother
To my Father
It's your son or
It's your daughter
Are my screams
Loud enough for
You to hear me?
Should I turn this up for you?

I sit here locked inside my head
Remembering everything you've said
The silence get's us no where
Get's us no where way too fast

The silence
Is what kills me
I need someone
Here to help me
But you don't know
How to listen
And let me make
My decisions

I sit here locked inside my head
Remembering everything you've said
The silence get's us no where
Get's us no where way too fast

All your insults
And your curses
Make me feel like I'm not a person
And I feel like
I am nothing
But you make me
So do something

Cause I'm fucked up
Because you are
Need attention
Attention you couldn't give

I sit here locked inside my head
Remembering everything you've said
The silence get's us no where
Get's us no where way too fast

I sit here locked inside my head
Remembering everything you've said
The silence get's us no where
Get's us no where way too fast

    I can feel the real meaning to this song. Pain and anger swelling up and finally the sons and daughters can snap.

    It seems 80% of mine, that's for sure.

    ALL YOUR INSULTTS
    AND YOUR CURSES
    MAKE ME FEEL LIKE I'M NOT A PERSON
    AND I FEEL LIKE
    I AM NOTHING

    this song can mean alot of things
    but to me
    what i got out of it is that the kids
    or children of the abusive parents are rising up against their parents and telling them how they feel
