As Cities Burn – Daughter lyrics

It's a shame what I thought of her
When I saw her that way
It didn't change what you thought of her
She's been your daughter since she was made

Since I was made I've been leaving
I'd say I'd change but I wouldn't believe it
It's 'cause my legs, they don't forget
When they find a way out they'll always take it

Ooh we don't, ooh we don't
We don't know how we got here, the way is overgrown
Ooh we don't, ooh we don't
We don't know how we became this

She has a name but I don't have to know
'Cause all I'm after is all she has to show
We cannot save, we can't even slow
Our loss of innocence, every little child has to grow

Ooh we don't, ooh we don't
We don't know how we got here, the way is overgrown
Ooh we don't, ooh we don't
We don't know how we became this

    I believe it means, he's met a girl that hes going to have s** with and that's all he plans, no relationship. They are not married, but he states that the father of the girl will still love her, because she is his daughter and nothing will change that. He then goes on to say, even if he wanted to love her and stay with her, he's so used to using and leaving girls, that he will leave her. He then states in the chorus that the whole world is engulfed and taken over by meaningless s**, when it used to mean something. Lust only matters to people, not love. He then goes on to say he doesn't have to know her, because he will only be having s** with her. The world will not change only continue to be consumed by non-loving relationships and corrupt innocent children, and maybe he's hinting on lots of children being born by single mothers because of all the meaningless, one night stand s**. In the end the chorus just restates how corrupt the world has become and how it's all so loveless and will continue to be this way even teach new generations to be worse than we are now.
