I came into in to the world and I knew who you were

But I didn’t know you

I slipped out of the womb battered and bruised and the only reason I lived was because of you

And yet I’m ungrateful

Running around hiding

But what do I need to escape for

Lying between my teeth

Slow as I fall asleep

How could I ever know the truth?

My mind is muddle and so confused

And I’d stay that way if it weren’t for you

So how can I sit here and be so ungrateful

Refusing to do just what you made me for

Befuddled and overused

I shut my eyes from the truth

Running away from what I was made for

How could I be so Ungrateful
