"Problem Child" as written by and Rick/andreone Neigher....
Why won't you pay attention
Pray every night I'll make you happy
If I'm real bad will you punish me
The contact hurts but at least you're touching me
Can't you see can't you read please read me please
Hard to believe I'm your flesh and blood
Watch your mistakes swimming down my face
Jump up and down and I'll even fall
To your feet you're stepping on me
You're hurting me you don't notice me you're hurting me
I'm screaming I'm breaking I'm grieving get angry
I'm rebelling I'm trying I'm losing be proud of me
I'm sickening I'm learning please notice me I'm your baby
Am I all you hoped that I would be
Must be no boundaries guess no one cares
What's mine is mine and what's yours is mine to get
I'll make you listen until you're blue
The contact hurts but at least I'm touching you
I'm raping I'm craving I'm begging get angry
I'm weakening I'm regretting I'm sorry be proud of me
I'm invisible I'm multiplying
I'm pleading I'm killing
Am I all you hoped that I would be
La la's
I'm crippling I'm sobbing I'm degrading
I know you want me
I'm deprecating I'm demoralizing
I'm sad humiliating I'm empty
I'm destroying I'm guilty I'm ashamed
I'm wrong I know I'm wrong
Why won't you pay attention
Hung from a rope then you'll know me

    General Commentthis song is so sad but so beautiful...the "yeeeeaaaahhh"s after the "la la"s are so haunting to me.

    It's so harsh, but eye-opening...children go through these thoughts everyday...wow
