Eyes of the future will realize,
to their surprise, my demise
Predetermined cause of death,
lack of breath, failing test
Cares are spent on rotting ears,
this you gave the hospital years
My blood on your giving hands,
this life I took gave no demands

See me in agony,
Give me uncertainty,
Take what you want from me
I'm alive

Embryonic testaments
clues to repentance
Fresh meat stay away
broken toys for me to play
Forming arms, eyes and legs, this is choice,
The cry of a newborn is nothing but a painful noise

    General CommentLiterally, it's about a defective baby left to die. But I think the true point of it is the contradiction between the will to live (the defiant 1st part of the chorus) vs. how cheap life is if you look at it from a certain angle (the 1st verse + the end of the chorus).
