"The One That You Hated" as written by and Arthur Carl Enders William J Lugg....
Is it my fault if it was planned? And yes, it was.
Well then because of me your selfishness ruins everything.

Well if every moment always counts for something, then we lost this running around.

All these settings never change for better; I sent you a place and time.
I thought you could use it to learn how to love your worst despite.
I sent you down with that kid.
The one that you hated, I thought you could raise him just like you.

I can change this I swear, now that's just the voice of all your fear.
No that's not quite it. I promise ill fill his tights the best.
Well if all your mind power gives solutions like this.

And all these settings never change for better; I sent you a place and time.
I thought you could use it to learn how to love your worst despite.
I sent you down with that kid.
The one that you hated, I thought you could raise him just like you.

Then bring him back to me exactly how you wanted him to be.

All these settings never made it better; I sent you a place and time.
I thought you could use it to learn how to love your worst despite.
I sent you down with that kid.
The one that you hated, I thought you could raise him just like you.

    General Commentwoohooo!

    awesome song first off. This song is quite confusing to figure out. But sounds like A broken family with problems of taking care of a kid they had when they were together. And one of the parents is having trouble accepting the kid as his or her own..

    I dunno but great song, quite catchy.

    cant wait for the new CD!

    General CommentYeah, if you listened to the rest of the album this song connects well. The kid feels that the parents have abandoned him. He wants to know how he has to be to be good enough for him, like it's built into his parents mind that they're so much better than him when they're not.

    General Commentit sounds like the mother and father are having a argument. when he lowers his voice its the father's and when he sings its the mothers.

    General Commenti think its "to learn how to love your worst disguise"

    first verse is an argument, all the lows are the father and singing is the mother. second verse is discussion between the father and his father about what to do with the boy. the key line in this whole song is "all these settings never made it better" its used to justify everyones position and point of view about what to do with the kid. the mother and father just want to run, the grandfather thinks he'll be better off since he has money but the father doesn't agree since he doesnt like the way he was raised, then the last verse is saying if the kid's grandparents took the kid to raise him and then gave back to the real parents when he was a certain age (which is what happens in the path); it will still be a bad solution for the kid. All three cd's are about how you deal with your mistakes and how people can be hipocrits until they actually go through the situation in which they are criticizing so much
