"A Child Called "It"" as written by and Joshua/nelson Todd....
Mother I really hate the way your treat me like no other
And I refuse to be your victim!

I count the days and nights they are all numbered
She takes her time and hurts me like no other
Keep it all inside, never see me cry
Hoping I find a way out from "The Mother"
Please god don't let her destroy my life

Mother I really hate the way your treat me like no other
And I refuse to be your victim you won't see me cry 'cause
I left behind a child called it

She makes me stay inside under her cover
Takes out her pain on me and not my brothers
Keep it all inside never see me cry
Hoping I find a way out from "The Mother"
One step close and the world is mine

Mother I really hate the way your treat me like no other
And I refuse to be your victim
Mother what have I done to make you upset I'm in trouble
And I'm too young to know your weakness you're so sick and you'll never miss a child called it

I count my days and nights they are all numbered
She takes her time and hurts me like no other

Tell me why you were so unkind?
You're so sick and you'll never miss a child called it
A child called it!

    General CommentEssentially this song was made for the book called A Child Called It by David Pelzer. Very very powering book. Quite sad. Essentially sums up the story into a song. Except in the actual story, there's more detail than you could imagine this boy going through. True Story.

    General CommentWhat she said.
    A Child Called "It" is the saddest book I've ever read, hands down.
    I thought it was very.. uplifting that Josh did a song about, because it proves that the story has touched alot of people.

    General Commentthis song was released right after I read the book a child called it. It was a VERY sad book,
    there was a few times when I had to stop reading it because it was so upsetting.

    This song is Very good. I love how Buckcherry wrote a song about that book.
