You've convicted me for what you've done
For all that you've taught me to be
I hold the truth, you spiel the lies
For what you want them to believe
Knocked down - and left to bleed
Back to my cage - then let me back on to the streets
Raised by the system, by the ruthless
It's they who have created me

Kill
Raised to - kill
Bred to - kill
Raised to kill back on the streets

Cursed by my sadness and lack of self worth
I wanted to die since my first day of birth
Loathed and rejected, disrespected
Now scared for the rest of my life i resent it
Knocked down - and left to bleed
Back to my cage - then let me back onto the streets
Raised by the system, by the ruthless
It's they who have created me

Darkness has raised me and bathed me in sin
Your system is darkness and my next of kin

The sunlight pours through my window
The grim breath of existence wakes me from my dream
One foot on the floor to start the day
Every other step is misery
The tears are gone, but the emptiness lie follow
