Conceived in pleasure, grew up in shame
denied your full measure of love
denied your name
Do you ever have a solitary day
when you do not notice the hole
that he made when he failed to remain

He felt the pleasure, you live the pain
He took the greatest treasure and
threw it away

Two sets of arms to make you; two should remain
One pair held and comforted you
when the hard times came
Two lovers to rip you into life; did two remain?
One chose to sacrifice your world for his own gain

You know you did not choose this life, you feel adrift
you can tell there's something wrong,
but what is it you miss?

sweet Mother covers you well as she can
she tries to explain
The world calls you the Fatherless
but Child i know your name.

He felt the pleasure, you live the pain
He took the greatest treasure and
threw it away

He got the pleasure, you got the name
Child, the things he took from you
no one can regain
and Marked in your heart forever a Child
gone without Father's embrace
though years have replaced the wound with a scar,
the deed cannot be erased
don't let him deceive you with words of love
where was love when you cried all those years?
A Traitor is as a Traitor does,
and who gave you the gift of those tears?
