"My Child" as written by and David/donegan Draiman....
Tore it up again, I couldn't stop again
Letting go till there was nothing in the way
Fuck the feeling then, I cave in again
Sweet surrender to the angel I deny
When you came to life I was terrified
I knew that nothing else would ever feel the same
Doubt came over me, what kind of father would I be?
Another time I could stand up and be a man
To change a face in my life
(To change a face in my life)
Your future and mine
(Your future and mine)
Time to do what is right
(what is right)
A new beginning

The world around me died
When I saw that heartbeat
I knew it wasn't a sin
Can someone tell me why
This has happened to me?
Why was it only in death
Would you redeem my child?

No serenity within agony
Every day brings on
A hundred ways to fight
Constant scrutiny
I can feel you judging me
Resurrecting every demon that's inside
The priest was horrified
You struggled for the life
That one desire was the dream I sought for yours
Creeps cripple me, the reaper kidded me
Left me early for the path I'd come to adore
To change a face in my life
Your future and mine
Time to do what is right
(what is right)
A new beginning

The world around me died
When I saw that heartbeat
I knew it wasn't a sin
Can someone tell me why
This has happened to me?
Why was it only in death
Would you redeem my child?

My child,
The world around me died
When I saw that heartbeat
I knew it wasn't a sin
Can someone tell me why
This has happened to me?
Why was it only in death
Would you redeem my child?

I pray you will redeem my child

    General CommentThis song is about a child who David's previous girlfriend lost in a miscarriage. He impregnated her and when he readied with the thought of having a child, she miscarried...

    Song MeaningI think that the song "Never Again" is explicitly about the Holocaust, as its lyrics include words such as Nazi, Holocaust and Hitler. However, I have to agree that not the entire album has that theme, and this song in particular has nothing to do with it.

    General CommentxiiBrokenTV- what you say about this song makes no sense. the lyrics have nothing to do with the holocaust they dont even sound like theyd have anything to do with it. and another way to die is more like whats going to happen to everyone in the future because of our stupidity and there are ways to stop it but we refuse to listen. listen to the lyrics maybe youll understand a bit better. non of these songs sound like they have anything to do with the holocaust.

    Song Meaningthis post is to all songs in the album Asylum....

    all the lyrics in Asylum, even Draiman said so are metaphors to the holocaust... asylum = ghetto, never again (well duh), another way to die = a metaphor that we kill each other in many ways, the infection = the nazis (the infection must die), warrior = that we are now strong and nothing such as that can happen again to us (the jews), crucified = the scientific torture a nazi (Dr. Mangle) did, my child = it talks about Korczak that attempted to save all the orphan children, innocence = that humanity has left the innocent 'phase', the animal = the anger and pain we still hold onto can unfold itself quickly if you attempt to redo the nazi mistake, serpentine = we (the jews) thought everything was good and then suddenly the holocaust started, sacrifice = showing the other side of our mind thats says that we want a sacrifice from to world to show the sorriness and to promise nothing as such will ever happen...

    yes im a jew that lives in Israel... and that was proof of the metaphors.. its all about never again and about the asylum...
