You're a carrion crow picking on the bones
Of all you suckered into loving and taking care of you
You don't want to be another lost cause of theirs, do you?
Do you want them to be right?

I, I raised you up
I, I gave you all I could
You'll never know love
You'll never know trust
I should have known you were a snake
When I picked you up

You're the weight around our necks that keeps us tied and immobile
You're the chain around our legs that keeps us from moving free
You don't want to drag us all down with you, do you?
Do you want to be an anchor or be a ball and chain

I, I raised you up
I, I gave you all I could
You'll never know love
You'll never know trust
I should have known you were a snake
When I picked you, when I picked you up

I gave up my life when your mother died
We had it coming for a long time
For you to chose that fate is as much as I can take
Pull another stunt like that and never show your face here again

I raised you up
I gave you all I could
But my mistakes were not enough
You, you had to show me up

I can't watch you throw your life away
When a heart that's that big breaks
It leaves you thinking it's way
I had it coming for a long time
If this is the life you chose
Without me you've got nothing to lose
Go ahead but I won't be there

I, I raised you up
I, I gave you all I could
But my mistakes were not enough
You, you had to show me up

I can't watch you throw your life away
No, I won't let you throw your life away
