I didn't die a natural death.
My life was stolen from me, before my first natural breath.
Casualty of circumstance.
Someone make a decision for me.
They never gave me a chance.

Where's that first birthday I hoped for?
The candle I'd blow out.
No one will ever hear me laugh or ever see me smile.
I would've make my parents proud.

They weren't much more than children themselves.
I felt her honest reasons, though she said it would further her health.
I'm on the inside looking out. Please don't just give up, at least give me to someone else.


Adoption, abortion, am I responsible for your action?
Life versus death, they make the choice, they let me go.
Disregard human value. What if your parents did this to you?
Victim of circumstance, this is our last dance.

Eleven weeks old today.
My mother made a pro-choice, a purchase I would have to pay.
They found a price on my life.
Consider this my farewell. My good bye.

    General Commentbrain.damage, (nailed the name there) you can't even bring up incest or rape or health issues. only 7% of abortions are because of those reasons. 6% because of health issues, and 1% - ONE FUCKING PERCENT - because of rape AND incest. out of the 47 million abortions a year, only SEVEN PERCENT are because of those. the other 93%? because the children are some kind of inconvenience.

    if you don't believe me, i don't give a shit. i'm just putting these facts out there before some other ignorant person uses it as an argument.

    General Commentoh and also is this a dogwood song or a dashboard song cuz its under both names, but to make it clear this song is conservative bullshit and I dont see why a christian band would be conservative when coservatives: do not help poor out at all, lower taxes which help upper class, and want to eliminate gun control. If you guys are a christian band maybe you should look at these issues then decided which side you'll be on. The way a true christian should believe is certainly more liberal than concervative and this song is compete bs propaganda.
