Defeater - Bastards

[Verse 1]
I hope this finds you well
A father lost and mother dear
The family that's kept me here
Hard lesson learned, and I've learned it well
How to lose everything, how to push you away
How to lie when I say
"I never raised a hand to the ones I love"
Now look at how
You beg and pray
For your god and his grace to keep you safe
To save you from me

[Chorus]
My broken spirit and back
My calloused, shaking hands
The ache I carry in me
My grief and skeletons
The weight you carried inside
A weight that ain't my bloodline
Black out the sunlight
I count these burdens as mine
And still all you see is that bastard in me
And still all you see is that bastard in me

[Verse 2]
Been living in hell
A father lost and mother dear
The family that I squandered here
I've lived and learned, and I forgot it all
How to lose everything
How to push you away
How to lie when I say
"I never raised a hand to the ones I love"
But I remember how
You begged and prayed
For your god and his grace
To keep you safe
To save you from me
[Chorus]
My broken spirit and back
My calloused, shaking hands
The ache I carry in me
My grief and skeletons
The weight you carried inside
A weight that held my bloodline
Black out the sunlight
I count these burdens as mine
And still all I see is that bastard in me
