about

A story about abuse and survival.

lyrics

I was born to the sun
I was born to the sands
I was born to the gun
I was down on my hands

I was raised on the dirt
I was cast to the floor
I took all your hurtin’
and I came back for more

I was scarred on the hide
My mottled pelt
My wounded pride
It proves I won

You would shun me
I was raised on this
Your leather belt
You were born to do harm

My teeth, my tusks
I was a husk of a man
You had all the luck
You had all the blood on your hands

At the end of all time
We will start fresh and right
We committed no crimes
We burned so bright

Well we drifted apart
We were born to grieve
The popular version goes:
You didn’t believe

My teeth, my tusks
I was a husk of a man
You had all the luck
You had all the blood on your hands
