lyrics

Scum of the Earth

Mother and father, oh why should I bother to be good any longer when no one reciprocates? Biting my anger couldn’t taste any stranger. I’m no babe in a manger with this heart filled with hate for every transgression I won’t ever discuss with those whom my love is devoid of all trust, when I’m fairly sure that the scum of the earth wouldn’t do the things that they do. But if I was to call them the scum of the earth I guess that means me too.

Brothers and sisters, just admit our existence are but callousing blisters on the hands of fate. I tried to hide you once I knew we’ve been lied to every time that we tried to not get carried away with the thought there’s some reward for always doing right when all that life asks of us is to survive.

And I’m fairly sure that the scum of the earth wouldn’t do the things I do, but if you were to call me the scum of the earth then I guess that means you too.

And what shames me to the core is that I can do no more than you at your so called ‘worst.'
