I address this letter to my dear father
The complete unknown
I guess it's better that you just don't bother
All your truths will be left alone

I'm the daughter you can't hide
Pray for your life before you pray for mine
I'm just the forgotten child
The one you left behind

So many years have been ignored
You've been gone without a trace
I'm getting to knowing that
You're just a name without a face

A father without a son
Is like a bullet without a gun
But what about a father without his daughter?
I guess you can't spell manslaughter without laughter

You were mean to make it hurt
Make it all disappear into the dirt
All the things I had to go through
And it's all because of you

Do you feel any shame?
Because I feel a lot of pain
Take the time to take my breath
I will end where I began

If you're out there somewhere
I don't know if you care
It seems like you don't
So you remain the complete unknown

All we had, gone forever
Things that you said would never be
Living without you don't bother me
Yours truly,
Your daughter
