Child Of Shame

    Purchasable with gift card



where we are born is just by chance
which land, which family we get
I know one she is illegitimate
she grew up as a foster child

they go: she's not wanted, she is strange
the whole village looks at her
her existence was just a mistake
people say: a child of shame

child of shame
it was not your fault
just dry your tears, child of shame
hear me, child of shame
don't look back in pain
god has called you by your name

she's got a husband and two kids
but she can't live a normal life
her history won't let her go
depressions speak to her at night

they go: you're not wanted, you are strange
the whole city looks at you
your existence was a bad mistake
you'll always be a child of shame

go away you creatures of sadness, go away
I won't let you into my life, just go away
