ANNIHILATOR lyrics - Bad Child

ANNIHILATOR
"Bad Child"
(Jeff Waters)

My father tried to tell me, son
Just get your feet on the ground
You're in deep way over your head
Just turn your life around
Poor mother, all I gave to her was pain, I didn't realize
The last thing I remember
Was the tears running from her eyes

Something happened along the way (bad child)
Something happened they'd always say (bad child)

Four, three, two, one!

Playing hookey, drinking octane
I didn't care anymore, no
Always running against the grain
I was rotten to the core
I could live forever
Until they threw me out the door
I was a sleeping on the floor
Ooh

Something happened along the way, I was a bad child
Something happened they'd always say, I was a little wild
I was a bad child, yeah

Go!

My father tried to tell me, son
Just get your feet on the ground
You're in deep, way over your head
I've turned my life around
My mother was the best to me, I guess I never realized
The one thing that I'll never forget was the tears running from her eyes

Something happened along the way, I was a bad child (bad child)
Something happened they'd always say, I was a little wild
I was a little wild
Something happened along the way
Now I'm living for a better day
Something happened along the way, I was a bad child
