F Dm

F
Unwanted, but breathing.
In the next room, sleeping.
D
My mother, sheís crying and my fatherís been drinking.
       F                                           F
In our run down apartment, where the roof is still leaking.
Dm
Heís cursing and cussing, itís just the whiskey talking.

A#                                 F
Iíve got lots of memories like this one.
A#                                  F
Of empty days and nights spent tired and lonesome.
A#                                   A#
When I think back to all of it, itís all too much, itís all too much when youíre 
just a little kid.

F Dm F Dm

F                                   F
My little brother, just a newborn baby.
Dm                                             Dm
In the image of my mother, she says heís a blessing.
F                                     F
But not to my father, oh how he hates him.
Dm                                        Dm
ďAn undeserving mistake.Ē He calls him a burden.

A#                             F
Iíve got lots of memories like this one.
A#                             F
Of picking sides and picking fights between them.
Dm7                                   Dm7
When I think back to all of it, itís all too much when youíre just a little kid.
A#
When I wake up in the morning it all feels like a bad dream,
A#
one that follows you and haunts you endlessly.
F
Ooh

(only drums and vocals until the Dm)
Broken and beaten from the abuse and the cheating,
Dm
the addiction, and the lying, and the promise of leaving.
F
While my old man was a bastard, I admired and loved him.
    Dm
And Us two kids were born in to a family, not a fortune.
