“Unforgiven”, Metallica

“New blood joins this earth, and quickly he’s subdued 

Through constant pain disgrace, the young boy learns their rules 

With time the child draws in, this whipping boy done wrong 

Deprived of all his thoughts, the young man struggles on and on he’s known 

A vow unto his own, that never from this day, his will they’ll take away

They dedicate their lives, to running all of his 

He tries to please them all, this bitter man he is 

Throughout his life the same, he’s battled constantly 

This fight he cannot win, a tired man they see no longer cares 

The old man then prepares, to die regretfully, “that old man here is me.”
