about

this song is dedicated to anyone who has ever felt unwanted, unloved or unimportant. whether you've been a victim, villain or both - it's never too late to reclaim the best parts of yourself

lyrics

we are children of fate
tossed to the dogs
abandoned strays
our tears fall no more
we've learned to seek solace in the roughest of storms

though we don't weep, our wounds still bleed
children of fate, we're the unwanted seeds

I've been burnt at the stake, I've been walked down the plank
and I've been the victim who's stoned while crying on the floor
I'm biding my time, they say I'm speaking in tongues
but I am nothing without all of these memories

we are unwanted seeds
underdogs growing our roots into trees
they say we're wasting our time
but we disagree and we're doing just fine

though we don't weep, our wounds still bleed
children of fate, we're the unwanted seeds

I've been burnt at the stake, I've been walked down the plank
and I've been the victim who's stoned while crying on the floor
I'm biding my time, they say I'm speaking in tongues
but I am nothing without all of these memories

I ask, where were you then? when we were just children?
I can't even imagine the logic behind your self serving deeds
now we're unwanted seeds -
but our roots will grow into trees with new memories...
