Born Bad Lyrics - Voltaire

Review The Song (1)



They say the day that I was born
It rained here
Yet it was the best day of your life
And who'd ever dream
A child sweet as I seemed
Would be the source of
So much pain and strife
Ohh..

Ever time I tried to take the high road
Something deep inside me dragged me down
Wherever I appeared
Came hate, despair and fear
Seemed trouble always followed me around

Say it's not too late for you to hold me
You were always there
When times were bad
sponsored links
And they're so bad
The love you gave to me
So unconditionally
So sad
So sad
Born bad

Nary have I written you a letter
Hardly have I called as things were bad
And all those I called friends
Are all gone in the end
In truth you were the best I ever had
Mom, is it too late for you to hold me
You were always there
When times were bad
And they're so bad
The love you gave to me
So unconditionally
So sad
So sad
Born bad

I don't wanna go
I don't wanna go
I'm not ready yet..
No.. no..

To me, this song captures a truely human moment that everyone will experience at least once in their lifetime. Although sung by a male, it is repairable to both genders for everyone experiences a somepoint a time where they have messed up so badly that they have lost everything. It is at those moments that the importance of family are stressed. The last few lines of "I don't wanna go...I'm not ready yet" clearly indicte a premature death, bit we can only assume that, in context with the song, his mother is dead and that would be the only way for the narrator to be held.
Overall, bravo Voltaire for writing a song so humanly significant.
