Who’ll Come for me (Kumanka)

It never happened in my youth
I dug my own holes
And crawled out
Of the misery of a kid unloved

I searched forever for a mother
I adored an absent father
And just kept wondering
Who’ll come for me

I was bashed by the bigger boys
I had no brothers at my side
And sisters could do nil
Wards of state are kids forgotten

The years were slow painfully real
A forgotten child
With large brick walls to fend

But you wonder forever
In a place like that

Who’ll come for me
