Icon For Hire - Sorry About Your Parents (Icon For Hire)

I’m sorry about your parents, they sound like bad people
Your daddy sounds like a jerk
I guess your mama didn’t know the gift she got when she got you
I’m sorry about your life, you had it pretty rough
Bending over backwards, never good enough
You poor thing, it must suck to be you
And I know it’s not your fault, it never is, is it?

I know what it’s like staying up all night nursing wounds
It takes more than I have, pick fights with the past, I always lose
Oh, don’t you know? That’s no way to live
I know what it’s like staying up all night nursing wounds

I get it, give me a little credit
I remember when I was that pathetic
Wear my scars on my sleeve, for all the world to see
Like look what they did to me quick, lay on the sympathy thick
You probably have the right to feel how you do
You were mistreated and cheated out of the childhood you needed
And now you’ll never succeed if you’re so convinced you’re defeated
If you’re obsessed with your yesterday then you’re destined to repeat it
And I know it’s not your fault, it never is, is it, is it, is it?

Mmm, I get it,
Give me a little credit.
I remember when I was that pathetic.
Wear my scars on my sleeve,
For all the world to see.

Lay on the sympathy quick.

You probably have a right to feel how you do,
You were mistreated and cheated out of the childhood you need.
You’ll never manage to succeed if you’re so convinced you’re defeated.
If you’re obsessed with your yesterday then you’re destined to repeat it.

RE 6627: Icon For Hire’s “Sorry About Your Parents” is about the people who use their “disorders” to get sympathy and like the attention so much they don’t even try to get better. Not kids who are beaten by their parents. Listen to the song.

6627 - Sorry About Your Parents is about people who whine about how bad they have it and end up not being able to move on, just stuck in a rut of self pity. IFH just give them a handy dose of truth.
