The Lost Boy

I'm known as the boy
that is my name 
my life is now about
playing mothers horrid "games"

My name is lost 
somewhere in the air
what it is
mother doesn't care

I wash the dishes
as mother drinks her booze
me now with the chemicals 
mothers taking her snooze

How did it get to this?
We were the perfect family
I'm not sure why 
but mother dreadfully hates me

She says she'd kill me
and she doesn't even care
she just drinks her booze 
while I'm standing right there

"You've been a bad boy"
mother would say
so this results in 
more games for me to play

Why does she hat me?
Will I ever really know?
All I wanted was
mothers love from long ago

My name is lost 
somewhere in the air
this doesn't seem right
it doesn't seem fair
