From Karhlton 

 Like a blot of ink on paper
Who says you can judge me?
And tell me who to be and become
Who gave you the right

Who gave you the right to mark me down with your pens of injustice
And swindle me with your lying lips
Who authorized you to

Who authorized you to walk over me 
Like a busy street
To use me like paper crumbled up
Who told you you could

Who told you you could stare me down with your eyes
And take the innocence from my soul
Why did you make that fatal incision
Who made you do it 
Am sure I never asked for any favor
Am sure this was not my idea 
Tell me who made you some strikingly evil
