Momma Raised

Momma made a monster…
Momma made a monster…
Momma made a monster…
Momma made a monster…
Momma made a monster.
Momma birthed a terror,
and then raised that horror into me…

There was darkness on the edge of town the day that I was born
like a fire wrecking everything but nothing getting warm.
They say the city never knew what hit it on that night.
Best believe I wouldn’t get through that first day without a fight.
I tell you
Momma made a monster…
Momma made a monster…
Momma made a monster…
Momma made a monster…
Momma made a monster.
Momma birthed a terror
and then raised that horror into me…

Everybody understood to give this boy wide berth
cuz nothing could withstand my gaze that crawls upon the earth
though some fools sometimes bothered me with tears upon my wrists
when they found they’d gotten too much of their blood upon my fists.
You get it?
Momma made a monster…
Momma made a monster…
Momma made a monster…
Momma made a monster…
Momma made a monster.
Momma birthed a terror
and then raised that little horror into me…

Age o’ five, were three alive that thought of me a threat:
The Pope, the President and Prince arranged a coup d’etet.
The President since left his post, the Pope is gone, now, too.
Just ask me what I did to Prince, I’ll do it next to you.
Because, see,
Momma made a monster…
Momma made a monster…
Momma made a monster…
Momma made a monster…
Momma made a monster.
Momma birthed a terror
and then built that Frankenstein right into me…

(bridge)
Momma tried to raise me right there for a couple three o’ weeks.
Kept on making those corrections on the wrong ways that I’d speaks
and I tried to just respect her and all the rules she told
but I couldn’t help the way she made me: strong and bad and bold…

It’s been that way for all those years; I’ve grown up big and mean.
I’m not to blame; I’m drawn this way. I’m made from evil genes.
It’s much too late to change my ways. On this I’ve staked my lot unless
you smile at me again. Then I’ll give being good a shot
even though
Momma made a monster…
Momma built a monster…
Momma trained a monster…
Momma carved a monster…
Momma hatched a monster.
Momma birthed a terror
and then moulded that horror into me…
