The Lyrics

I wrote this in the same mood that Jonathan Swift's proposal that rich Englishmen should eat Irish babies, so please don't hurt me! *ducks out of the line of fire of his fellow Autistic activists*
Trying to live with these children
Why can't you see that it's hell
Why in God's name should we help them
When they've contributed nothing
Into this wide world, you know that
They are worth nothing, just empty shells
I gave birth to a sweet child
He had a face so cute
And then at eighteen months old
His doc I wished to shoot
A routine vaccination
Switched Jake's brain right off
Trying to live with these children
Why can't you see that it's hell
Why in God's name should we help them
When they've contributed nothing
Into this wide world, you know that
They are worth nothing, just empty shells
My son went for assessment
His wails high pitched and loud
The doc said, "He's Autistic"
And sent my world crashing down
I tried to cure my poor boy
But he just lived right on
Trying to live with these children
Why can't you see that it's hell
Why in God's name should we help them
When they've contributed nothing
Into this wide world, you know that
They are worth nothing, just empty shells
People tell my son off
During all his meltdowns
They tell me I should scold Jake
Their faces full of frowns
Forget online resources
I can't afford their help
Trying to live with these children
Why can't you see that it's hell
Why in God's name should we help them
When they've contributed nothing
Into this wide world, you know that
They are worth nothing, just empty shells
Ohhhhhhhhhhh
Oohhhhhhh... lalalal... ohhhh lalaaaaaaa
Trying to live with these children
Why can't you see that it's hell
Why in God's name should we help them
When they've contributed (nothing)
I hate trying to live
Yeah, why can't you see that
Why in God's name should we help them
When they've contributed nothing
Into this wide world, you know that
They are worth nothing, just empty shells
