I am wrathchild
I’m what you made me
Angry and wild.

You kill the water you burn the air
You spread your poison everywhere

And by your actions you give birth to me,

When the last tree is gone
When the last deer is gone
When the land lies dead and dry

I’ll come into my kingdom
And you will have reason to fear me
For I will never forgive –

No, I won’t forgive you for giving me birth
