Lyrics:
I was born into a scene
of angriness and greed
of dominance and persecution
My mother was a queen
my dad I've never seen
I was never meant to be
Now I spend my time
looking all around
For a man that's nowhere
to be found
until I find him
I'm never gonna stop searching
I'm gonna find my man
gonna travel around
CHORUS
Cos I'm a wrathchild
Well I'm a wrathchild
Yeh I'm a wrathchild
Oh I'm coming to get ya
Oh yeah-eh-yeah
Some say it shouldn't matter
ain't nothing gonna alter
the course of my destination
But I know I've gotta find
some serious peace of mind
or I know I'll just go crazy
CHORUS
