Demo vocal by NyaLi; backing track by Robert Ruby

Sometimes I forget to be grateful
for a kick in the teeth and the back of your hand
Neither food nor love comes by the plateful
and nothing ever works out like you planned

Beatings began before I can remember
but the names you call me I can never forget
Other dads aren't just nice in December
Other moms don't hide bruises and regret

My soul's been crushed
like a grape at some winery
Still I'm living in your riches,
in all your riches and finery

Sharper than the serpent's tooth,
breaking free of you
My little seeming substance
knows what I must do

Sometimes I forget to be grateful
Sometimes I forget to be grateful
Sometimes I forget to be grateful
