I went to FORSAKEN LANfest, Mom, I remembered what you said.
You told me not to lag, Mom, so I bought a 100bt card instead.
I really felt proud inside, Mom, the way you said I would.
I didn't lag and fly, Mom, even though the others said I did.

I know I did the right thing, Mom, I know you're always right.
Now DFest is finally ending, Mom, as bikers leave.
As I got into my bike, Mom, I knew I'd had a successful flight.
Because of the way you raised me, so responsible and polite.

I started to fly away, Mom, but as I pulled out into the levels,
the other bike lag busted at me, Mom, and hit me like a load.
As I lay there on the pavement, Mom, I hear the ForsakenFesters say,
It was the other Biker lagging, Mom, and now I'm the one who will pay.

I'm lying here dying, Mom. I wish you'd get here soon..
How could this happen to me, Mom? My bike just burst like a balloon.
There is blood all around me, Mom, and most of it is mine.
I hear my teammate say, Mom, "You'll die in a short while."

I just wanted to tell you, Mom, I swear I didn't lag.
It was the other bikers, Mom. The other connection was bad.
He is on the same level as I, Mom, watching as he flies.
The only difference is, Mom, his lag, it wasn't really mine.

Why do people lag, Mom? It can ruin your whole life.
I'm feeling sharp pains now. Pains just like a knife.
The guy who hit me is still flying, Mom, and I don't think it's fair.
I'm lying here dying and all he can do is stare.

Tell my teammate not to cry, Mom. Tell Daddy to be brave.
And when I go to heaven, Mom, put "Mama's boy" on my grave.
Someone should have told him, Mom, not to lag and fly.
If only they had told him, Mom, I would still be alive.

My breath is getting shorter, Mom. I'm becoming very scared.
Please don't cry for me, Mom. When I needed you, you were always there.
I have one last question, Mom, before I say good-bye.
I didn't lag and fly, Mom, so why am I the only one to die?
