This song is inspired by the murder of Dystiny Myers. More about the case here:

Is a baby born in sin?
Or do we all start out innocent?
When she dyed her hair dark from blonde
Was that a sign she gave up right for wrong
It’s a mystery called Dystiny

She went to church at her grandmother’s side
Sang at the funeral when her baby cousin died
Pastor said she had an angel’s voice
And she was planning to make a better choice
It’s a mystery called Dystiny

See that little girl’s face
Before her fall from grace
Into the world of methamphetamines
Where a life ends at fifteen

Who were these people she called friends?
Who led her to her tragic end
Who tied her up and beat her
Who would burn her and leave her
In a bag in a shallow grave

See that little girl’s face
Before her fall from grace
Into the world of methamphetamines
Where a life ends at fifteen

Oh Mother, was your baby cursed
When addiction took you first?
Oh Father, you’re nowhere to be found
When your rose was trampled in the ground
It’s a mystery called Dystiny
It’s a mystery called Dystiny
