Simply put: Cory Friedman's life was a living hell.
From "The Burn Journals" (Vintage Books, 2005), by Brent Runyon
One time, when I was little, I was sitting up front in the old Datsun we used to have and Mom went into a store to buy something and left me in the car by myself. I pushed in the cigarette lighter because it looked like something you should push in, and then after a while it popped back out. And I took it out and held it in my hand. The inside was a pretty color of orange and it was shaped in a spiral like my fingerprint, and I wanted to touch my fingerprint to it because they were such a perfect match. And I did. I pushed my thumb right into the orange cigarette lighter and it was either hot or cold, I couldn't tell which at first, and then it was hot, really, really hot, and I screamed and dropped the cigarette lighter and opened the door with my other hand. It was winter and there was a pile of snow right outside the car and I stuck my thumb into the snow. ...
When Mom came back to the car, I didn't want to tell her what I did, so I just sat in the front seat the whole way home, letting the pain build up inside me. I kept my face blank and made it all the way home without her finding out what I did.
Lean on me when you’re not strong,
And I’ll be your friend, I’ll help you carry on
For it won’t be long
Till I’m gonna need somebody to lean on.
