who can make a man's head hang so low and disgrace the place he stands as he walks a lonely road? it's bitter at the bottom of the barrel dont you know but redemption lies ahead, feed the fire, burn the coal rope it, pull it in, and maintain control cuz the role your playing now builds character and soul if you can shake it, better take it, it's as valuable as gold who'da known it was my father that made me feel alone man over board, a family's been shipwrecked 13 years old, it's like i couldn't even swim yet left to toss and turn in the tears that i cried drownin out emotions cuz the heart can tell a lie box me in with bricks and mortar protectin my investments when you try to cross the border it's a shame, but you're to blame (you're to blame) at this point i'm ashamed that i carry your last name you won't understand, Daddy I Hate You I thought you were a man - Daddy I Hate You a simply sorry won't cut it, and forget a shake of hands cuz Daddy I Hate You, Daddy I Hate You. slap me around, man, i know you want to then you wonder how i got this anger from you pull me back and snap me like a rubberband fling me into trouble as much as trouble can sex, lies and videotape were my escape roll away emotions down the block on my skates grind away the pain, try to fly past the issue dab my eyes with tissues, disguise that i missed you it's too complex and you're too selfish to figure out my head, so i stay celled in locked and cocked, and the safety's off tickin down the clock hands as the ball drops let it fall, forget it all, like this is just a dream a surreal life, is it really what it seems? what could it have been? (what could it have been?) daddy, let me ask, did you really love your kids? almost a decade later and the tables have turned treading dirty water cuz the bridges have burned but it filters through my fingers, and sifts out the treasure with every step forward it takes away the pressure on the road less traveled the mystery unravels love awaits, close the case and crack the gavel make a folder for the future, shred the memories the way we were before is the way we'll never be patchwork quilted, double-stitched and reinforced can't rip apart the seams with any human force light it with a torch and let the whole world see it's my father i look up to and he's standing next to me we dropped everything we had, our pride and all to prove unto others how we're answering the call Christ braids the strands and we stand in awe that we even walk together after learning how to crawl now i hope you understand - Daddy I Love You I can see a new man - Daddy I Love You so i'm huggin this man, forget a shake of hands cuz Daddy I Love You, Daddy I Love You (2x)
