By
Most of my life
I wasted as a kid
I have regrets
For many things I did

I don't like
Who I have become
All this shall be changed
By you, my son

You will bring honor
To the family name
It is now your duty
To erase my shame

Son, you're going to be a god
Daddy, please no!
I said you're going to be a god
But Daddy, I can't!

Listen tome
You son of a bitch
Something you wouldn't be
If family were something you could switch

I am sorry
I have remorse
Now I'm ordering you
To carry out your chores

Why won't you listen to me?
It's because of me that you're here
I am your father
So lend me a near

You can do what you want to
You'll be the right in my voice
You can do what you want to
And you have no choice

Son, you're going to be a god
Daddy, please no!
I said you're going to be a god
But Daddy, I can't!

I don't think you understand
What's there to comprehend?
You will bring me forward
Once my life comes to an end

The world is full of problems
My father said the blame was mine
Now you have the cure
Just be divine

Don't disobey me
You have no right
I'm allowing you to do everything
Stop putting up a fight

Ultimately, you can choose
Anyone's destiny
But at the end of the day
Everything you do must get past me

Son, you're going to be a god
Daddy, please no!
I said you're going to be a god
But Daddy, I can't!

I cannot tolerate
All of your insolence
My father never encouraged me
I've wanted to reverse it ever since

Now I'm offering you
Worlds of opportunity
Follow my orders
I demand that you honor me

Son, you're going to be a god
Daddy, please no!
I said you're going to be a god
But Daddy, I can't!
