\'Rather Rein In Hell Then Serve In Prison\' - the Devil


-Dad I was five when you weren't their, all those nights crying, explain hows that fair
-You never said goodbye, never left a clue, just left me alone at home, searching for you
-You've had always said you would fill this hole, never leave my side, always play the father role
-No longer did I have my everlasting friend, dad why did you leave me, is it going to be like this till the end
-Other kids talk about their dads, I'm in detention, screaming mad
-No longer did you cheer for me at my little league game, swing, miss, walk back, head heavy with shame
-Mom keeps bringing guys over to meet me, trying to be my friend and take your place, and for that i made sure they leave without a trace
-But as one left, another came, and by this point I new life would never be the same
-Dad, I'm now seventeen and your not here, all those nights crying, explain hows that's fair, don't find me dad, don't our dare
