The American Dad
Taken for granted
A comic book hero
An astronaut landed
But in the eyes of the beholder
A man helped conceive
With a woman never loved
A child he'll now leave
The only moments spent
With the father and his child
Is a picture in a frame
While he wishes to meet the smile

Dad always calls
But he never hears the tone
"You're full of broken promises"
Mom whispers on the phone
Then he wakes up
From noises in the night
Gets up out of bed
Turns on all the lights
To see his mom sitting there
Crying in the dark

Naturally as a child
Your place is in her arms
But since she was never shown love
She couldn't give a darn
So seh pushed him away
But she meant him no harm
And the very next day, the lies drove her mad
She was full of broken promises
And she was just like dad
