Dad, you were right

     Should I lie and say you were wrong?

I'll tell the truth and that is you

                             Told the truth all along

I tried to prove you otherwise

                       I believed my own lies

You said I couldn't, but I didn't listen

               I just reached for the skies

Even graduated early, determination was strong

    That was just a moment, now I know

                           I was wrong all along

And Dad, you were right

                 Down here is where I belong

Ignoramus, little idiot is all that resides

   With circuits fried, inside a shell of nothing

              Where my stupidity hides

The world would be brighter

                           If I just up and died

Then, Dad, would you be happy

                  Would I finally get it right?

Would you be proud of your daughter

                     Forever out of your sight

Now you can gloat, can sit around and look smug

   Dad, you'll be glad to know

                          All along I was wrong
