lyrics

Dear son, it's your old man
And I suppose you're still pretty mad
But can't you just forget and forgive?
Forget all the years that I was smoking drugs
When I stole every bit of your stuff
You weren't even thirteen, how long can you possibly hold a grudge?

I hope your mother's doing fine
I'd like to talk to her some time
You said that I beat her but you just can't trust the memory of a kid
Remember when you were about nine?
And I was posing as a girl online?
When I told you if you grew up gay, I'd disown you?

How can you stay so mad at your loving, dear old dad?
Can't a man start over without having to apologize?
I got over it, now it's your turn

I spent a lot of your life in jail
The rape charges raised up my bail
But she was asking for it and I know because I paid her in full
You and your mother did me wrong
When you moved out and you took the dogs
I can deal with you leaving but it's so fucked up that you took my pit bull

How can you stay so mad at your loving, dear old dad?
Can't a man start over without having to apologize?
I got over it, now it's your turn

Certain people want me dead
And son, I hear you're one of them
If it's true I'm gonna get all my biker friends together to kick your ass
They'll understand when I call them up
And say "We've gotta beat up my son
He's mad that I ruined the entire first half of his life"

Y'know what?
I'm gonna start a website where I'm gonna say you died
To get sympathy from teenage girls who meet offline
I can pretend I'm 35 and that I play guitar alright
Then I'll put up demos by the guy from Staind and say that they are mine

How can you stay so mad at your loving, dear old dad?
Can't a man start over without having to apologize?
I got over it, now it's your turn
How can you and your mom say that I did you so wrong?
Can't a man start over without having to apologize?
I got over it, now it's your turn.
