* send corrections to the typist
I never knew my mom, once I was born she was dead
He said she was polluted, ignorant, uncivilized
I grew up in a house with more rooms than I could count
My dad hated all our neighbors
'Cause getting his is what he was about
I wish he died instead of mom. Maybe then I'd love family
Each day he'd wear the same three colors, with the same suit
To the thought of her beautiful voice, and the lullabies she'd sing
My whole life, my soul echoed her songs
And intangible experience structures one leviathan
Since when did America fall in between Lebanon and Ireland?
[chorus x 2]
Angel in my father's eyes, only 'cause it helps him rot
Mamma was a lullaby, Daddy was a melting pot
His philosophy was to be up, you gotta push someone down
I found the flaws in his methods from the cause in myself
He taught me how to talk without looking in your eyes
A puddle of the dried tears shade me colorless
Our relationship hovered with strength, even though it's invisible
With the notes she hits I float, defying gravitation

One day daddy's gonna die, choking on the gun he bought
And when that day comes I shall return to my mother
And when the clouds part, I'll tell her that I love her
Unless dad was right, and she really was a monster
Maybe she's so insane, no one cared to help
The volumes of her songs decreased the older that I grew
Now I'm robotically imperialistic, and careless of people
His symbol's the eagle, but his child isn't free
I'm not grown up, the concept of adulthood is dead
I guess the grass is always greener on the other side
From the Koran to leprechauns
