They were so ecstatic when the letter arrived
They planned his future so carefully
He was a model child, a devoted son
He played out every role, a "T.V. hero"

They gave him hopes and dreams, and taught him not to hate
Now he's hidin', 'cause his fingerprints on the gun
Why'd ya' have to do it Evil Genius?
Why'd ya' put us through it Evil Genius?

Your best interests were in our minds
No one ever expected anything like this from you
Why'd ya' have to do it Evil Genius?
Why'd ya' put us through it Evil Genius?

Was it justified in your mind?
Was it justified in your mind anytime you held a grudge?
