Tell me, Father, for I must know,
Is there a fire down below?
Is there a flame in which to burn?
Is there a Hell, for which to yearn?
Is there a reason why we're born
To all this ridicule and scorn?
Is there a meaning for all this pain?
- Do you remember Kurt Cobain?
Is there a reason to go on?
Tell me true, for I'm your son.
What is the point of being right,
When the world is always wrong?
What's the point of singing...
When you've forgotten the song?
In my mind, a gentle weeping:
The one I gave my soul for keeping.
The future is faded graffiti scrawled
In some old, forgotten rune:
What's the point of whistling
When they keep changing the tune?
How long must I twist and squirm
And scream my rage at you?
Trapped in your rhetoric,
Impaled on your point of view?
There are no more answers to find,
There is only blinding pain:
For someone stole my memories
- And I can never find them again!
No Dragons to slay, no Maids to tame
Oh, I'm tired of this silly game!
They say youth is the eternal now -
But tell me Father, tell me how...
How can I ever compromise
Drowning in your tired lies?
Your memory's forgiven,
Your mouth is out of synch...
Your demise is a given...
- But not the way you'd think!
They say I'm too young to drink or vote
But I think I'll have another sip:
Locked inside my frozen brain
I oil the gun and load the clip.
Thank you for the kind words, Father,
Thank you for the pain,
Guess I'll visit my favourite school
- And never bother you again!
For what is Time, and what is Space
When there's a pimple on my face?
