DREAM THEATER

DREAM THEATER - Honor Thy Father

rate me

We're taught unconditional love

That blood is thicker than water

That a parent's world would revolve

Always around their son or their daughter

You pretend I was your own

And even believed that you loved me

But were always threatened by some

Invisible blood line that only you could see

You took advantage of an outreached hand

And twisted it to meet your every need

''Gimme time to re-charge my batteries,

I'll see her when she's older and I'll bounce her on my knee''

Well listen to me you ungrateful fool

Her comes a dose of reality

You'll go to your grave a sad and lonely man

The door is now closed on your pathetic little plan

On and on and on and on it goes

It's so easy to run away with nothing in tow

How can you ever sleep a wink at night

Pretending that everything is alright

And have the nerve to blame this mess on me

Never in my life have I seen someone

So ignorant to the damage he has done

You're the rotted root in the family tree

I tried your 4 bill therapy

I tried to make amends

But nothing could lure you out of your selfish shell again

Expecting everyone to bow and kiss your feet

Don't you see respect is not a one way street

Blaming everyone for all that you've done wrong

I'll get my peace of mind when you hear this song

On and on and on and on it goes

And with every passing day true colors show

How can you ever sleep a wink at night

Pretending that everything is alright

And have the balls to blame this mess on me

Never in my life have I seen someone

Oblivious to the damage he has done

You're the rotted root in the family tree

Watch where you walk

Don't you dare cross the crooked step

Watch the way you talk

Don't cross the crooked step

<there is an entire speech part here that is missing!>

On and on and on and on it goes

Chauvinistic, heartless, selfish, cold

How can you ever sleep a wink at night

Pretending that everything is alright

And have the balls to blame this shit on me

Never in my life have I seen someone

So fucking blind to the damage he has done

You're the rotted root in the family tree
