lyrics

You weren’t around to see the kind of man I’d grow to be
No you weren’t around to see your son.
I knew I’d scrape my knees along the road you paved for me,
But I never asked to be your son.

I know the game was fixed, and I know the factors in the mix
Yeah I know the game was fixed, but not who won.
I’m sure you did you best with the tools that you possessed
Yeah I’m sure you did you best with your gun.

But now I’ve come to see that in this two-tiered tragedy
We play our parts in blindness ‘till the curtain call’s complete.
And if the tension gets relieved, all the patrons who’ve come to grieve
Will learn the feeling trumps the plot.
