Drunk in a stupor all alone
Drank too much and I just can't go home
I'm not ready, I'm lost in faith
Can you wake me now?
And I look back and ask God how?

I get my answer drink up my son
I gave you everything so you'd think you'd won
I thought you'd be so content
But with every drink you repent
Oh with every drink you repent

So drink up drink up and you give up today
But I hope that you find some other way
So proud was I to create you
Yet as you grow older pain does ensue
As you grow older pain does ensue

Promise me child promise me tonight
That I am God and I am right
The mind that I gave you is something great, my child
I didn't want you to be second rate
I never wanted you to be second rate

Shine on shine on shine on for me
Shine on shine on for all that you see
As you grow older great things will arise
And you'll finally see why you're my blessed prize
You'll finally see why you're my blessed prize

Your eyes may not see it they don't see it today
Don't see it today
But it takes time to find your way
Find your way
When you find it you'll suddenly see
Suddenly see
The way that I made you is the way you should be
The way that I made you is the way you should be
Suddenly see
The way you should be
