Daddy can you hear the devil drawing near
Like a bullet from a gun, run daddy run
All the songs you used to sing to me would rock the birds to sleep
I need you now so please somehow put rockets on your feet
Wow wow wow wow

Daddy can you hear the devil drawing near
Like a bullet from a gun, run daddy run
Saw that dark cloud coming from a million miles away
Oh how I've dreaded this god forsaken place
Wow wow wow wow
Daddy can you hear the devil drawing near

Like a bullet from a gun, run daddy run
Mamas been cryin in the kitchen
Sisters been afraid of the dark
I've been gatherin the pieces of all these shattered hearts
I don't care where you go to
I don't care where you land
Just get out of here daddy as fast as you can

Wow wow wow wow
Daddy can you hear the devil drawing near
Like a bullet from a gun, run daddy run
Run daddy run, run daddy run
Run daddy run, run daddy run
