She says daddy don't you beat me down again
I've got the time and I have seen your end
Heart attack at fifty watching Nick at Nite
A picture-perfect demise to your wasted life

Can't you see I'm only doing what's right
My daddy used to be my ass to sleep at night
I'd prove that bastard wrong if he was still alive
With my leaky roof, my pickup and a nine to five

And I just want you to know the truth
That everyone will fuck you over till you've given up
You're on your own

Mommy don't you just stand there again
You might as well be killing me with your own hands
Forgiveness takes a backseat to revenge
(Then she says)

But don't you worry honey God has a plan
Which for me involves this bottle of diazepam
So have faith, have a beer or find yourself a man

And she said no
I'm always put on hold
Always pacing back and forth
On the kitchen tile so cold

And oh,
Is this a recording hello?
I know you're avoiding my call
And I'm not disappointed at all

She left a note when she went away
It said: They're gonna make a movie about me someday

Three days till mom awakes and sees the sun
Baby's got the keys and she's on the run
Didn't even hide the smoking gun
Gotta make it to the west coast to be saved
And wash away her sins in the Pacific waves
A fresh start a pure heart and a clean slate

And if you ask her why
She won't have to lie

She look you in the eyes and say
"I did what I had to"

No
I was always put on hold
Always pacing back and forth
On the kitchen tile so cold
And oh
It came time to put down the phone
Trade the ringer for the trigger and pull
And I don't regret it at all
So don't be disappointed
