The Secrets – The Best You Can't Be lyrics

[Verse 1]
Father my father, why'd you run away from your boy?
It's a shame you'd rather play when you had the perfect chance to stay.
It's safe to say, you never cared anyway,
But one day, you'll come running back (to me).
I'm not the same, that's all I can say,
So don't expect me to take you back.

[Chorus]
So if you don't want me (so if you don't want me),
Then why'd you plant your seed?
You could have raised an intelligent boy,
One day you'll see (one day you'll see).
Now look at me (now look at me), your abandoned seed,
I've become an intelligent man, you're the enemy.

[Verse 2]
So, are you happy with yourself?
You're just a cowardice fiend, addicted to things irrelevant,
I was the one you should have supplied your love into.
I guess that's something you can't do,
I guess it's easy to leave and harder to be a man,
Of all of these things I need you to know, I hate you dad.

[Chorus]
So if you don't want me (so if you don't want me),
Then why'd you plant your seed?
You could have raised an intelligent boy,
One day you'll see (one day you'll see).
Now look at me (now look at me), your abandoned seed,
I've become an intelligent man, you're the enemy.

[Hook]
I waited so many years,
But you always disappear.
I'm sick of your lies,
God damn I hope they eat you alive!
You won't have much to love,
And it's all because you were my father,
Now you're the one that I don't trust!

[Bridge]
Father, oh father, how could you leave me alone?
Father, oh father, how could you leave me alone?

[Chorus]
So if you don't want me (so if you don't want me),
Then why'd you plant your seed?
You could have raised an intelligent boy,
One day you'll see (one day you'll see).
Now look at me (now look at me), your abandoned seed,
I've become an intelligent man, you're the enemy.

[Outro]
Father, oh father, how could you leave me alone?
Father, oh father, how could you leave me alone?
