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

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
Now look at me, your abandoned seed
I've become an intelligent man, you're the enemy

So, are you happy with yourself?
You're just a cowardice fiend
Addicted to things irrelevant
When 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

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
Now look at me, your abandoned seed
I've become an intelligent man, you're the enemy

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

Father oh Father how could you leave me alone?

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
Now look at me, your abandoned seed
I've become an intelligent man, you're the enemy

Father oh Father how could you leave me alone?

    The singer is talking about how ever since he was little his dad has never been in his life and he hates his dad for it. He is saying if you didnt want me and you were just going to leave then why did you have me? Why did you not use protection? Why?
