I know my enemy
And I can't forget his name
Distant memories of a man
That just couldn't change

And though I've tried to set aside
I still carry them today
When I look into the mirror
I can still see his face, oh Lord

Don't want to be like my father
I deserved a better man, a bigger man
To help me down my road

I cried a tear for my mother
She deserved a better man
A stronger man to embrace her soul

Ruined by a weaker man, a shallow man
The one who broke our home

Though I was a young boy
I can still remember everything
All the booze led to fights and abuse
And I lived through it every day

And though I try to heal inside
My heart is just a vault for pain
I've tried to snuff the candle
But I've been burnt by the flame, it's too late

Don't want to be like my father
I deserved a better man, a bigger man
To help me down my road

I cried a tear for my mother
She deserved a better man
A stronger man to embrace her soul

Ruined by a weaker man, a shallow man
The one who broke our home

Saw him twenty years later
In a store buying a jug of wine
He said, "Hey there, boy
I'm living nearby"

"We could catch up with a joint
And a bottle or two"
I said, "I'm sorry, Dad
Don't wanna end up being you, no"

Don't want to be like my father, no

I cried a tear for my mother
She deserved a better man
A stronger man to embrace her soul

Ruined by a weaker man, a shallow man
The one who broke our home
