Father's Son Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

In the glare of a neon sign, she laid her body down
The damned walked in beside her and he laid his money down
He said don't try to scream now but I want this one to hurt
And tonight my pretty one I'm gonna get my money's worth

He said they never listened, she said they'd never understand
That I don't this for pleasure, I just do it cause I can
I swear I didn't want to and I swear I didn't know
That things like this could happen to a 17-year old

And I've bundled up all of these fears inside
And I've bottled up all of this pain
And no one or nothing can take this away
But I won't let it happen again
Never again

In the haze of a smoky room
He chokes that bottle down
It's been a month since her saw her face
Underneath the blood stained gown

And he thinks about that little girl
And the one he has at home
And wonders what if that was my little girl
Walkin' down that road alone

And I've bundled up all of these fears inside
And I've bottled up all of this pain
And no one or nothing can take this away
But I won't let it happen again
Never again, never again
No

Maybe I'm just crazy or the devil got inside
Either way my soul is gone, and I'll end this all night
The one hand throws the whiskey, and the other throws the gun
As he cries out to the heavens, I am not my father's son

And I've bundled up all of these fears inside
And I've bottled up all of this pain
And no one or nothing can take this away
But I won't let it happen again
Never again, never again
No
