Tags and Lyrics – Honor Thy Father – Dream Theater

[01:26.94]We’re taught unconditional love
[01:29.51]That blood is thicker than water
[01:31.79]That a parent’s world would revolve
[01:34.21]Always around their son or their daughter
[01:36.88]You pretend I was your own
[01:39.29]And even believed that you loved me
[01:41.84]But were always threatened by some
[01:44.04]Invisible blood line that only you could see
[01:46.99]
[01:57.51]You took advantage of an outreached hand
[01:59.78]And twisted it to meet your every need
[02:01.96]”Gimme time to re-charge my batteries,
[02:04.51]I’ll see her when she’s older and I’ll bounce her on my knee”
[02:07.29]Well listen to me you ungrateful fool
[02:09.69]Her comes a dose of reality
[02:12.28]You’ll go to your grave a sad and lonely man
[02:14.46]The door is now closed on your pathetic little plan
[02:17.23]On and on and on and on it goes
[02:26.75]It’s so easy to run away with nothing in tow
[02:35.22]How can you ever sleep a wink at night
[02:37.38]Pretending that everything is alright
[02:39.87]And have the nerve to blame this mess on me
[02:43.28]
[02:45.13]Never in my life have I seen someone
[02:47.70]So ignorant to the damage he has done
[02:50.31]You’re the rotted root in the family tree
[02:54.04]
[03:17.24]I tried your 4 bill therapy
[03:22.77]I tried to make amends
[03:27.93]But nothing could lure you out of your selfish shell again
[03:37.79]
[03:49.61]Expecting everyone to bow and kiss your feet
[03:54.50]Don’t you see respect is not a one way street
[03:59.38]Blaming everyone for all that you’ve done wrong
[04:04.43]I’ll get my peace of mind when you hear this song
[04:08.38]On and on and on and on it goes
[04:18.43]And with every passing day true colors show

[04:26.47]How can you ever sleep a wink at night
[04:28.73]Pretending that everything is alright
[04:31.48]And have the balls to blame this mess on me
[04:34.89]
[04:36.47]Never in my life have I seen someone
[04:39.02]Oblivious to the damage he has done
[04:41.82]You’re the rotted root in the family tree
[04:45.45]
[04:47.17]Watch where you walk
[04:49.06]Don’t you dare cross the crooked step
[04:51.59]Watch the way you talk
[04:53.55]
[04:58.95]Don’t cross the crooked step
[05:01.39]
[08:42.81]On and on and on and on it goes
[08:51.91]Chauvinistic, heartless, selfish, cold
[09:00.59]How can you ever sleep a wink at night
[09:03.52]Pretending that everything is alright
[09:06.44]And have the balls to blame this shit on me
[09:09.92]
[09:11.51]Never in my life have I seen someone
[09:13.78]So fucking blind to the damage he has done
[09:16.55]You’re the rotted root in the family tree
[09:20.17]
