[Agony] You're alone in your bedroom
Hiding from the world, staring at the ceiling
[Me] Mother said “He’ll be home soon”
But he never was, and I knew how she was feeling

[Fear CHORUS] You always let him down - you'd never be like him
He'd always break you, never let you win
No matter what you said, he'd always disagree
You swore that one day you would be better than him
One day you'd win

[Agony] You're hiding out in the cellar
Aching and ashamed, covering up the bruises
[Me] And then he would tell her
how I tripped and hurt my head, how I'd always be a loser
[Fear CHORUS]

[Agony] You're all alone in your bedroom
How could you learn to care when nobody cares for you?
[Me] Mother said he'd be home soon,
but he never came…as for me, he didn't have to

    General CommentThat "he" is Me's father, right?

    My InterpretationYes, the "he" in the song is Me's father.
    In this song, Me is just a small child, afraid of anything, trying to strive to become better than his father, [who is later revealed to be worse off as a human being] because Me is inferior to him in every way. The father always takes the opposite end of Me's opinions, always posing as an adversary. During this song it is also revealed how his father thinks ill of him [And then he would tell her / How I tripped and hurt my head, how I’d always be a loser], and doesn't care for him at all. This results in Me's uncaring attitude towards his father to the end of the song.
