you feel that every night
of your adult life's
been a night of denial and desertion
i know that in your mind
you share your bread and wine
with quitters and with forfeits

and now you're wondering why
your children don't have the time
a day for you anymore
you can't understand
you've brought it upon yourself

and really what did you expect?

leaving a single mother and two young children to fend
- for themselves
while you had your freedom and your career
and a business student, who would do
whatever you wanted her to do in bed

so if you must know
how i feel about you
the truth is i can do without you
i'm far better off when you're far away

let's set things straight
i despise your morals and your values
but it isn't you that i hate
though i less than appreciate
the way that you regale your friends
with tales of travel to sunny lands
while your childrens are going hungry
it's that kind of thing that
i don't appreciate at all

so if you must know
how i feel about you
the truth is i can do without you
i'm far better off when you're far away

i can't offer you an olive branch
the will must be your own
and though i know as well as anyone
that you're stuck in time
if you lay down your sword
i'd walk beside you again
but not before then
not before then
then and not a moment before

so if you must know
how i feel about you
the truth is i can do without you
i'm far better off when you're far away

so if you must know
how i feel about you
the truth is i can do without you
i'm far better off when you're far away

i'm far better off when you're far away
i'm far better off when you're far away
i'm far better off when you're far away
i'm far better off when you're far away
