My father Michael is a genius
He sees this world the way no one can
He brought me up and shaped my mind at the tender youthful age of 9
He said don't take this for the way it is
You better watch out son when you give in
Before you know it the friends you trust will have stabbed you in the back he said

If you wanna steal you better
learn how to lie
If you wanna live you better
not fear how you die
Heaven and hell are just a myth so you better pay attention to this moment

There's a fine line between
genius and insanity
Is one he often treads so patiently
While pigs and ghouls would always try to knock the door

A system built to perpetuate
Pushers pushing, dealers dealing
and they can't escape
I got kids at home so pretend there's no living in this race
and they have said

If you wanna steal you better
learn how to lie
If you wanna live you better
not fear how you die
Heaven and hell are just a myth so you better pay attention to this moment

Sometimes when my apathy creeps on up from behind me
It reminds me why I moved my TV
Out of the room where I make love
In case I might just look up
And see the sky is falling from above
see it falling from above

If you wanna steal you better
learn how to lie
If you wanna live you better
not fear how you die
Heaven and hell are just a myth so you better pay attention to this moment
